Congratulations to the parents!

Jaime has been open in the past with her struggles with fertility and miscarriages. 

She is also an advocate of breastfeeding - but understands every mother and child's relationship is different and respects that. 

Speaking to People after the birth of her first child James, she had a very matter of fact opinion on the matter - stating that regardless of a family's decision, they should be respected. 

“I feel like now that I’m a mother, I realize that there’s a huge schism out there; that women feel judged because of what they choose to do and how they choose to feed their child. Why should we hide it?," King said. 

“I also wanted to share the idea that it doesn’t matter whether you breastfeed or formula feed –as long as you are loving and caring for your child, that’s all that matters.

“The responses from mothers were so grateful because there have been people out in the media being very judgmental, saying women have to breastfeed, or have to do this or have to do that.

“I think that it’s really unfair for anybody in the spotlight — any sort of celebrity who has a very privileged life — to go out there and tell mothers what to do when they don’t understand their socioeconomic circumstances, when they don’t understand their health circumstances, when they don’t understand what their life is about.”

She continues, “I feel a responsibility as somebody who’s in the spotlight and as a public figure to let these women know they are not alone. I grew up in Omaha, my mother did both, and I am perfectly healthy and happy and fine.”

So to hear news of a healthy, happy baby is no doubt a godsend for her family, friends and fans - including god mother TAYLOR SWIFT!
