will not stand for the paparazzi who “stalk” her children.

On Friday, July 16, the Gossip Girl alum rose to share issues she had with photos posted by The Daily Mail Australia. Although in the photos, Lively smiles and waves at the cameras, she made it clear that these photos — which she called “deceptive” — don’t tell the whole story.

The actress, who shares three children with her husband, wrote in the comment section of the outlet’s post: “My kids were stalked by a man all day long. Jump out. Then hide. A stranger on the street talked to them because it was so disturbing for her to see.”

Lively called the ordeal “frightening” and pleaded with the outlet to “listen to your followers” who “understand that it’s dark and disturbing that you pay people to stalk children.”

“Please stop paying grown men to hide and hunt children,” she insisted. “There are plenty of photos you could have published without the kids. Please delete. Come on. Go with the times.”

Lively and Reynolds keep their family life as private as possible. In fact, they didn’t for two months, a girl named Betty.

In 2016 Lively opened for: about how her family is the thing she’s “most protective of” and that she feels “most exposed” when exploited.

The Age of Adaline star – who had just welcomed her first daughter James at the time – explained about the paparazzi: “I’d rather have nothing to do with it at all, but we knew the lifestyle we were getting into, and although it’s hard… it’s different if it’s our kid. [James] not had the opportunity to make up her mind about what she wants.”
