Jaime King's toddler may have deleted her recent topless Instagram, but the model-turned-actress is defending her decision to post the revealing photo in the first place.

"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," she explained to Elle.

"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."

King also shared that she "couldn't stop crying" after seeing the criticism Kim Kardashian faced over her 2013 Met Gala outfit on social media.

"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…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."

And last, but certainly not least, the pregnant star dished on why she really chose Taylor Swift to be the godmother of her second child.

"It's because she's incredibly thoughtful. Choosing a godmother is a very sacred and important thing in our family," she said, adding that T.Swift cried after being asked the big question.

"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."
