Taylor Swift, mega popstar, is officially a godmother to BFF Jaimie King's baby, Leo. Swift and King have been spotted multiple times in public with one another out on the town. They are BFFS always holding on to one another and enjoying each other's company. Amid the backlash Swift has received this week among the many fresh feuds, it looks like Swift is focusing on something else more important, family.
Why did Jamie King choose Taylor Swift?
“It’s because she’s incredibly thoughtful. Choosing a godmother is a very sacred and important thing in our family. They’re going to be guiding your child, and they’re responsible for them if something was to ever happen. We try and choose people who we know would raise our child the way that we would raise our child and her thoughtfulness, her kindness, her authenticity—the way that she’s generous with her family, with her friends, with her fans—is so powerful to me. She’s so uninhibited in her giving—the presents she gives to her fans, she wraps every single one, she paints the stuff. It’s all her. It’s just beyond. She’s so clear with what it is that she wants to do yet at the same time she leaves herself so vulnerable. It is really powerful to me. That’s why I feel like she’s going to be the perfect godmother. … We were hanging out on the couch and I was like, ‘Hey, would ever want to be a godmother?’ And she was like, ‘Uh, yes!’ And she cried and, you know, all the fun things that best friends do.”
Swift threw a rocking baby shower for King weeks after King announced her second pregnancy in February. King graciously thanked her with, "@taylorswift is not only going to be an exquisite Godmother but one of the best friends one could ask for."
Meet baby Leo Thames.
Leo was born on July 16th to his father Kyle Newman and famous mother Jaimie King, a model and actress most famous for her role in Hart of Dixie. King also posted this photo captioning hers, "My loves meet. Baby boy Leo Thames and his God Mother = Bliss." King and her husband also have another son named James Knight who is currently 21 months old. His God Mother is Jessica Alba. What a wonderful family!
The lyrics used for the caption are from Taylor Swift's song "Never Grow Up" which seems too fitting.
King added, “It was because of her morals and her values, the way that she treats people and how hard-working she is … her family and how close she is to them. I see what she gives out there to her fans and to her family. That’s the kind of person I want to be the guide and the spiritual protector of my child.”
Do you think Swift will make a good God Mother or is this just good press?
