Jaime King Cuddles Up to Son James

12/22/2013 at 01:00 PM ET

It’s cuddle time.

Jaime King looked ever the doting mommy on Saturday when she posted an adorable photo of 3-month-old son James Knight resting on her chest.

“Nothing like afternoon baby cuddles with #jamesknightnewman,” the Hart of Dixie actress captioned the Instagram snapshot.

King, who welcomed her baby in October, stepped out with a toned figure shortly after her son was born.

As for her fit physique, the actress recently told PEOPLE, “Honestly, it’s genetics and I worked every day of my pregnancy on the set of Hart of Dixie filming 16 hours a day until the day I went into labor.”

She also added that while it’s been challenging, she’s adjusting to motherhood.

“It’s tough,” she said. “It’s the greatest blessing I’ve ever had in life and also one of the most overwhelming things I’ve ever experienced.”

She continued, “Finding the balance between work and taking care of my child is tough. I’m from the mid-west so for me, it’s all about family and it’s always been about family. That’s my challenge. I don’t want to leave my child at all!”

Beautiful picture! I love how she doesnt feel the need to cake on makeup like other celebs for pictures like this. Its all about a tender moment between mommy and baby 🙂

Then DON’T leave your child! These “young” career women desperately need to talk to the “older” career women who tried, and unsuccessfully “did it all”, and listen to the regrets they have NOW about not having spent enough time with their children. You’ll think twice about that “career.”

@Jess. I am 41, my child is 16. I have never regretted being a working mom. Our home is happy, our bonds are tight.

He is adorable and she looks beautiful naturally. I have a special place in my heart for this celeb baby because he looks so much like my son when he was a baby.

Oh my lord, will you look at that head of hair…

What a doll!

wait, her name is Jaime and she named her son James? How is that going to work? Like Jaden/Jada and Willow/Will Smith? Oh. that’s just so sad. I don’t know who this woman is, but she seems to think people who are not from the Midwest don’t want to take care of their children. Hmmm….

People needs to find words other than “adorable” and “sweet.” . so and so posts a “sweet shot” and every child is adorable. nah.

philly- Well, they’re hardly going to call a child ugly! And IMO, all babies ARE cute! 🙂

What a cutie-pie!

Philly & Holly are obviously the same person, based on their negativity and their tenuous grasp of English grammar and punctuation. It’s so sad when someone is so unhappy with their own life that they need to be bitter about those who are happy.

So had she named him Kyle Jr that would have been ok but because it’s the woman’s name y’all are in an uproar?!?!? Makes zero sense to me…
