Generous Taylor Swift has struck again!
You can hate Swift’s music or her stance on Spotify, but you can’t deny that the lady has a huge heart and she loves her fans.
Swifty showed up announced to a household in Connecticut on Thursday bearing expensive gifts for the family of Stephanie Barnett, a superfan who had reached out to Swift several years ago on Twitter, according to NBC Connecticut.
“I opened the door and she’s like, ‘Hey Steph!’ and it’s just her right there, and I lost it for a while,” Barnett told NBC.
Turns out that Barnett had turned to Swift’s music when she was going through a hard time in her life and was struggling to conceive. Barnett now has a 2-year-old son named Leyton, who just happens to have found a fairy godmother in Swift.

“She went to FAO Schwarz and got a ton of stuff for Leyton,” Barnett revealed. “The car was so big, she’s like, ‘I don’t know how to ship it, so I thought I’d bring it over.’ And I was like, who does that? It’s incredible,” she added about the mini motorized Mercedes Benz Swift purchased for her son.
Swift’s generosity was far from lost on Barnett. “She’s unbelievable. The things she does for her fans and she’s a really amazing person,” she said. “She’s gotten a lot of people through so much more than anyone can imagine. I was literally bawling on my couch, like, inconsolably, that she would do this for me and my son.”
And Barnett is right. Besides helping her fans by touching them through her music, Swift has shown up in person on several other occasions. In September, she hand-picked 35 fans to hang out all day with her at her own home, and she even baked them homemade cookies and gave a sneak-peek listen to 1989 before it was released. Swift has also been known to visit children’s hospitals to sing and raise the spirits of extremely ill patients.
