It is believed the baby's mother filmed the video at their home.

She can be heard laughing at her partner's horrid actions in the background.

She says, “dear God in heaven. Don’t baptise the child like that whatever you do."

The woman, who is also from Drogheda, can also be heard calling her partner a "bad b******d".

The shocking video went viral before it was deleted from social media.

It is believed the baby is now being cared for by the State.
