Taylor Swift has a long history of going above and beyond for her fans. Remember that Christmas when she sent handwritten notes and personalized gifts to her Swifties? Or the house that she reportedly bought for a pregnant woman? Well, yesterday, February 23, the Reputation singer was at it again: This time, surprising a fan and his new fiancé at the couple's engagement party.
Alex Goldschmidt and his new fiancé, Ross Girard, were celebrating their engagement at Sycamore Tavern in Hollywood when Goldschmidt instructed his friends and family to gather around for what the guests likely thought was just going to be a meaningful toast. “There was a person who is not here who sort of played a part in all of this,” Goldschmidt told his friends and family. "So I would like to welcome, and you to give a warm welcome to my friend Taylor." And then, none other than T. Swift herself, wearing a navy floral dress, walked into the party with her guitar in hand.
Swift explained that Goldschmidt, who is an associate director at Digital Media Management, emailed her and told her that “King of My Heart” is very meaningful for him and his fiancé. “I haven’t been on tour for a while, but hopefully I’ll do alright,” Swift added before beginning an acoustic performance of the song. “So this is from Alex, but sung by me.”
The groom-to-be explained its meaning further on his Instagram account. “I decided to propose to Ross listening to this song in my car," he wrote. "❤️ I can’t thank Taylor enough for wanting to help make this day so special. #RossAndAlexForever."

Goldschmidt later shared more on Twitter, writing, "I have never felt so overwhelmed with love and exhaustion in my life. Thank you for all the messages. I can’t possibly respond to them all, but know that your love and support means the world to me. And holy shit, Taylor Swift is an angel who gives the best gifts." Uh, that's for sure.

Congrats to the couple!
