A-listers are known for their elaborate, jaw-dropping Halloween costumes, but it's their mini-me's outfits we look forward to the most.

Here is what celebrities, their babies and kids are wearing on the spookiest day of the year!

Gabrielle Union-Wade and her daughter 'Bring It On' 

Gabrielle Union's daughter Kaavia James is only 11 months old but she is cancelling her mama's iconic 2000 film Bring It On this Halloween.

Union's costume bears the name of her character's high school team in the classic team comedy, while Kaavia's is similar but emblazoned with the name Runza. That's not a fictional high school team, but a real restaurant chain in Union's home state, Nebraska.

The restaurant gifted Kaavia the outfit weeks ago and she's been sporting it on her mom's Instagram ever since.

Jessica Biel dressed up as Justin Timberlake 

Mrs. Justin Timberlake was in a bit of hot water earlier this month when Jimmy Fallon dug up an old 1999 clip in which she said she didn't know or own any NSYNC music, but that they were "cool, I guess." That's why this year she's going as JT himself, back when he had the blonde, crunchy curly hair and a love for shiny jumpsuits.

Stormi is dressing like Kylie this year

Stromi Webster looks so much like her mama, Kylie, but even more so when she's all dressed up like her mogul mom.

Stormi's halloween look is a replica of her mom's met ball look, right down to the lavender wig.

She looks adorable adorable and her mama can't get enough.

"My baby!!!!!!!! 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜 i cant handle this!!!!" she captioned Stormi's pics on Insta.

Ali Fedotowsky Manno 

The Malificent movie is in theatres now but a replica version is in Ali Manno's house as her daughter Molly has totally nailed the Angelina Jolie's look in time for Halloween.

"She picked her costume based off a billboard by our house - she's never seen Sleeping Beauty. I'm guessing she's just an Angelina Jolie fan. I mean, who isn't?" Manno wrote on Instagram.

The rest of the family followed Molly's lead and did the Sleeping Beauty theme, but it was pretty easy to put together, according to Manno.

"I'm pretty sure everything is 2 day shipping since most of it is from Amazon," she writes.

Pregnant Ashley Graham is Jessica Rabbit 

Ashley Graham is pregnant but that isn't stopping her from going all out this Halloween.

She committed to Jessica Rabbit in a red wig and even redder latex and looks as much like a cartoon bombshell as a human being can.


And let's not forget the celeb throwbacks from Halloweens past!

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel with son Silas as Lego heroes in 2018

If you thought super hero costumes were cool, you've never seen this. The Timberlake-Biel household won Halloween 2018 in their looks from the Lego Batman Movie. It's probably hard to sit down, but who needs to sit when you're trick-or-treating anyway?

Ayesha Curry and baby Canon channeling Snow White in 2018

Ayesha Curry's bob is so perfect for this costume, and baby Canon is such a cutie, who needs the other six dwarfs?

Mustard Mindy Kaling and her baby lion, Katherine in 2018

Nothing goes together like mustard and...a baby lion? Kaling and daughter Katherine didn't exactly have a theme going on, but with mom as a condiment and Katherine as the king of the beasts these two sure were cute.

Lauren Conrad and son Liam reacting The Birds in 2018

Liam is a little young to watch Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 classic, but he's absolutely adorable in this modern reenactment.

Kylie Jenner and Stormi as a stormy weather in 2018

Jenner didn't have to look for to find the inspiration for this epic look. This visual pun is too perfect.

Khloe Kardashian and True aa unicorns (and a bonus panda) in 2018

Khloe Kardashian's daughter True had more costumes for her first Halloween than her mama could fit it one pic. Scroll through Khloe's slideshow to see True transform from a baby unicorn to the sweetest little panda bear! 🐼

Jillian Harris and her whole family (even the dog) in 2018

Jillian Harris went down a rabbit hole this Halloween, dressing everyone in the fam (from baby Annie to her pooch Nacho Cilantro) in matching Alice in Wonderland costumes. We can't see her partner Justin Passuto's face in this shot, but we're sure he loves the look!

Todd Talbot and his family in 2018

Not to be outdone, Harris' Love it or List It, Too co-host, Todd Talbot, went all out with his kiddos. They picked The Greatest Showman as their family theme (suggesting Todd's kids and Pink's daughter share a favourite movies).

Ali Fedotowsky-Manno's daughter Molly was the cutest chicken ever in 2018

Busy Philips' daughter Birdie was a 90's girl in 2018

Last year little Birdie went (hilariously) as her mom (see below), and this year she's rocking the '80's aesthetic. Very realistic, Birdie!

