As if being a dad and learning to change pooey nappies when you're also a popstar wasn't quite enough to deal with, Louis Tomlinson has something else to worry about and that's the paparazzi following his baby son Freddie around.

Yep, Luigi has released a statement via his official rep asking the paps to back off and respect Freddie's privacy as he's majorly concerned that the way they follow him around trying to get pics of him is seriously going to affect his right to a "normal, protected and private childhood."

Ever since Freddie dropped out of mum Briana Jungwirth's womb like a piece of bread out of a toaster (we imagine, we weren't there to see it), the world has been pretty darn interested in every detail of his life.

While Louis, Briana and their families have chosen to share some pics of Freddie, they are unhappy with the way photographers follow them around trying to get sneaky pics. 

According to People, who have obtained a statement from Louis' rep on the matter, this is even more prudent during the custody agreement he and Briana are apparently currently seeking to decide.

Even worse, the paparazzi attention is making it hard for Louis to have visitation time with Freddie and making it difficult for whoever is looking after Freddie to go about their business with any degree of privacy.

In the statement, the rep says that the levels of paparazzi attention currently on Freddie pose security issues and are "intolerable and completely unjustifiable."

"Louis appreciates, respects and values his relationship with the media and we hope he and his son are afforded the same respect on this matter," Louis' rep adds. 

Sounds like a fair and polite request, don't you reckon? Let us know with a tweet to @Sugarscape already.
