Supermodel Helena Christensen has vehemently defended pregnant reality TV star Kim Kardashian, who has been slammed repeatedly by the media for her recent weight gain.

Kardashian and her rapper boyfriend Kanye West are expecting their first child this summer, and the media has been having a field day with the star's changing body shape and her maternity style.

Danish model Christensen, who has a 13-year-old son, wrote an open letter defending the reality star and all women who struggle with body image while pregnant.
The Huffington Post published the letter in which Christensen writes, "It is disgusting and despicable the way that certain media constantly harass the pregnant Kim Kardashian. 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.
"Whatever else the tabloid-media feel a sick need to spew out of their venomous bowels, let that be their lame choice. But there should be some moral compass. It doesn't matter who the woman is or what she does. No one should ever be publicly judged for their body, but to attack an expecting mother is sacrilegious and just plain wrong. A pregnant woman should not be criticized for her shape, period!!"

Kardashian recently slammed claims she weighed over 200 pounds, as a tabloid recently suggested.
