Taylor Swift is proving she might just be a real life fairy godmother!
The singer has been laying low (minus jury duty earlier this week) but thanks to her pal Jaime King, we know of her latest good deed. Taylor is the godmother to Jaime’s son Leo Thames who recently turned 1 and it looks like he’s been having some health problems. Jaime took to instagram to share, “Dear all – at 20 weeks our son was diagnosed with Transposition of the Great Arteries AKA TGA. He had a major heart surgery, that was terrifying, and traumatic for us as parents, for our family. Only a few of our best friends knew. I felt that I had to protect him in fear of the unknown, fear he would not make it. We felt isolated & confused.”
Jaime posted a picture of a letter along with the caption from Cedars-Sinai informing them that a donation had been made in their son’s name to help with congenital heart surgery research and efforts. While this act could have gone unnoticed, Jaime decided to share Taylor’s good deed with the world.
She continued, “[Taylor Swift] does so many selfless acts that go unnoticed because she does them silently, from such a great place of unconditional giving. As the Godmother of Leo Thames for his birthday she gave an incredible donation to the people that saved his life Dr. Allistar Phillips and his brilliant team. It made us realize that silence cannot connect other parents & people going through these issues. TS knew that by giving back in this way would be the greatest gift one could give to us, to Leo Thames and to all of those with congenital heart issues. She came to the ICU to comfort us, to hold and bond with him with such grace & strength. Our gift back is to share our story that anyone that is going through this is not alone, we understand & want to stand up to bring awareness in the greatest way possible. Leo Thames is the strongest, healthiest boy because of this team. He will live a full and whole life & never have to look back. Thank you Taylor & to EVERYONE listed on this letter we love you. With gratitude and humbleness.”
This just melts our heart!
