Jaime King has praised Taylor Swift as an ''amazing'' godmother.

The 37-year-old actress chose the 'Shake It Off' singer to take care of the spiritual welfare of her and husband Kyle Newman's 17-month-old son Leo Thames, and she couldn't have picked anyone better for the role.

Asked how Taylor is with Leo Thames and three-year-old James, Jaime told Us Weekly magazine: ''She's amazing. She's great! As she is with everybody around her.''

Actress Jessica Alba is James' godmother, and the 'Hart of Dixie' star is looking forward to seeing her friend - who has daughters Honor and Haven with husband Cash Warren - over the festive season once she returns to Los Angeles from her hometown of Omaha, Nebraska.

She said: ''We are going to go home to see my grandmother. She hasn't met Leo Thames yet.

''Then we are coming home and probably hanging with Jessica. We just like to all get together and hang out with the kids!''

Jaime works closely with Baby2Baby, an organisation which helps underprivileged children, and she admits her relationship with the charity has changed since she has kids of her own.

She said: ''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?''

Jaime previously explained she chose Taylor and Jessica to be godparents to her kids because they share the same values that she and Kyle have.

She said: ''It really has nothing to do with the fact they're Taylor Swift or Jessica Alba.

''It's a collective way of raising your children that has to do with the fact that you're choosing people who will help spiritually guide them and be there.''
