Jaime King: My Son Leo Thames ‘Is Very Animated Like I Am’

11/13/2015 at 11:55 PM ET

Jaime King knows it isn’t always easy for expectant moms to dress for two, which is why she teamed up with maternity apparel retailer, A Pea in the Pod, to create her own denim line.

“[A Pea in the Pod] is basically what I lived in during my pregnancy,” King, who welcomed her second son Leo Thames in July, tells PEOPLE. “And I really wanted to create a line, which was a very well-rounded line of denim for women.”

Says King of her LOVE, JAIME For Luxe Essentials Denim collection: “I didn’t want one woman to feel bad in the clothing that they wear so every single item that I designed, I wanted to make sure that it would be beautiful for every single body type. That was something that was really important to me.”

Another key detail for King was having each pair “go with many different types of styles.”

“Because maternity clothes are expensive … [and] it’s an investment, I wanted to make sure that whatever I was making would be something that would transcend through an entire pregnancy and also, beyond after the pregnancy,” she explains.

Jaime King on Regaining Her Body After Baby: I ‘Don’t Believe in the Word Diet’

09/14/2015 at 10:50 AM ET

Jaime King says she got back into shape after the birth of her second son Leo Thames earlier this summer with the help of an organic food delivery service — just don’t call it a diet.

The actress also credits her firstborn, 22-month-old son James Knight, with helping her shed the pregnancy pounds.

“I was chasing [him] around for my entire pregnancy and then chasing [him] around as soon as I had the baby,” King told PEOPLE at the Michael Kors Gold Fragrance launch party in New York City on Sunday.

While the mom of two also credits Ballet Beautiful and her organic delivery service Paleta for her post-baby body, she says her commitment to healthy eating doesn’t mean she’s dieting.

“I don’t believe in the word diet because I think the word dieting comes with judgment,” King, 36, says. “When I hear the word diet, I want to punch the word in the face because it tells people that you can’t have something. You should be able to have things that love and nourish your body.”

Jaime King‘s special relationship with her children is something she struggles to even put into words. That’s why she’s teamed up with Juno Lucina to create a physical manifestation of her family ties.

“The motivation was to create something that could represent the sacred bond between mother and child, which is indescribable with words,” King tells PEOPLE of her special Jaime King and Juno Lucina collection. “I wanted to find a way to express it through my creativity in the medium I know best: art.”

The collection — debuted exclusively on PEOPLE.com — features a pendant, pair of earrings and ring, all available in white, yellow and rose gold.

Jaime King: How We’re Choosing Our Second Child’s Name

07/16/2015 at 12:00 PM ET

Jaime King knows that it isn’t always easy finding the perfect fit when dressing for two.

“It’s very interesting. There’s not a lot of brands out there that have maternity clothes that make you still feel modern, sexy, beautiful, elegant — and the way that you want to feel — and also, really comfortable at the same time when you’re pregnant,” King, who announced her second pregnancy in February, tells PEOPLE.

But the expectant mama says that ever since she “became a pregnant lady with [her] first child,” son James Knight, she’s been a huge fan of one particular maternity apparel retailer: A Pea in the Pod. And now the mom-to-be is their official new brand ambassador.

“I really appreciated that they had some really wonderful brand collaborations [and] that the clothing themselves were something that I actually wanted to wear and that I felt good in,” King, who has linked up with the retailer for their fall 2015 campaign and new denim line, Luxe Essentials Denim, says.
