The former "Office" star, whose wife Emily Blunt gave birth to their first daughter on Feb. 16, joined the growing chorus of celebrities who want to control how pictures of their children are obtained and distributed.

Actress Kristen Bell and husband Dax Shepard led the charge earlier this year toward getting news organizations to boycott the use of paparazzi photos of celebrity children. TODAY made the pledge not to use the images any longer, as did E!, People magazine and the website Just Jared, among others.

Actresses Jennifer Garner and Halle Berry have also fought against photographers who they say are impacting the lives of their children through aggressive behavior in the pursuit of money-making images.

On Instagram, where many stars share personal images of their children, actress Alyssa Milano, for example, made the point about whose photos she'd prefer we enjoy when it comes to her son, Milo.

"Please don't click on links of paparazzi pictures of my child," Milano wrote. "Help me take a stand. Here is a new picture of him from my personal collection."
