WhatsApp Updates Automatic Download

Hi!
I'm new on this awesome forum, so I hope to post the thread in the right section.

I downloaded WhatsApp from the official site, not from Play Store. And I also disabled the option in the Play Store to prevent automatic updates of all apps.
Btw, whenever WhatsApp released an update, the .apk file is downloading automatically in "WhatsApp" folder on my device.
So everytime I open WhatsApp it keeps asking me to update until I tap "Ok".
Now my question is:
Is there a way to avoid WhatsApp from downloading these damn updates automatically?
Thanks for help.
