Social media is terrible for grown adults and can be incredibly harmful. Hence, the new parents have encouraged the paparazzi to not take pictures of their baby daughter because they hope to keep her away from the public eye.

“Hi, Thank you for all the love that you have given us for all these years. We are happy to celebrate this momentous occasion with you. As parents, we have a simple request to make to you. We want to protect the privacy of our child and we need your help and support,” the couple wrote in a note to the paparazzi.

“While we will always ensure that you get all the content you need featuring us, we would request you to kindly not take or carry any content that has our child. We know that you will understand where we are coming from and we thank you for the same,” they added.

Now, the beloved celebrity couple made their first public appearance since the birth of their baby outside a clinic in Mumbai’s Khar suburb.

Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli gladly posed for the camera and also thanked the paparazzi for respecting their wishes and not invading their daughter’s privacy by publishing her pictures or clicking them.
