Another star has come to the defense of Kim Kardashian's pregnancy curves.
British pop beauty Cheryl Cole sent a supportive message to the reality star via Twitter on Thursday.
"Hi Gorgeous lady!" the 29-year-old Girls Aloud singer wrote. "Just wanted to send you a tweet to say I think you are an incredibly beautiful woman inside and out. I can only imagine how tough it is to be heavily pregnant and feeling extremely vulnerable on top of some of the daily criticism you take! I admire your tenacity and send you my best wishes with the rest of your pregnancy."
Kim, 32 (who is seven months pregnant with boyfriend Kanye West's baby), quickly replied to the kind messages, Tweeting, "Your message really touched me!
"Thank you so much for the support & positivity! It's so important for women to feel confident & at peace during this amazing time!" she continued. "Your sweet tweet really made me smile! Xoxo"
Cheryl joins a long list of celebrities who have spoken out against hurtful headlines printed regarding Kim's changing body.
In March, supermodel Helena Christensen wrote an open letter published on Huffington Post which blasted the criticism of the mom-to-be's weight.
"It is disgusting and despicable the way that certain media constantly harass the pregnant Kim Kardashian," Helena wrote at the time. "It's enough that they persistently project a negative focus on women's physical shapes; but a public bullying and attacking of a pregnant woman because of her growing shape is just lower than low."
