If you were a mega-famous mama, would you post your children’s photos on social media? Actress Kristen Bell and her husband Dax Shepard have decided to keep their two daughters’ faces off of their feeds.
The Good Place star will sometimes share adorable family snapshots to her Instagram page, but is always sure to hide her girls’, Lincoln, 7, and Delta, 5, faces.
Kristen Bell Says No To Sharing Her Daughters’ Faces on Instagram
“My feeling is that I chose a career in the public eye. I chose to be quoted, I chose to have my picture taken,” Kristen shared with Romper. “I don’t know them yet. I don’t know if they will want that. So I really don’t have the right to choose for them.”
While she may be protective of sharing her children with the public, Bell loves nothing more than connecting with her fans. “Getting fan mail that says, ‘I was in a really dark time considering some really bad things, and I watched the way Veronica Mars handled problems and it gave me some strength’—that’s more meaningful to me than almost anything. I put that right up there with having kids. When I’m on my deathbed, that’s one of the things I’ll be thinking about.”
Bell was a strong advocate for the “No Kids Policy,” which is intended to protect celebrity children from being photographed by the paparazzi.
We have major respect for this mama drawing a boundary to protect her little ones!
