The mum-to-be slammed photographers for camping outside her home trying to snap a photo of her baby bump after she revealed last week that she’s pregnant again.

Sharing a slew of personal family photos from the first few months of her pregnancy, the actress didn’t hold back in her fiery caption.

“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. You freak me and my kids out,” she wrote.

“Thanks to everyone else 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.”

Blake continued: “And thank you to the media who have a ‘No Kids Policy’. You all make all the difference. Much love!”

It’s not the first time a celebrity mum has hit out at paparazzi for trying to steal a glimpse of her pregnant belly or her children to sell to the press.

Meghan Markle previously sued a photographer for hiding in the bushes in Canada to get covert photos of her and her young son with Prince Harry, Archie.

But Blake’s bold message to the photographers camping outside her home wasn’t the only part of her post that had fans in a frenzy.

In amongst the photos of her looking pregnant and glowing with husband Ryan, fans spotted another famous face.

Taylor Swift appeared with her arms wrapped around Blake, who posed with her belly out in a girly pink bikini as she cuddled up to the singer.

The two women have been friends for years and Taylor even included Blake and Ryan’s children’s names in a song off her Folklore album in 2020.

That little detail, plus the new photo Blake posted with the songstress, had given rise to the theory Taylor will reveal Blake’s unborn child’s name on her next album, Midnights, set for release in October.

Blake revealed she and Ryan, who already share James, seven, Inez, five, and Betty, two, were expecting their fourth child last week when she showed off her baby bump at the 10th Annual Forbes Power Women’s Summit.

The 35-year-old joked of her surprise baby news: “I just like to create. Whether that’s baking or storytelling or businesses or humans, I just really like creating.”
