New mom Hilary Duff is tired of the paparazzi who not only follow her every move, but also photograph her young son.
The 25-year-old recently spoke with "omg! Insider" about life as a celebrity mother. The blonde beauty, who gave birth to son Luca last March, opened up about the difficulties of being hounded by shutterbugs every time she steps outside her house.
"It's hard having a baby and having paparazzi follow you all around all the time," Duff said. "I haven't had to explain it to my son yet, what's going on. For the most part they respect me and they respect my space, but it's tough to always be photographed."
She has also aired her frustrations on Twitter.
Paparazzi at the park is WRONG! ALL kids should be able to play and not feel different than the others because weirdos r snapping pictures!

During an interview with The Huffington Post earlier this month, Duff said she and husband Mike Comrie aren't sure how they will explain the paparazzi to their son just yet.
"It's tough because people take our picture every day; there's paparazzi outside our house every day," she said. "And he's too young to know what's going on but when he is old enough it's going to be unfair for him to feel he's being treated than all the other kids and taking his picture ... That's going to be really hard for [me and my husband]. Other people have figured it out and handled it gracefully. We'll see when we get there."
The "True: An Elixir Novel" author is not the only famous mother to get angry over the invasion of privacy.
Drew Barrymore told Oprah Winfrey she "cried for two months straight" worrying about how to protect her daughter, Olive, who she gave birth to last September, from public scrutiny. Halle Berry, who has screamed at paps for photographing her daughter, Nahla, has said she wants to reach out to President Obama in an attempt to get privacy laws passed in the U.S.
And back in 2010, the very-private Julia Roberts even got into a scuffle with a paparazzo who was trying to get photos of her family.
