19 Sep – After announcing that they are expecting their fourth child, Blake Lively decided to share multiple photos on social media of her in all states of pregnancy as a way to kick all the paparazzi away from her home.
On 18 September, the actress posted the photos on Instagram, from her looking slightly pregnant in her red bathing suit, one of her with sister Robyn Lively, a photo of her being heavily pregnant alongside best friend Taylor Swift, and one that she took while lying in bed.
One particular photo also attracted attention, that is of her, seemingly to be in her early pregnancy, alongside husband Ryan Reynolds, who was donning one of his Deadpool costumes.
She wrote, "Here are photos of me pregnant in real life so the 11 guys waiting outside my home for a sighting will leave me alone. You freak me and my kids out."
"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. Much love!"
The actress, whose pregnancy was revealed when she appeared at the 10th Annual Forbes Power Women's Summit last week, is mother to three daughters with Reynolds - James, 7, Inez, 5, and Betty, 2.
