The Hart of Dixie star captioned the revealing pic, "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."
Despite the supportive message of self-love and body acceptance, the 35-year-old actress deleted the shot not long after posting it.
King explained in a Twitter exchange with PopSugar Moms, who gave King "kudos" for sharing the bold pic, "I have a savvy baby. It was a brave post for a few minutes! He deleted it and several other things!"

King is currently pregnant with her second child with her husband, director Kyle Newman. The couple welcomed their first child, James, in October 2013.
