A fairy Godmother? Us Weekly caught up with actress and model Jaime King at the Baby2Baby/Tiny Prints holiday party at the Grove in L.A. on Monday, December 12.
King, 37, has not one, but two famous godmothers to her two boys: celebrity pal Jessica Alba and King's bestie Taylor Swift, who just turned 27 on Tuesday, December 13. When asked how Swift is with her kids, King gushed over the pop star, who is godmother to Leo, 16 months.
"She’s amazing. She’s great!” King tells Us Weekly. "As she is with everybody around her.”
In August, King revealed that Swift made a generous donation to the hospital that saved her son’s life. Baby Leo was born with a congenital heart defect and had to undergo a major surgery. Swift was there by his side in the ICU (according to King’s Instagram) — a fairy godmother indeed!
Alba is godmother to the actress' firstborn, James, 3, and the celebrity pals will most likely be spending time together over the holidays, when King returns to L.A. after visiting her hometown of Omaha, Nebraska.
"We are going to go home to see my grandmother. She hasn’t met Leo Thames yet,” the model tells Us. "Then we are coming home and probably hanging with Jessica. We just like to all get together and hang out with the kids!"
As far as her working life goes, King updated Us on her latest film, Bitch, costarring Jason Ritter. "We just got accepted into Sundance! It's the most transcendental experience I've had in my entire career,” she excitedly shared with Us. "It's a dream, as an artist, to be a part of. I’m really so fortunate.”
King further shared how fortunate she is to be a part of Baby2Baby, an organization that helps underprivileged children in need. “I’m a lot more sensitive now as a mom. When I first started working with them I was not a mother, although I was trying, but there is definitely a difference. You start thinking, Oh, my God, what if I didn’t even have a diaper to change my child?”
With two adorable boys and two of the most do-gooding godmothers on the planet, King definitely has a lot to be thankful for this holiday season.
