Jaime King stands by her motto ‘if you like it wear it,’ when it comes to her 4 ½-year-old son James Knight Newman. The actress attended Disney/Pixar’s premiere of Incredibles 2 on Tuesday, walking the red carpet with her main squeeze as her date, son James.
King, 39 wore a long red floral printed dress and white pumps to the screening while James went for hot pink dress adorned with bows and flowers. But the cutie opted for comfort when choosing his shoes, unlike his mama. James opted for his slip-on sneakers with the beloved Star Wars character R2-D2 on them.
“I love my baby SO MUCH!!! He chose my lipstick and dress with Annabelle Harron,” King wrote alongside her Instagram post of she and her boy. “To my beautiful husband, I love thee. The greatest creation has been our love made manifest in our children. #jamesknight #ifyoulikeitwearit #incredibles2 Premiere.”
Several leading Hollywood starlets responded to Jaime’s post sending loving support to the mother/son duo. Selma Blair, Rachel Zoe, Olivia Munn, Charlotte Ronson, and Lisa Ling were among the few that left kind comments. “What a wonderful mom you are,” wrote Lisa Ling.
The former ‘Hart of Dixie‘ actress has been vocal in the past when it comes to her beliefs about the importance of children being permitted to express themselves through their fashion choices. King who designed a collection for the children’s gender-neutral brand Gardner and the Gang said, “We have set limitations upon our children and babies, whether that be consciously or subconsciously. Somewhere along the line of ‘dos and don’ts,’ we relegated children into little boxes that are so restrictive.”
“Somehow, the world decided that boys belong in blue and girls belong in pink and anything other than that is weird or strange and in some ways frowned upon — as if allowing a boy to wear purple or hot pink is steering them in the wrong direction.”
King who is also mama to her son Leo who turns 3 next month went on to say, “This collection is vastly important because we want any boy that likes our dresses to rock them. For any girl that doesn’t want to wear a skirt to put on some sweet leggings.”
Thank you, Jaime, for reminding us it’s ok to be who we are and live our most authentic life!
