Enya attended christening of her baby niece Matilda.

Baby Matilda Campbell truly had a fairy godmother at her baptism in west Donegal.

Her aunt Enya, who has sold more than 80 million albums worldwide, was godmother at the christening in St Mary’s Church in Derrybeg. Little Matilda is the daughter of Enya’s younger sister Bridin Brennan (43) and her public relations husband, Australian-born Cameron Campbell. Matilda has one sister, Sinead (4). The family travelled from Dublin to Donegal, where Bridin and Enya’s roots are, for Saturday’s ceremony, which was attended by 30 other family members and friends.

Derrybeg parish priest Fr Padraig O Baoill and family friend Fr Kevin Gillespie officiated at the christening.

Enya travelled from her home at Manderley Castle in Killiney, Dublin; while Cameron’s brother, Andrew, flew from Australia to be godfather. The singer (50) looked stunning at the service in a long white skirt and short-cut orange jacket. After the ceremony, she proudly carried the christening candle from the church to a party at nearby Leo’s Tavern.
