Let's say that a FR deity impregnated a mortal woman and she gave birth to said child. I don't imagine it was be a half-celestial right? Is there a template for such a being, and if so, what's the name? Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you

Direct children of deities are often quasipowers at minimum. Case in point: Iuz (demipower, son of Graz'zt, grandson of Baba Yaga), Xvim (son of Bane), Hextor and Heironeous (children of Stern Alia).

technically a half-celestial or half-fiend does kind of cover this. Another option is to look at the rules for pathfinder for their Mythic Adventures. I assume that since you're talking templates, you're talking 3.5, and since pathfinder and 3.5 are very similar you could adapt..

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

Yes, Pathfinder has mythic paths for godlings.

This should seem obvious.... I'm looking for a template for a elven child born of a elven mother and Erevan Ilesere as the deity father.

Normally I'm not stuck on anything pertaining to the Trickster god of the elves, but I'm flabbergasted on this one. And I've already incorporated the "Trickster-Touched" template from ESD. I need something more biological, not granted.

Free mythic ranks, the advanced template and a godling path ability. You're not going to get anything, but being an innately mythic character should satisfy whatever special snowflake powers you want this dude to have.

the child could turn out half "Celestial Eladrin", like a half Ghaele, though I do not know the stats for that. If it pure elf... What about simply using a standard Eladrin type?

Couple of options if we're talking about 3.5 here.

Half-Celestial. I think this one fits the best because it's not like ALL the divine grace is going to be gifted to the child, thus a mixing of both mortal/immortal blood would have similar effects of what this template gives.

Inner Plane Denizen template. Not exactly sure which plane you'd use though...

Celestial creature (p.31 of the Monster Manual) provides more celestial-ness of the divine I feel.

Saint. Usually reserved for people who've done extraordinary things, I think giving this template to a child of a divine being sounds good.

4E Realms = Great Taste, Less Filling.

I think Divine rank 0 and its abilities and powers may do the trick for this one.
