Blake Lively shares pregnancy photos and takes the power from the paparazzi

IN a move against the paparazzi “swarming around her house,” actress Blake Lively shared photos of herself on social media, immediately devaluing any images the paparazzi might have taken.

The A simple favor The star revealed late last week that she was expecting her fourth child with husband Ryan Reynolds, and on Saturday she took to Instagram to post photos from private celebrations of her pregnancy, which included photos of her belly of pregnant woman exposed, as well as photos with loved ones those including her husband Reynolds, her close friend and collaborator Taylor Swift and her sister Robyn Lively.

The Gossip Girl alum captioned the post: “Here are some pictures of me pregnant in real life so the 11 guys waiting outside my house for a [unicorn] observation will leave me alone. You scare me and my children.

This isn’t the first time the actress has fired on the paparazzi, as she’s come out blunt about her members who aren’t shy about photographing celebrity kids.

She mentioned this fact in her Instagram post, adding, “Thank you to everyone else for all the love and respect and for continuing to unfollow accounts and posts that share photos of children. You have all the power against them.

Lively also thanked the media who have a “child-free policy.”

It has been an ongoing battle for Lively, who in 2016 said it was unfair to photograph children “who are unaware of the reasons for the attention”.

The actress is not the only one to oppose it.

Last year, model Gigi Hadid posted an open letter on social media about it.

Captioned “A letter from a mom,” Hadid asked the paparazzi to respect the privacy of her and Zayn Malik’s then 10-month-old daughter by blurring out the baby’s face in the photos.

“Our wish is that she can choose how to share herself with the world when she comes of age,” the model wrote, “and that she can live as normal a childhood as possible, without worrying about a public image that she didn’t choose.”
