The “Shake it off” hitmaker paid a tribute to four-week-old Leo Thames – her friend Jaime King and husband Kyle Newman’s second child – during her concert on Aug 15, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Speaking before performing “Never grow up”, Swift told the sold-out crowd: “I wrote it when I was like 18 or 19 but my friend just had a baby and she made me godmother of it and I was holding this little baby the other night and I was just thinking differently.

“When you’re holding onto something that’s so innocent and so perfect and has no idea what’s coming for it with the world. The world is going to throw so many things at you as we grow up.”

King took to Twitter to share how “blessed” she is to have the 25-year-old pop star play such an important role in her son’s life.

She wrote: “This is so beautiful Tay, Leo Thames is so blessed (sic).”

Swift met her godson for the first time when he was just two weeks old and used lyrics from “Never grow up” to caption photographs of their meeting on social media.

Alongside an image of the baby’s hands curled around her finger, she wrote: “Your little hand’s wrapped around my finger and it’s so quiet in the world tonight…(sic)”
