Taylor Swift‘s friend Jaime King dug deep when she was thinking about who she would want to take care of her precious children in the unthinkable event that something happened to her and her husband, Kyle Newman. Two names came to the minds of the parents-to-be: Jessica Alba and Taylor Swift.
Jessica Alba was granted godmother duties for the couple’s first bundle of joy, twenty-one month old James Knight Newman, and, now, another gracious godmother has joined the family. Staying true to her gut instincts, Jaime asked Taylor to undertake responsibilities of motherhood, if necessary, for the second Newman child. Of course, Taylor leapt at the idea of having such an integral role on behalf of her close friend.
Just yesterday, Taylor met her godson, Leo Thames Newman, for the first time (born July 16th), and the pictures are precious beyond words.
Taylor also posted this once in a lifetime photograph, captioning her own lyrics to “Never Grow Up”:
“Your little hand’s wrapped around my finger and it’s so quiet in the world tonight…”
And millions of people around the world collectively said “awwwww!!!”
Congratulations to Jaime King and Kyle Newman on the birth of their beautiful son, and to Taylor Swift on her new fairytale-esque role of godmother.
