Taylor Swift does not take the role of godmother lightly.

Actress Jamie King shared a heartfelt note to Twitter on Wednesday, revealing a donation the 1989 singer -- who is the godmother of King's 13-month-old son, Leo Thames -- made to Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in her godson's name.

"Tribute gifts are essential to patient care programs and services at Cedars-Sinai," the hospital's letter read. "They make the good work of the physicians, surgeons, researchers, and nursing staff possible and we are very grateful to receive them."

While expressing gratitude for Swift's contribution, King revealed that her infant son had been afflicted with a congenital heart condition known as "Transposition of the Great Arteries."

"He had a major heart surgery, that was terrifying, for us as parents, for our family," King, 37, shared on Twitter. "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.

"Taylor does countless selfless acts that go unnoticed because she does them silently, from such a great place of unconditional giving," King continued. "As the Godmother of Leo Thames for his birthday she gave an incredible donation to the people that saved his life, Dr. Allistar Phillips and his brilliant team."

"It made us realize that silence cannot connect other parents and people going through these issues," she wrote. "[Taylor] knew that giving back in this way would be the greatest gift one could give to us, to Leo Thames, to all of those with congenital heart issues."

The note added that Swift not only made the donation, but came to visit the family at the hospital while their son was undergoing surgery.

"She came to the ICU to comfort us, to hold, bond with him with such grace & strength," King wrote. "Our gift back is to share our story that anyone is going through this is not alone, we understand and want to stand up to bring awareness in the greatest way possible."

Since he was born, Swift has developed a special bond with Leo Thames, and has shared several pictures with her adorable godson on Instagram.
