For years, Julia Morris has had a staunch rule when it comes to her children and social media.
Since welcoming her two daughters – Ruby, who was born in 2006 and Sophie, who was born in 2008 – into the world, the comedian and actress has remained committed to keeping photos of her children off social media.

Speaking to Mamamia ahead of the release of the 2020 season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, Morris explained why you won’t see any photos of her two children on her Instagram page.
“I just feel like my children’s privacy is not mine to sell or give away,” the mum-of-two explained.
“Any other parents making that decision, that is completely up to them and I respect that. But I don’t want anyone approaching my children when I’m not around because they know their faces,” she added.
“I think it comes under a really weird umbrella of ‘Stranger Danger’ when someone knows a child, knows what they look like, knows where to find them, knows what school they go to.
“It’s an awful lot of information to put out there about the things most precious to you.”
Although Morris is committed to keeping her kids off social media for now, it’s not always easy.
“When things are really crazy, cute, amazing, funny or whatever, it’s hard not to post them and share them. So it’s taken some real effort on my part,” the actress said.
“It’s hard to talk about it without disrespecting other people’s opinions – and I don’t want to do that – but I can’t help but think that I would be posting [photos of my kids] as part of my ego. Like look at these humans I created. Look at this funny thing that they did. I kind of think that would be the motivation for me posting so that’s why I don’t.”
