[Rough translation:]
A month after the birth of the princess, on Feb. 5, took place the baptism of the princess in the church of the Marble Palace in St. Petersburg, in the presence of members of the Imperial Family. Those receiving her from the font [i.e., Godparents] who were personally present at the ceremony were: Empress Maria Fedorovna, spouse of Emperor Alexander III, Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna, spouse of Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich, Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich, and Grand Duchess Ekaterina Mikhailovna, daughter of Grand Duke Michael Pavlovich. Emperor Alexander III also attended this family celebration.

The key phrase here is "personally present".
As was the custom among royalty, any number of relatives could have been named as (honorary) Godparents -- whether present or not.
When Tsesarevich Alexis was born, Tsar Nichols II declared all the soldiers in the active army fighting the Japanese as his godfathers.
