Congratulations all around!
The Hart of Dixie actress, who named her singing BFF as her newborn’s godparent in March, broke the exciting baby news on her Instagram on Monday (July 20, 2015). Sharing a family photo from the hospital, the mom-of-two wrote:
Previously, King, 36, explained why she chose Swift, 25, as her second son’s godmother.
“There was no thought behind it at all other than that I always knew she was going to be the godmother if I had another baby,” she told Elle magazine. “It’s because she’s incredibly thoughtful.”
She continued, “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.”
King and Newman, who directed Swift’s “Style” music video, are also proud parents to a son named James.
