Some fans of Blake Lively had a dream come true when they received a message from the actress – but it wasn’t exactly under pleasant circumstances.

Writing from her own account, Blake left comments on some Instagram fan accounts requesting they take down a photo they’d posted of her eldest daughter with Ryan Reynolds, James, three. The picture was taken by a paparazzi and showed Blake and James arriving at Martha Stewart’s house for a private event, Page Six reported.

“Thank you for your support but please remove this photo right away. It was taken without my knowledge or consent by a man hiding. Thank you!!!!” Blake wrote.

Page Six also reports Blake made formal requests of several major magazines and news websites that had run the paparazzi shots. A rep for Blake said:

“We appreciate all magazines, websites and publications who are standing by protecting the privacy of children and vowing to cut off the supply chain to help end the stalking of children.”

Blake and Ryan are also parents to younger daughter Ines, one.
