Kristen Bell - Kristen Bell Celebrates First Magazine And Blog To Ban Paparazzi Shots Of Celebrity Kids

New mums Kristen Bell, Malin Akerman and Jaime King are celebrating after the editors of a top magazine and a popular showbiz blog pledged to stop publishing paparazzi photos of celebrities' children.

The Veronica Mars actress and her husband Dax Shepard have been spearheading a new campaign calling for a boycott of tabloids which feature unapproved pictures of stars and their kids, in a bid to protect the youngsters from aggressive snappers.

The couple took its fight to U.S. Tv on Monday (24Feb14), when Bell admitted she had become a savage "mama bear" since giving birth to daughter Lincoln last year (13), and her fighting talk has already won her support from People magazine and JustJared.com.

On Tuesday (25Feb14), People's editorial director Jess Cagle published an open letter online, claiming he had already taken a stand against using paparazzi photos of stars' kids since taking on the role in January (14), and JustJared.com founder Jared Eng followed shortly afterwards by announcing his own #NoKidsPolicy rule, promising not to share unapproved snaps or videos of celebrities' kids who are not public figures themselves.

The news prompted Bell to publicly thank the pair via her Twitter.com page, writing, "i'll be proud do my next interview w/ (with) @peoplemag & I'm planning something special around #veronicamarsmovie w/ (with) @justjared ! #nokidspolicy".

The Watchmen star Akerman also tweeted her approval for Eng, adding, "Im so excited that @justjared is the First Blog to apply a #Nokidspolicy! His site is a great place for Ent (entertainment) news, now w/ (with) No More pedorazzi (sic)!", while King tweets, "So Proud of @JaredEng #Brave #Ourkidsthanku (sic)".

Jenna Dewan Tatum, who is mother to nine-month-old baby girl Everly, and actresses Ashley Tisdale and Jessica Szohr have also tweeted their support for the move.

The paparazzi boycott picked up speed last year (13) after Hollywood mums Halle Berry and Jennifer Garner joined forces to fight for new legislation to protect the kids of stars. Their successful campaign led to new laws that restrict what photographers can do around children and how close they can get.
