Lisa Vanderpump shared photos from an important ceremony and family celebration.
On July 17, 2022, the former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” gathered with her family to celebrate the christening of her grandson, Theodore Sabo. Baby Teddy, who is the first child of Vanderpump’s daughter, Pandora, and her husband Jason Sabo, was born in November 2021. He has been a “blessing” to Vanderpump since before his birth.
After Pandora announced her pregnancy news last year, Vanderpump, 61, told People that it was long overdue good news for the family after multiple losses in a short time span.
“It’s very happy news for us after losing my brother, my mother, and [my dog] Giggy in the last three years — it’s a blessing,” Vanderpump said of her daughter’s pregnancy. “I love children, I love being a mother … it’s such welcome news for us.”
So perhaps it’s no wonder that the proud grandmother pulled out all the stops to help host a stunning religious ceremony for her grandchild.
