Looks like Blake Lively may have beaten the paparazzi at their own game.
“The Simple Favor” actress over the weekend flooded Instagram with nearly a dozen photos of her baby bump. She and husband Ryan Reynolds are expecting a fourth child.
The “Gossip Girl” alum chose to take control of the narrative and released a series of private photos.
In one image, Reynolds touches her stomach as the couple sits poolside. Another photo has Lively flaunting her belly in a red one-piece bathing suit.
“Here are photos of me pregnant in real life so the 11 guys waiting outside my home for a [unicorn] sighting will leave me alone,” the 45-year-old actress and philanthropist captioned.
Lively also gave a shoutout to “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.”
The People’s Choice Award-winner’s pal, Taylor Swift, is also seen posing with her in another shot.
One of the slideshow images show Lively posing alongside Reynolds, who is wearing his “Deadpool 2″ outfit. The image was taken when she was carrying the couple’s 5-year-old daughter, Inez.
The couple, who wed in 2012, are also parents of daughters James, 7, and 2-year-old Betty.
