Producer and close friend of Salma Hayek’s Felipe Fernández del Paso has revealed that the actress isn’t interested in baptizing her six-month-old daughter Valentina Paloma.

“The little girl is about to turn six months old. She’s beautiful. [Salma] doesn’t want her to be baptized because she just doesn’t feel like it. I saw her during Holy Week. I spent four days at her house in Los Angeles,” Ferández told the newspaper La opinion.

Hayek, 41, announced last March that she and the father of her child, 44-year-old French businessman François-Henri Pinault, were engaged to be married. Nonetheless, in recent statements to a magazine, the actress said she’s in no rush to get married. “Do I think we are going to get married? Probably. Will it make a difference? I hope not. I don’t have a need for marriage. You want to grow old with someone, you want to have a partner and to have children – we have all those things,” the Mexican actress and producer explained. Maybe religious traditions just don’t suit her.
