Sophie Turner Hits Out At Paparazzi Taking Pictures Of Her Daughter

·2-min read

Sophie Turner has firmly condemned paparazzi photographers who photographed her baby daughter without her permission.

On Wednesday (May 13), Turner reportedly recorded a video to her Instagram Stories, which has since been deleted.

In the video, in which the former Game of Thrones star is faintly visible as she records in a dark room, Turner makes her anger and insult known after an alleged incident involving paparazzi.

In the video, which has since been shared to Twitter, the 25-year-old says: 'I just woke up. I guess yesterday, some paparazzi managed to get a picture of my daughter and I and I just want to say that the reason that I've been no posting pictures of my daughter and making sure we can paparazzi at all costs is because I explicitly do not want those photos out there.

'She is my daughter, she did not ask for this life to be photographed.

The British actor continued to say it was 'f***ing creepy' that 'grown old men' are taking pictures of her and her daughter.

'I'm sickened and I'm disgusted and I'm respectfully asking everyone to stop following us around and stop taking pictures of my daughter and especially, printing them. It's disgusting and you do not have my permission,' she added.

The couple have protected their daughter's privacy from the start of Turner's pregnancy, when neither Turner nor her husband Joe Jonas ever confirmed they were expecting a child. After giving a brief statement when their daughter was born, the couple have provided no photographs of their daughter.

Turner has since made a few comments on her social media about pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood, and Jonas recently shared a photo of his then-pregnant wife to celebrate Mother's Day in the US on May 9.

The couple have made it abundantly clear they will not be introducing their daughter into the public eye despite their celebrity status which, of course, is completely their right and is on everybody else to respect.
