Pregnant Jaime King bares her bump in a bikini pic

Actress Jaime King shared a black-and-white image of herself posing in a black bikini

Expectant Jaime King has taken to Instagram to show off her burgeoning baby bump.

The actress shared a black-and-white image of herself posing in a black bikini. "Backyard summer with baby and father," she captioned it, referring to her filmmaker husband, Kyle Newman.

The star, who is best-known for her role as Lemon Breeland in hit TV series Hart of Dixie, paired her bikini with a simple, swept-back bun as she lounged in her backyard.

Jaime announced back in May that she was expecting a child with Kyle.

Soon after, many reports claimed that the couple were expecting a girl, but she took to Twitter to quash such rumours.

"To all the media outlets printing that we are having a girl, that is false!" she said. "We don't know — we want a surprise."

She also updated fans with her pregnancy. "Our baby has the best name: The Untitled Newman-King Project," she joked in one tweet, while another more touching post read, "The most amazing thing I have experienced in my life thus far is feeling my baby move. This baby is pure rock'n'roll."
