Jaime King attended the launch of Greta Bellamacina’s poetry book “Contemporary British Love Poetry” at Chateau Marmont on April 1, 2015 in Los Angeles, California. I’ve added 3 MQ photos to the gallery, be sure to check them below.
Jaime King is “pretty far along” into her second pregnancy, but she isn’t slowing down anytime soon thanks to her son, James Knight.
“It’s interesting because since I have a 17-month-old, so much of my energy and time and love is extended to him,” the Hart of Dixie star, 35, told PEOPLE at Just Jared’s Throwback Thursday Party presented by Monster High at Moonlight Rollerway in Glendale, California.
“My first pregnancy was like, ‘Oh, every moment is so sacred,’ and it’s just as sacred [this time], but it’s like, I can’t forget that I have this child that’s discovering new things and saying new words every day,” said King, who recently posed topless in photos she shared on Instagram recently.
In fact, this second time around, King isn’t “worried about every tiny little thing,” she says. “I know what to expect, but yet I’m still enjoying it and it’s still deeply profound.”
On March 25th, Jaime attended a dinner hosted by Rodarte and Vogue’s Sally Singer and Lisa Love to celebrate Jean Stories at the West Hollywood eatery A.O.C. She was also spotted while leaving the AOC with Kyle.

Here’s a PAPER Magazine’s old article posted on April 10, 1998 with Jaime as one of the “beautiful people”.
Nineteen-year-old fashion veteran James King is back in the saddle after a six-month hiatus prompted by the death of her boyfriend, photographer Davide Sorrenti. “Things started getting really hectic,” she admits. “I started so young and I thought it was good to go back home and do normal things for a while. I came back with a lot more energy and a much greater appreciation for what I do.” King, whose real name is Jamie (“I’m named after Jamie Summers, the Bionic Woman,” she clarifies), came to New York from Omaha, Nebraska, at 14. She now believes that girls under 18 are too immature to stomach the modeling lifestyle. “You’re not treated like a kid in this industry,” she complains. “Adults need to start taking responsibility for these children that they’re bringing in.” King can be seen in ads for Bebe, doing fashion interviews on MTV and taking acting classes. She claims the demise of the supermodel has awoken her to the reality of life after the catwalk. “I’m trying to use modeling as a vessel to get me somewhere else,” she explains.
Though Jaime King plays an old-fashioned Southern Belle on the CW’s ‘Hart of Dixie’, she embraces a seriously modern life in her sleek Beverly Hills home. The actress’s love for decor started as a child in Nebraska, where her parents taught their four kids to lay carpet and build cabinets. King’s budget may be more accommodating now, but she brings the same hands-on passion to decorating the midcentury-modern home she shares with her director husband Kyle Newman.
King (in a Stella McCartney tank and Rag & Bone skirt) posed with a painting by British street artist Eelus. “I tracked him down and had him paint it for my husband for Christmas,” she says.
King likes to cook fresh fish and produce from the farmers market, and regular game nights are a big draw. In the kitchen, the windows slide open to give the room a breezy, pavilion-like feeling. “What sold me was the indoor-outdoor feeling,” King says of the walls of glass that surround the lush garden.
The Living Room
King’s living room is lacquered with a super-durable substance-the same that is used on basketball courts. “The velvet couch has nothing to do with mid-century design, but I love how it warms up the living room,” says King.
The Dinning Room
Though King’s designer friend, Thom Filicia, helped with some of the decorative purchases, she says, “Kyle and I wanted to decorate the place on our own since we love the process so much.” All of the furniture in the glass-enclosed dining area (left) is custom-made. “The pieces feel very zen to me,” she says.
The Master Bedroom
“I’m so lucky that I found a man who likes pink,” says the ‘Hart of Dixie’ star. “It’s good to have an open mind about design and style.” The wallpaper in the master bedroom (at left) is by Farrow & Ball. The large print on the wall by artist Bella Bigsby contains green tones that echo the room’s outdoor view.
The couple enlisted a celebrity friend to help decorate their master bedroom’s cozy sitting area. “Right before Katy Perry became famous, she helped us paint,” King says. “We ate pizza and cookies!”
In Her Element
The actress says her eclectic taste in decor stems from feeling like an outsider as a child. “I was never popular or cool. I was artsy and creative,” she says. King shopped at Goodwill growing up, and applies the same aesthetic when decorating her home. “Don’t rush to fill your home with a bunch of objects,” says King (in a Pringle of Scotland tank and Melinda Maria bangles). “It’s way more fun to find things that have meaning.”
King lined the shallow pool in her home’s foyer area with aqua tile by Ann Sacks. It suggests water, but doesn’t require upkeep. “Nature is a key element in this home. I wanted the interiors to be in harmony with that.”
The Master Bath
“I’m more obsessed with home stuff than fashion, and everybody knows how much I love fashion,” says former model, Jaime King. Her master bath has a minimalistic vibe, with faux concrete walls and skylights.
