Some celebrities love to show off their wonderful children on social media, reality TV shows, and at red carpet events. While no one can be blamed for taking pride in their kids, other parents take a different route. More and more celebs are choosing to hide their children from the limelight as much as possible, protecting their privacy and their right to choose whether or not they become public figures.
And perhaps none so publicly than Blake Lively, who most recently shared a set of candid pregnancy photos to undermine the paparazzi waiting outside her house and scaring her children. The fed-up star posted numerous shots of her growing bump Instagram and wrote in the caption, "Here are photos of me pregnant in real life so the 11 guys waiting outside my home for a [unicorn] sighting will leave me alone. You freak me and my kids out.
She continued, "Thanks to everyone else for all the love and respect and for continuing to unfollow accounts and publications who share photos of children. You have all the power against them. And thank you to the media who have a 'No Kids Policy'. You all make all the difference."
Many famous parents have strong opinions on the subject and aren't afraid to condemn media outlets that post photos of their young children without consent. Click through the gallery to see what they and other celebrities have to say on the matter.
