Actress Hilary Duff is nine months pregnant with her second child, but that doesn’t stop paparazzi from regularly following the expectant mom.

In June, Duff announced her pregnancy with boyfriend Matthew Koma. The two are expecting a baby girl together, joining the mom’s 6-year-old child from a previous relationship, Luca.

Now that it’s nearly time for the bundle of joy to arrive, the actress is speaking out about the alleged harassment she faces from Hollywood photographers.

In a video posted to Instagram this week, Duff pulls up to a paparazzo and begs him to leave her alone after he follows her on errands and to her son’s soccer game.

She says in the clip:

“I’m nine months pregnant and I have the flu, and I’ve asked you once to leave me alone. Can you stop taking my picture? You’re like hunting me down … I feel very uncomfortable. Please leave a pregnant woman alone.”

The photographer appears to drive away after complaining he “wasted” his morning and got no pictures.

In the caption, Duff said that the man was stalking her. She wrote:

This guy has been at my sons soccer game this morning then followed me to my sisters house and was basically parked in her drive way to get photos. Followed me to run errands. I politely asked him to let me be and he continues to follow and stalk me down like pray for hours now. This is not ok. I am 9 months pregnant. When people say that’s what you get for signing up to be a celebrity it honestly makes me sick. This is every day of every month and it’s simply not ok. If a non “celeb”(I’m sorry to use that word) was dealing with this the law would be involved.

Many Instagram users commented that the expectant mom should get “security” to help fend off paparazzi.

It’s unclear if she plans to take any measures to reduce the alleged harassment.