The Outdor View
King was inspired to use the eco-friendly, synthetic grass called Forever Lawn after she saw it at pal Jessica Alba’s house. “It feels so real,” says the Omaha native. “We get our sleeping bags out there and have slumber parties!”
King’s Wall Art
King chooses pieces that make her feel good (at left, a bird painting by Sage Vaughn). And don’t go by price tags, she says. “If you see something at the flea market for five dollars that you find beautiful, buy it.”
Her Art Collecting Advice
King says to buy art locally, or from your friends (the canvas at left was given to her as a gift by Jake Gyllenhaal). “You don’t have to go to some famous dealer,” she says. “We like to walk into local galleries or see what friends are making.”
Here’s a new and great interview for ELLE Magazine where she talks about the picture she posted on her Instagram a few days ago and how she feels about that. This is truly inspiring.
Jaime King has been some level of famous ever since she was 14 years old. First came the modeling career (in the ’90s, “James King” mugged for Abercrombie + Fitch, walked the Chanel runway, graced the pages of Glamour, and had pretty much every gig in between); then the transition to acting, with roles in everything from a Lana Del Rey music video to a starring part in the CW’s Hart of Dixie. But last week, when the 35-year-old posted a topless Instagram of her baby bump captioned with a very powerful quote, it seemed like everyone’s eyes were on her all at once:
“My body. My growing baby, open for comments. Plain as day. I, like every other woman, bracing for your judgments. This is who I am. And I love me in every flaw and curve or flat or thin area. And I love you as well in every form that your body takes.”
King captioned her image My body. My growing baby, open for comments, “because that’s all people do all day is comment,” she told ELLE.com. “They just say whatever the fuck they want to say, and they don’t actually think that it’s going hurt me,” King says, alluding to people criticizing her for looking too thin while pregnant. She doesn’t believe anyone should be body shaming her or anyone else, overweight or underweight, pregnant or not. And while her Instagram was removed (“It was deleted by my child by accident. He completely locked me out of my computer, like it literally took the entire day to get back in”), she stands by its message. Here, the actress talks about the statement, the dangers of cyberbullying, and why our views on pregnancy need to change.
You said your Instagram was the release of feelings that had been building up in you for a long time. When did they start? At the Met’s Costume Institute Gala with Kim Kardashian when she was pregnant [in 2013]. She was with Kanye, but she wasn’t fully accepted by the fashion industry. Riccardo Tisci was very brave in dressing her.
Rumors that Hart of Dixie would be canceled began even before the fourth season started and while there has been no official confirmation yet, it seems like the show has been canceled. This was confirmed on twitter by show creator, Leila Gerstein, and Scott also posted a tweet about it (Who later deleted the tweet).
The series finale will air on March 27.
Folks wondering why #HartOfDixie got canned? Simple numbers game folks. Ratings still matter and dictate wins and losses. You have to WATCH.
— Scott Porter (@ScottPorter) March 13, 2015
The final three episodes of #HartofDixie begin tonight. Buckle up, I think you will enjoy the ride. Xo
We are still waiting for an official confirmation from The CW.
Edit: Here’s what Jaime’s posted on Instagram a few days ago.
From Lemons first entrance, to the last 2 final series episodes, I shall take my final bow. Farewell, my beloved Bluebell. It has been the best 4 years of my life, giving my heart and soul to this role & to our dear fans of Hart of Dixie. To Leila Gerstein you are my idol, a role model for every woman, a true storyteller, a BRILLIANT show runner & mother, you baffle me with your ability- you gave me a character that will never leave me because you saw that she was in me, that I could make her human, vulnerable, a punch in the face lovable Lemon. You let me take her and make her my own, knowing from the beginning that that is what I would do- make her so real it hurt because she just wanted so much to love and be loved. Thank you my dear cast & crew- we were on some ride or die shit- through the laughter, tears, pushes and pulls- how we have grown through each other so beautifully. To @joshschwartz76 & @TheFakeEmpire team- you are so NOT a fake empire- you lead me to the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow and actually touch it. I wished for that my entire Midwestern childhood. Zoe, isn’t it funny how enemies are just one in the same? Rachel B- you know I did this show to be close to you buddy, I love you. @cw_network, Mark Pedowitz, Lori Openden – there are no words. #ClassAct To our fans- You have lifted me and given me a gift greater than my wildest dreams. I thank you. I thank you. I thank you. And I love you more than words can ever express. And Lemon, you taught me so much- break the rules- be naughty for the ones you care about- be the BEST FUCKING FRIEND because loyalty requires shenanigans sometimes and being a best friend means that sometimes we act stupid, senseless, blinded by what looks like selfishness but is actually the purest love and wanting the best for that other person- tradition is great if it means being true to yourself, if not let it go gracefully or with the middle finger- you don’t have to rely on the approval or acceptance of others to love yourself, just love yourself because you are love, be a feminist & the only thing close to being “perfect” is following your heart. We are one. #HartofDixeForever Xx
