Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard want the paparazzi to know that their infant daughter is off-limits. 

"We had always had an agreement that when this little thing came into the world, all bets were off, no pictures would happen," Bell told TODAY Friday in an exclusive interview. "We now have a duty as parents to protect this little one."

The celebrity couple on Monday urged their followers on Twitter to boycott magazines that publish photos of the children of celebrities, with Shepard saying that kids "shouldn't be punished for who their parents are."

"We're not saying that we can't be newsworthy. We're saying that our child is not newsworthy," Bell said. "We chose to be the entertainers, so we never post -- other than the birth announcement -- we've posted nothing about her and we don't plan to."

I've read a bit of debate about this online.  Some saying children of celebrities should be 100% off limits, while others say that stars should expect the attention given their line of work.  What do you think?
