Taylor Swift has taken some adorable photos of her first meeting with her newborn godson. Her best friend Jamie King welcomed the baby boy last week, and the singer posted a cute image on Instagram on Tuesday (July 29th) with the caption “Meeting my boy”.

Leo Thames Newman was born on July 16th, the second child for 36 year old King and her husband Kyle Newman. The couple are already parents to another son, James Knight, who was born in October 2013. King announced in February that she was expected another baby, and revealing the following month that the 1989 superstar would be the child’s godmother.

The first photo sees Swift gazing lovingly at Leo, who is asleep in her arms, as King looks on with a smile. Swift also added a picture of the baby’s tiny hand clasped around her finger, adding the caption: “Your little hand’s wrapped around my finger and it’s so quiet in the world tonight.”

When asked why she chose Swift as godmother for her child earlier this year, the model and ‘Hart of Dixie’ actress King told Elle magazine that it was mainly down to the singer’s incredibly kind and thoughtful nature.

She said: “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.”

Perhaps it won’t be too long before 25 year old Swift is doing the motherhood thing herself, with Life & Style magazine reporting on Wednesday that her current boyfriend Calvin Harris is considering proposing very soon, having eyed up a breathtaking $500,000 engagement ring…
