Jensen Karp & Danielle Fishel Karp's Son: Adler
Fishel’s son Adler (pictured here with former Boy Meets World castmate Ben Savage) was born on June 24, 2019, four weeks earlier than expected. The new mom decided that she would not be posting photos of her son’s face, explaining her decision in a lengthy Instagram post.
She shared, “Currently, @jensenkarp and I have chosen to keep Adler’s face off our social media pages. We are two people who made a conscious choice to be in the public eye and share what would normally be private moments with the public. Adler isn’t capable of making that choice for himself and until he is, we’ve decided to shield him from places where strangers can comment on him.”
Fishel expressed that it was a difficult decision for the couple, because, “I wanna show you my baby every day. He’s cuter than this 👼 but I worry about a couple things. 1. His safety. There are weirdos out there. Enough said. 2. Putting pictures and facts about him onto the internet that he doesn’t have any say in. I’d like for him to be able to curate his own footprint on the internet in the future without being mortified we posted about his his fear of swimming or his first crush.”
Diane Kruger & Norman Reedus' Daughter
In a 2019 interview with PEOPLE, Kruger said that she chooses to keep her daughter’s name and face private for several reasons.
“Well first and above all, it’s safety,” Kruger said. “We have The Walking Dead empire which has a lot of very intense fandomship that comes with it.”
Elaborating about the challenges that come with admirers of her boyfriend’s zombie series, Kruger added, “We had a couple [of] incidences before her arrival that were not so fun to deal with and so my main concern’s her safety.”
“And secondly, she is an innocent, young, vulnerable baby and I think I just don’t understand why America doesn’t have better laws for children,” she continued.
Still, she has shared a few particularly sweet father-daughter moments, like this one in August 2019.

Behati Prinsloo & Adam Levine's Kids: Dusty Rose and Gio Grace
When babies attack! Prinsloo posted this rare photo of both Dusty and Gio to Instagram in August 2019, getting real about motherhood in the caption. “Here’s to the sleepless nights, bleeding nipples, crying, laughing, the highest of highs and lowest of lows and everything in between, i won’t change a single thing, being mom to Dusty and Gio keeps me strong, motivated and empowered,” the Victoria’s Secret model wrote.
Britney Spears' Boys with Kevin Federline: Preston and Jayden
In August 2019, Spears shared a photo of her sweet family at Disneyland. In case you were wondering why we don’t see Preston, 13, and Jayden, 12, too often: “My boys are older now, so they don’t like their picture taken ever,” Brit explained in her caption. It looks like they made an exception for their mom!
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds' Kids: James and Inez
Lively and Reynolds also keep most photos of their kids to themselves, but it was a family affair when Ryan Reynolds was given his star on the Walk of Fame.
James, 4, and Baby Inez, 2, are going to be joined by a baby brother or sister soon, as Lively is expecting her third child. Here’s a photo of the oh-so-adorable Inez with her mom in late 2016.
Katie Holmes & Tom Cruise's Daughter: Suri
Suri is growing up so fast (and is her mom’s twin!). She’s 13 years old, which means that she is officially a teenager, but her famous parents have done a pretty great job keeping her out of the spotlight.
Megan Fox & Brian Austin Green's Kids: Bodhi Ransom, Noah Shannon and Journey River
Noah, 6, Bodhi, 5, and Journey, 3, don’t often show up on their mom’s Instagram, but when they do it’s for adorable snaps like this.
Halle Berry's Kids: Nahla and Maceo
Berry is creative when it comes to posting photos of her children, only posting their backs or finding poses that cover their faces.
Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard's Kids: Delta and Lincoln
Bell and Shepard have always believed in keeping their children out of the public eye.
Every so often, Bell will post a photo of her kids, but either with their backs turned, like this photo of Delta …
Or with their faces obscured, this time with the use of an emoji.
However, Bell couldn’t resist showing the world what a great dad her husband, Shepard, is on Father’s Day.
We wouldn’t be able to resist either! This cuteness must be shared!
Mindy Kaling's Daughter: Katherine
Kaling welcomed her daughter, Katherine, into the world in 2017, but does not share many photos of the 1-year-old. When she does, Katherine’s face is not in the photo, as is the custom with many celebrity moms and dads.
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban's Daughters: Faith Margaret and Sunday Rose
Kidman shared this photo of her daughters, Faith Margaret and Sunday Rose, giving her some serious snuggles. She captioned the sweet snap, “I am nothing without the love of my family ❤️”
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin's Kids: Apple and Moses
The Goop founder rarely posts photos of her kids, Apple and Moses, who are already teenagers, but she shared this photo on Mother’s Day saying, “Thank you to my two beauties for the best morning, and for my entire life.”
Apple in particular is not featured heavily on her mom’s Instagram, mostly because she insists on getting some serious approval over the photos before her mom can post.
