“My whole life has been about presenting an image of perfection because that’s what sells in our industry. But as I become more and more of a woman and [think about] what I really put out there in the world, I don’t want to put out perfection anymore because that’s not attainable. That’s not the truth. I wanted to really empower other woman in knowing that hey, yeah, you know what? I am very thin but I’m pregnant and I feel beautiful and I feel grateful that I have a child growing inside of me and I love every little piece of me because if I don’t love myself, who’s going to love myself? And I also want other women to know that I don’t care what you look like. I love you too.”
— Jaime King on why she posted that topless baby bump photo. The pregnant actress talks more about the statement behind the image, the dangers of cyberbullying, and why our view on pregnancy needs to change here.
