The Hart of Dixie actress revealed Wednesday that her now-13-month-old son Leo Thames underwent “a major heart surgery” when he was 20 weeks old — a time she remembers as “terrifying, and traumatic for us as parents, for our family.”
In celebration of his first birthday in July, Swift made a tribute gift donation to Cedars-Sinai in honor of her godson.
“Dear all- at 20 weeks our 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,” King posted to Instagram alongside an image of the letter from Cedars-Sinai. “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.”
