Farrell’s second son baptised in Poland

HOLLYWOOD star Colin Farrell and his girlfriend, Polish actress Alicja Bachleda-Curus, have baptised their baby son in Poland.

Daily newspapers Fakt and Super Express in Poland ran photographs showing the couple in the Church of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Krakow during the baptism ceremony of their son Henry Tadeusz Farrell who was born in October.

The actress’s mother, Lidia Bachleda-Curus, confirmed the baptism took place on Monday afternoon but refused to give more details, for privacy reasons.

The manager of Krakow’s Floryan hotel revealed the couple and relatives had a dinner of traditional Polish food at the exclusive hotel located on the Krakow market, following the ceremony.

The couple, who began their relationship earlier this year, were joined at the Karmelicka old church by their immediate family.

Farrell was apparently furious following reports that a banned sex tape showing him romping with a Playboy model was sent to his girlfriend’s family, who are known to be a traditional Catholic family.

The actor had won an injunction in 2005 over the film showing the sex session with model Nicole Narain, 35.

The Dublin-born star is believed to have flown to Poland straight from Ireland, where last Sunday his older brother, Eamon, married his partner.

Farrell’s girlfriend gave birth to the couple’s first baby on October 7 last, but managed to keep the news under wraps from the media for nearly a week before the actress’ brother spilled the beans.

The pair met while filming Ondine in Cork and have been an item since.

Farrell has another son, James Padraig with US model Kim Bordenave.

In October 2007, Farrell revealed that his son has Angelman Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder characterised by developmental delay, speech impairment, movement or balance disorder, excessive laughter and even seizures, according to the Angelman Syndrome Foundation.
