Taylor Swift Is Godmother To Jamie King's Baby & It's The Perfect Job For These 7 Reasons — PHOTOS
Are you guys prepared to enter a world of cute? Because that's what Taylor Swift fans entered on Sunday night, and that's what I'm about to introduce to you now. I mean, to be fair, there are a lot of things the 1989 singer does that are outrageously adorable. Remember when she gave romantic advice to her struggling fans? Or when Swift shared a video of her cats cuddling? (I will give you a moment so you can go and watch it again, because it is literally that cute.) The latest exhibit in this museum of adorableness came on Sunday, when Swift announced she was the godmother of Jamie King's baby with the world's cutest Instagram photo. If you somehow managed to think Swift wasn't going to be an utterly amazing godmother, allow me (and this picture) to change your mind.
The photo features King, Swift, and Swift's future godchild, alongside the caption, "Guess who just got named Godmother of this little one..... (ME)." You know, just in case you thought the answer was you or Beyoncé or Paul McCartney or something. Now Swift is already one of the greatest friends in the world, a position she holds to so many people I genuinely wonder how she manages to distribute her affections so evenly, but will that carry over into being a good godmother? Um, yes.
I mean, there are already seven good reasons that I can think of off the top of my head for why every child should love the idea of having Swift as their godparent.
1. She has adorable cats
And, by the time King's baby is born, she might have even more adorable cats. You know what's even better than visiting your grandmother? Getting to play with adorable cats. Especially adorable cats with amazing pop culture-inspired names.
2. She can cook and bake
Cookies. Cupcakes. Dinner. There might be the occasional bit of takeout at Casa de Swift, but there will also be a lot of unique food items there for you to enjoy. The place will probably always smell like cookies, and that's not a bad thing.
3. She would probably make all your clothes
Okay, so being able to make a needlepoint of Drake lyrics for Ed Sheeran does not mean that Swift is a walking sewing machine. But I choose to believe that it does, just like I choose to believe having her as your godmother means custom-made onesies.
4. She'd write a song about you
Just like "You R In Love" was written for Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff, so too will her godchild have a bonus track on her next album devoted entirely to them. Swift's godchild would be the new North West or Blue Ivy — having song credits before they can even talk.
5. She can teach the important life lessons
Peace, love, and partying with your friends are all you need to get through even the toughest of times. Swift has hit her lowest point and come back again, so she has a lot to teach about not letting the media intrude upon your privacy and not changing who you are to please others.
6. She'd raise you as a feminist
Swift would help lead the charge of raising the next generation of feminists, and excitedly so considering she is still in the midst of her own journey toward understanding and living the meaning of the movement. Whether King's child is male or female, Swift will help make sure they believe in equality for all sexes.
7. The Instagram photos would be killer
Say it with me now: awwwwww.
