Tony Blair is godparent to one of Rupert Murdoch’s children, it emerged last night.
The pair are reportedly on such friendly terms that the former prime minister attended the baptism of Mr Murdoch’s two youngest daughters.
Their seemingly intimate relationship is disclosed in an interview in the October issue of Vogue magazine with the tycoon’s wife Wendi, 42.
The magazine reported that Mr Blair travelled to the banks of the Jordan to witness the religious ceremony in March last year.
The ceremony, hosted by Queen Rania of Jordan, took place at the spot where Jesus is said to have been baptised.
