The actress and her daughters were intimidated by the media, so she included a lengthy statement with the photos pleading for them to leave her alone. She penned, “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.”

She added, ” Thanks to everyone else for all the love and respect and for continuing to unfollow accounts and publications that share photos of children. You have all the power against them.” She signed off by writing, “And thank you to the media who have a “No Kids Policy”. You all make all the difference. Much love!”

Blake Lively appears beautiful in the pictures while flaunting her growing baby belly. Her husband Ryan Reynolds, sister Robyn Lively, and friend and singer Taylor Swift are also visible in the photos.

Robyn Lively, her sister, commented on the post shortly after it was uploaded “Makes me angry you have to share such private photos to try and regain your privacy… I love you and I hope these A-holes back off.”

Gigi Hadid wrote, “U da best B !” while a fan wrote, “I’m so sorry. Proud of you for owning your power and protecting your personal life. Cheers to a party of 6- it’s so amazing and crazy and fun!”

The Gossip Girl star made headlines when she showed off her burgeoning baby bump at the Forbes Power Women’s Summit while wearing a gold sequin outfit.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds married in 2012 and have three daughters: James, 7, Inez, 5, and Betty, 2.
