The paparazzi can be frustrating for a lot of celebrities, especially those who are expecting or already have children. Kristen Bell is one of the many celebrity parents who are against the paparazzi photographing their children.
She and her husband Dax Shepard even believe there should be a law that protects children or minors from the paparazzi.
Kristen and Dax welcomed their daughter Lincoln into their lives in 2013 and are expecting another child together.
Earlier this year Kristen and Dax established the No Child Policy and urged other celebrity parents to stop doing interviews with media outlets that buy photos of their children from the paparazzi and publish them. Many celebrities joined up with them and agree with the policy.
Kristen said that establishing the policy has helped her feel better about her children’s privacy and has helped make her second pregnancy a little bit more easier.
“The response has been so overwhelming that it’s really almost a moral stance that the consumer demanded their publications take,” Bell told the Associated Press in an interview. “We’re all consuming healthier media now.”

She also said that she thinks the policy is helping others and many of her celebrity friends have told her that they are not photographed with their children as often as they once were.
“I feel a lot safer because I’m not followed at all now,” Bell said. “It makes me feel like we all rallied and did something — the good people that were on the side of responsible parenting and passionate about child welfare spoke up and made a difference, and that is a really invigorating feeling.”
Kristen and Dax hope that the paparazzi will think about what they are doing before they photograph innocent children who do not ask or agree to be on the covers of magazines or a part of other types of media. She hopes that the policy will help her children and the children of other celebrities live a normal life.
