How Taylor Swift Helped a Homeless and Pregnant Fan
'Tis the season to be kind and generous, and there's one celebrity who has a track record in that arena that knows no boundaries. That's Taylor Swift, who's known for granting her fans all sorts of wonderful wishes — with the latest perhaps being one of the most heartwarming of all.
According to People, a fan named Stephanie described on the new The Swift Life app what the superstar did for her this year.
"What many of you don’t know is that for 8 months of my pregnancy I was homeless,” Stephanie told other fans on the app. “Long story short, our first flat was condemned for health and safety reasons and we lost everything. To add to the stress, during this time [my partner] Matthew lost his job."
Stephanie's mother managed to get to Swift and tell the singer of her daughter's predicament. “My mum told Taylor and just asked her to make me feel special at her show I was attending in Manchester,” Stephanie explained. “After the show Taylor took us back to her dressing room where she told me, 'Stephanie. You’ve been in my life for a long time and you’ve never asked me for anything. You could have reached out and I would have helped you. But you didn’t. Your mum told me.'"
Swift said that she wanted to give Stephanie her money back for the concert ticket — but, instead, ended up helping her buy a home and "all I needed for my baby."
Needless to say, the grateful fan noted, "I love [Swift] forever."
