Top 10 dream godparents

UK poll reveals parents would ditch their child’s godparents in favour of a celebrity couple


A new poll has revealed that a massive 92% of parents would ditch their child’s current godparents if they could replace them with celebrities.


But which celeb couple nabbed the top spot?

Royal favourites Prince William and wife Kate were overwhelmingly named as the dream godparents, according to the survey of 500 parents of pre-schoolers conducted by baby gift website

A-list couple David and Victoria Beckham came next, followed by Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha.

Showbiz stars Jay-Z and Beyonce polled fourth, while Sir Elton John and hubby David Furnish came in fifth. 

Most respondents chose their dream godparents on the basis that they felt they made great role models.

However, one parent joked about Hollywood couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, “I’d be worried about them trying to adopt my kids.”

The top 10 also included TV ‘couple’ Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield, although we’re not sure what Holly’s hubby Dan will have to say about that!

The full list of dream godparents:

  1. Prince William and Kate
  2. David and Victoria Beckham
  3. David and Samantha Cameron
  4. Jay-Z and Beyonce
  5. Sir Elton John and David Furnish
  6. Jamie and Jools Oliver
