Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have announced today that they are boycotting media companies that pay for paparazzi photographs of celebrity kids.

In a series of Tweets laid out this morning, the couple is claiming that the clamor for photographs of celebrity kids are harming the children, damaging them when they grow up. Bell specifically pointed out the inherent creepiness of celebrity kids that are being photographed in the park.

Bell and Shepard recently gave birth to a baby girl back in March of 2013 and have been adamant in keeping her away from the prying eye of celebrity magazines. Paparazzi first snapped pictures of baby Lincoln last summer, which has led to the boycott.

At least the law is on Bell and Shepard's side. Back in September, California made it illegal to photograph children "in a harassing manner" without the consent of the parents, according to the Associated Press.
