Hollywood A-lister Blake Lively is expecting baby number four with her husband Ryan Reynolds. The couple has been famously private when it comes to their children and don't post photos of them on social media. Blake shared some images of her pregnancy and sent a clear message to the paparazzi who won't leave her alone.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds share three daughters, James, Inez, and Betty. The star couple is no stranger to being chased by the paparazzi, as they're some of the most recognizable people on the planet. However, Blake isn't happy about the paparazzi camped outside her home (understandably), so she sent a very clear message to the photographers who simply won't leave her alone.

Blake has always been outspoken about how much she loves motherhood. In fact, she says becoming a mom has made her feel more content in her own skin. “Once I had children, that just became even more profound because my time was even more precious, but also I think having children for me made me feel so much more in my skin,” she said in a Forbes interview. “I never felt more myself or at ease in my own body or more confident—not to say that there aren't a bevy of insecurities coming at me a million times a day, but I just feel incredibly settled." 

She and Ryan have always planned on having a big family, and she debuted her baby belly on the red carpet recently, confirming that she is pregnant with their fourth child. Throughout all her pregnancies, Blake has maintained her fashion sense and experimented with all kinds of maternity looks.

She shared a series of photos on her Instagram on Sunday, giving a glimpse of what this pregnancy has been like for her lately. The first photo is of Blake in a red one-piece swimsuit with her hair pulled back. Other photos include her mom, Ryan, and Taylor Swift. In the caption, she wrote about why she decided to share these pictures.

"Here are photos of me pregnant in real life so the 11 guys waiting outside my home for a 🦄 sighting will leave me alone," she wrote. "You freak me and my kids out."

Blake has always been protective of her children, especially around the paparazzi, and she's also been critical of media publications that publish pictures of children without parents' consent.

"Thanks to everyone else for all the love and respect and for continuing to unfollow accounts and publications who share photos of children," she wrote. "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."
