Actress Kristen Bell has revealed her anti-paparazzi stance when it comes to her children has finally worked.

The Veronica Mars star, who is pregnant with her second child with husband Dax Sheperd, began a campaign earlier this year to forbid paparazzi from photographing celebrities' children.

She was supported by Olivia Wilde, Ali Larter and Alyssa Milano and has said now that she and her children are rarely, if ever, snapped out and about.

The anti-pap movement also appealed to tabloids not to print any images of children without the permission of their parents.

"I feel a lot safer because I'm not followed at all now," she told the Associate Press. "It makes me feel like we all rallied and did something — the good people that were on the side of responsible parenting and passionate about child welfare spoke up and made a difference, and that is a really invigorating feeling."

"The response has been so overwhelming that it's really almost a moral stance that the consumer demanded their publications take. We're all consuming healthier media now."

Meanwhile, the 34-year-old said her second pregnancy is much easier this time around.

When asked how she's feeling, she said: "Really easy, thank God. I've had a lot of friends who have had rough pregnancies and I'm really, really thankful. People are affected differently by hormones, we're all different."
