By Melissa Lee

With living in a world absolutely obsessed with pop culture and celebrities, you can only wonder — what does the media love more than stars? The answer to that is unsurprising and comes in the form of little ones… celebrity families! Not only does our society idolize celebs, but we also have a fascination with famous families like the Kardashians. This obsession has caused celebrity parents to make the executive decision to keep their children out of the spotlight — and we can’t exactly blame them!

Check out these celebrity parents and their kids, who have managed to stay out of the limelight!

1. Sandra Bullock: Bullock adopted two children, Louis Bardo in 2010, and Laila in 2015. Although the paparazzi are always dying to catch candids of the single mom with her kids, Bullock has expressed her need for privacy on multiple occasions. “Most foster children are in foster care because they were taken from their birth homes under tragic circumstances,” she says. “The last thing I wanted was to bring more harm to her because of the nature of my job.”

2. Adele: Adele and husband Simon Konecki had their son in October 2012, and have kept him out of the spotlight to the best of their abilities. “We need to have some privacy,” Adele explained. “I think it’s really hard being a famous person’s child.” The couple even went as far as suing paparazzi in 2013 for taking photos of their son on a private family outing.

3. Jennifer GarnerWhen it comes to this celeb mom, her main concern was how aggressive the paparazzi were toward her three kids, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel. She says that her kids were constantly uncomfortable with the paparazzi, and didn’t want them to know what they looked like. “They don’t want this at all, and I don’t want it for them,” Garner said.

4. Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes: These celebrity parents are notorious for keeping things under wraps. In fact, the majority of their six-year long relationship has been extremely private! The couple have two daughters together, Esmeralda and Amada. “I find the media’s ‘bump watch’ obsession to be both intrusive and stressful,” says Mendes. “So I made the decision to eject myself from it completely.”

5. Tyra Banks: Tyra welcomed her son, York, into the world just last year, and has made a great effort to keep his life relatively low-key. “I don’t think that my son has ever asked to be seen, so I’m very, very conservative when it comes to showing him,” said Banks.
