Taylor Swift has a full-blown case of nostalgia, and we’re loving it! Not only did she channel a past decade with her new album, 1989, but now she’s throwing back to her pre-teen years. The superstar just shared the most adorable photo of herself from when she was 12 and rocking her long wavy tresses in cornrows.
She explained the shot in her caption: “The last time an album sold as many copies as 1989 did first week, it was 2002, I was 12, and going through my ‘braids phase’. #nofilternecessary.” Now 24 years old, the singer also reclaimed the No. 1 song in the U.S. this week with “Shake It Off” and is on track to have the best-selling album of the year.

The actor shared the happy news on Facebook on Wednesday. "After 9 months of intensive development, Team Downey is pleased to announce our 2014 fall/winter project," he wrote. "Principal photography commenced 11-14 and will continue until she says, 'Dad! You are embarrassing me... I'm 30, this has gotta stop.'

"Yep... Avri Roel Downey joined the party @ 3:22 a.m. on November 4th... she's 7lbs even, spans 20 inches, and is accompanied by a variety of Susan's traits that have seemingly overwritten my 'junk DNA.'

"I'll post pics here + there when I'm not too busy staring..."

The new addition to the family joins 2-year-old brother, Exton Elias. Though Downey is also father to 21-year-old Indio (from his previous marriage to Deborah Falconer), this is the star's first daughter.
