This brought tears to our eyes!!
Jaime King revealed on Wednesday that her second son, and Taylor Swift‘s godson, Leo Thames faced some serious heart issues as a baby when he was diagnosed with Transposition of the Great Arteries, which left his parents unsure if he’d make it. So scary!
Fortunately, the lil cutie was able to receive some top-notch care from Dr. Allistar Phillips and his “brilliant team” at Cedars-Sinai hospital that ultimately saved his life.
The 37-year-old actress took to Instagram to explain her son’s diagnosis after receiving a letter in the mail informing her of T. Swift’s “tribute gift” in honor of LT — which inspired Jaime and her husband Kyle Newman to share their family’s story.
Next to a photo of the letter, Miz King penned:
“Dear all- at 20 weeks my 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. @taylorswift 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 ├░┼╕ΓÇÖ┼ô Jaime and Kyle”
