AceShowbiz - Blake Lively needs more privacy amid her pregnancy. The star doesn't need the unwarranted attention from paparazzi, who are desperate for a glimpse of the pregnant actress, and has voluntarily dropped her maternity pics to stave them off.
The "Gossip Girl" alum made use of her Instagram account on Saturday, September 17 to call out the prying shutterbugs who have been staking out her house. "Here are photos of me pregnant in real life so the 11 guys waiting outside my home for a [unicorn emoji] sighting will leave me alone," she captioned the snaps, adding, "You freak me and my kids out."
The mother of three appreciated those who respect her decision to keep her children out of the spotlight. "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," she continued to write. "And thank you to the media who have a 'No Kids Policy'. You all make all the difference [praying hands] [black heart]. Much love! Xxb."
Being included in the post are pictures of Blake showing off her baby bump in a red bikini. There are some photos of her and her husband Ryan Reynolds as well as one of her posing in pink bikini alongside longtime pal Taylor Swift.
Blake revealed she's pregnant with her fourth child with Ryan last week. She debuted her baby bump on the red carpet at the 10th annual Forbes Power Women's Summit on Thursday, September 15. The 35-year-old star glammed up in a sequined long-sleeved mini dress for the event.
A source told PEOPLE that the news also came as a surprise to her friends. "Even her friends were surprised that she was pregnant again," the source said. "She kept it very quiet."
Blake and Ryan, who married on September 9, 2012 at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, are already parents to daughters James, 7, Inez, 5, and Betty, 2.
