Blake Lively decided that if anyone would reveal her pregnancy photographs, it would be her.
Over the weekend, the actress posted pictures of her baby bulge on her verified Instagram account.
“You scare me and my kids,” wrote the post.
Lively and Ryan Reynolds are expecting their fourth child.
She expressed her gratitude to "everyone else for all of their love and respect, as well as for continuing to monitor and remove publications that share photographs of children."
"You have complete authority over them," she wrote. "And thank you to the media for enforcing a "No Kids Policy." "It's all because of you."
The star of "Gossip Girl" announced her pregnancy last week on the red carpet at the tenth annual Forbes Power Women's Summit in New York City.
Blake Lively and her daughter James have been confirmed as twins.
Reynolds and Inez wed at Boone Hall, a former plantation in South Carolina, in 2012. Their first daughter, James, was born in 2014, and their second, Inez, in 2016. In 2019, they announced their third kid, Betty, in a tweet against Canada's environmental policy.
