Taylor Swift took the opportunity to jet back to Los Angeles and meet her new godson on a week off from her 1989 World Tour. Taylor shared a few sweet snaps with the newborn baby boy, Leo Thames, whose mother is Jaime King.
“Meeting my boy,” the 25-year-old captioned one sweet snapshot of her having cuddles with the tiny baby, gazing down at him and smiling. A second image shows Leo Thames’ hand curled around Taylor’s finger – “Your little hand’s wrapped around my finger and it’s so quiet in the world tonight,” she wrote alongside, lyrics from her song Never Grow Up.
Proud mother Jaime, 36, also shared the photo, writing: “My loves meet. Baby boy Leo Thames and his God Mother = Bliss.”
Hart of Dixie actress Jaime and her director husband Kyle Newman welcomed little Leo James Newman on 16 July. The couple are also parents to 21-month-old son James.
Jaime announced her second pregnancy in February and just a few weeks late revealed that she had chosen Shake It Off star Taylor to be the baby’s godmother – actress Jessica Alba is godmother to James.
“I always knew she was going to be the godmother if I had another baby,” Jaime told Elle magazine. “Choosing a godmother is a very sacred and important thing in our family We try and choose people who we know would raise our child in the way that we would raise our child, and her thoughtfulness, her kindness, her authenticity is so powerful to me. She is so uninhibited in her giving It’s just beyond.”
Last month, Taylor pulled out all the stops to put on a spectacular baby shower for Jaime, complete with a photo booth, costumes and a star-studded guest list – Jessica Alba, Gigi Hadid, Emma Roberts, Sarah Hyland and Nina Dobrev were just some of the famous faces to attend.

“How can I put this into words,” Jaime captioned an Instagram photo from the party. “@taylorswift is not only going to be an exquisite Godmother but one of the best friends one could ask for.
“Thank you Tay for throwing me such an insanely beautiful baby shower. Less than 12 hours after performing for 100k strong. I love you SO MUCH xx.”
