Nancy Ajram is known to share a sweet snap with one of her three children from time to time, but it's rare we get a picture of her entire family.

Luckily, her youngest daughter's christening has provided the perfect opportunity for Ajram to show off all five members of her gorgeous brood.

The Hassa Beek star has shared intimate photos of the baptism of her third daughter, Lya, who was born on January 31 this year.

The 36-year-old singer is mother to two older daughters with her dentist husband Fadi El Hachem; Mila, born in 2009, and Ella, born in 2011.

The family were decked out in their sartorial best for the celebrations, with Mila, Ella and Lya in matching headbands. Lya was dressed in a lace christening gown by Lebanese children's couture house Graziella Oueiss, while the older two girls wore matching white dresses.

A picture of the five-member clan posing in front of the food table, featuring an incredible three-tier cake, has been liked by over 774,000 people, while a snap of Ajram and Lya has garnered over 1.1 million likes.

Just as she did for her first two daughters Mila and Ella, the Lebanese star released a song to celebrate Lya's birth in February. Much like Mila’s Ya Rabi Tekbar Mila and Ella’s Hadri Laabek, Ajram’s ode to Lya, entitled simply Lya, was an intimate track featuring acoustic guitars and subdued beats.

Not long after the song released, Ajram opened up to her fans about her love of breastfeeding in an emotive Instagram post, saying "breastfeeding has always been one of the most beautiful experiences in my life".

"For me it's the most powerful way to bond with Lya and make her feel safe, loved and cared for," Ajram added. "There is nothing more natural and right than what Mother Nature decided for us to do."
