Ever since her baby bump started peeking out from under her designer clothes, Kim Kardashian has been getting near-constant criticism of her maternity style and weight gain.

But lately, celebrities (including a few moms and moms-to-be!) are coming to the reality star’s defense. Here’s what they had to say:

Let’s all be kind to every woman out there who is expecting … it shouldn’t be about how much weight someone has gained, their fashion etc … it’s a beautiful amazing moment in time and not about vanity! … just try to enjoy the process! Not a competition.” — Jenna Dewan-Tatum

It is disgusting and despicable” the way that certain media constantly harass the pregnant Kim Kardashian … a public bullying and attacking of a pregnant woman because of her growing shape is just lower than low … 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!!” — Helena Christensen

I think that women should support each other, especially through pregnancy. It’s a difficult time and I think Kim Kardashian looks absolutely beautiful. And we’re supposed to gain weight when we’re pregnant — that’s how God intended it.” — Gwyneth Paltrow

She’s just so happy to be pregnant and to be moving on to a different time in her life. I love that she has embraced it and that she is still wearing whatever she wants to wear. I’m kind of jealous. I like it.” — Molly Sims

Our bodies are never public property under any circumstance. It’s wrong, and people in the street who feel the right to touch a pregnant woman’s belly ought to be arrested for harassment. Our bodies belong to us, and if we don’t invite touching, we shouldn’t tolerate it. If our bodies are treated as ornaments instead of instruments, that’s because we are rebelling because it’s an effort to distract us. So don’t be distracted. Why bother getting caught up in that?” — Gloria Steinem

I am so excited for her as a young mom, and I keep telling her … relax and enjoy it. Gain the weight — who cares? — I can get you back better than ever. I think [the criticism is] ridiculous. I think it’s horrible. It’s sad for us as human beings. Who does that?” — Tracy Anderson, personal trainer to the stars

“I think women being pregnant should just be left alone. As a woman who went through that, you’re already feeling like something foreign took over your body. And to have everybody commenting on it, that’s tough. Let her wear what she wants. She’s so beautiful — with a face like that, who cares what your body’s doing?” — Sara Blakely, founder of Spanx
