The actress speaks out in support of Kim

Gwyneth Paltrow reckons Kim Kardashian looks lovely with her baby bump.

The actress, 40, doesn’t think it’s fair that Kim has been criticised for putting on weight because it’s only natural for the pregnant star to get bigger.

‘I think that women should support each other, especially through pregnancy, it’s a difficult time and I think Kim Kardashian looks beautiful,’ Gwyneth tells ET Online.

‘And we’re supposed to gain weight when pregnant – that’s how God intended it.’

Kim, 32 – who’s expecting her first child with boyfriend Kanye West in July – posted a photo of her growing tummy on Instagram last weekend.

Despite reports that she now weighs 200lb, friends insist that she’s much lighter and is keeping healthy by indulging her sugar cravings with frozen yoghurt.

She’s also been keeping her Twitter followers updated on her regular work-out sessions.

‘Killed it in the gym today gunnar,’ Tweeted Kim last week.
