Earlier this week, Blake Lively wowed fans with the news that she is expecting her fourth child.

The Gossip Girl star proudly showed off her baby bump while walking the red carpet at the Forbes Power Women's Summit on Thursday (September 15).

It didn't take long for news of her pregnancy to spread around the world, and for fans to shower the 35-year-old with messages of congratulations.

However, it seems not all the attention Blake has received over the last few days has been welcomed by the actor and her Deadpool star husband Ryan Reynolds.

Yesterday (September 17), Blake took to Instagram to slam the paparazzi for waiting outside her house and harassing her in the wake of her pregnancy announcement, making it clear she would be revealing all information on her own terms.

"Here are photos of me pregnant in real life so the 11 guys waiting outside my home for a sighting will leave me alone," she wrote, alongside a carousel of snaps featuring her growing baby bump.

"You freak me and my kids out," she added, referring to the three children she and her husband already share - James, 7, Inez, 5, and Betty, 2.

After calling out invasive paparazzi, Blake also took the opportunity to thank her fans for their support - and for not endorsing media outlets that shared paparazzi pictures of children.

"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. And thank you to the media who have a 'No Kids Policy'. You all make all the difference," she wrote.

Blake's Instagram message is the first time she has explicitly referred to the newest addition to her family. On Thursday evening, she was deliberately coy about her baby bump. When quizzed on whether or not she was pregnant, the Age of Adeline star simply said: "I just like to create."

"Whether that's baking or storytelling or businesses or humans, I just really like creating," she added per E! News.

Congratulations once again to the couple!
