Jaime King Defends Kim Kardashian, Gushes Over Taylor Swift

by at .

Jaime King is one of the most outspoken moms in Hollywood.

The Hart of Dixie star is a known advocate for public breastfeeding and has now even gone so far as to defend Kim Kardashian in her quest to stand up for impending parents everywhere.

Speaking to Elle, King said she aims to “empower women,” to let them know what “I don’t care what you look like,” especially if you have a life growing inside of you.

Along those lines, King added she "couldn't stop crying" over the backlash Kardashian received for the dress she donned (above) to the 2013 MET Gala in New York City.

"Here was this beautiful glowing pregnant woman who is probably so excited to be attending the Met ball for the first time with the man that she loved," the actress noted.

"And she has a beautiful growing child inside of her, and yet everybody bashed her and called her a whale or said she looked like a couch or drapes."

King is the mother to a 16-month old son and announced in February that she's expecting her second baby this year.

She has named Taylor Swift godmother and explained why to Elle.

"It's because she's incredibly thoughtful… We try and choose people who we know would raise our child the way that we would raise our child and her thoughtfulness, her kindness, her authenticity - the way that she's generous with her family, with her friends, with her fans - is so powerful to me."

King may have been the first to bestow this honor on Swift, but she's far from the only celebrity to feel that way about the artist...