Busy Philips daughter Birdie as Busy in 2017

Like we said, amazing.

Chrissy Teigen's daughter Luna in 2016

Have you ever seen a cuter hot dog?

Jillian Harris and the fam in 2016

Jillian Harris has added another cast member to her Halloween posse this year with the birth of daughter Annie, but we love this Wizard of Oz Halloween throwback photo, with son Leo reprising the role of the Cowardly Lion.

Jillian Harris' son in 2017

Jillian Harris is on a legit roll with Leo's amazing costumes. In 2017 he went as a wild thing from Where the Wild Things Are and his look was everything!

Alyssa Milano and daughter Elizabella in 2017

Actress Alyssa Milano and her daughter Elizabella were #twinning as Daisy Duck.

Reese Witherspoon and her daughter Ava twinning in 2007

Speaking of twins...Reese Witherspoon's daughter Ava is basically her mini-me so their look for Halloween 2007 was perfection.

Hilary Duff and son Luca in 2017

Luca and Younger actress Hilary Duff got into the Halloween spirit by dressing up as a LEGO and bunny, respectively.

Neil Patrick Harris and his family in 2017 (and every year, honestly)

Neil Patrick Harris' family pulls out all the stops for Halloween and last year's getup was no exception—he and his children (Harper Grace and Gideon Scott) dressed up as macabre circus performers.

Nicole Richie's son lost his head in 2017

For a PG-13 costume that's perfect for teens, check out Nicole Richie's son Sparrow's Headless Horseman costume.

Jimmy Fallon's daughter Winnie in 2014

Jimmy Fallon's daughter Winnie went as ramen for Halloween back in 2014. Her look was epic (and homemade!)

There are few kids television shows as successful as PAW Patrol. The Spin Masters series has spawned countless toys and clothing deals, a live show and now, a movie.

That's right mama, PAW Patrol is coming to the big screen in 2021.

The big-screen version of PAW Patrol will be made with Nickelodeon Movies and will be distributed by Paramount Pictures.

"We are thrilled to partner with Paramount and Nickelodeon to bring the PAW Patrol franchise, and the characters that children love, to the big screen," Spin Master Entertainment's Executive Vice President, Jennifer Dodge, announced Friday.

FEATURED VIDEO

"This first foray into the arena of feature film marks a significant strategic expansion for Spin Master Entertainment and our properties. This demonstrates our commitment to harnessing our own internal entertainment production teams to develop and deliver IP in a motion picture format and allows us to connect our characters to fans through shared theatrical experiences," Dodge says.

No word on the plot yet, but we're gonna bet there's a problem, 'round Aventure Bay, and Ryder and his team of pups will come and save the day.

We cannot even imagine how excited little PAW Patrol fans will be when this hits theatres in 2021. It's still too early to buy advance tickets but we would if we could!

Chrissy Teigen is one of the most famous moms in the world and definitely one of the most famous moms on social media.

She's the Queen of Twitter and at least the Duchess of Instagram but with a massive following comes a massive dose of mom-shame, and Teigen admits the online comments criticizing her parenting affects her.

"It's pretty much everything," Teigen told Today, noting that the bulk of the criticism falls into three categories: How she feeds her kids, how she uses her car seats and screen time.

"Any time I post a picture of them holding ribs or eating sausage, I get a lot of criticism," she explained. "Vegans and vegetarians are mad and feel that we're forcing meat upon them at a young age. They freak out."

FEATURED VIDEO

Teigen continues: "If they get a glimpse of the car seat there is a lot of buckle talk. Maybe for one half of a second, the strap slipped down. And TV is another big one. We have TV on a lot in my house. John and I work on television; we love watching television."

Teigen wants the shame to stop, not just for herself but for all the other moms who feel it. (And we agree.)

"Hearing that nine out of 10 moms don't feel like they're doing a good enough job is terrible," she said. "We're all so worried that we're not doing all that we can, when we really are."

The inspiration for Teigen talking publicly about mom-shame may be in part because of her participation in Pampers' "Share the Love" campaign. But even though Teigen's discussion coincides with this campaign, the message remains equally important. Advertising can be a powerful tool for shifting the way society thinks about what's "normal" and we would much rather see companies speaking out against mom-shame than inducing it to sell more stuff.

Calling out mom-shame in our culture is worth doing in our lives, our communities and yes, our diaper commercials. Thank you Chrissy (and thank you, Pampers).

Gabrielle Union + Dwyane Wade have been blended family goals, an inspiration to those struggling with infertility and now they are an inspiration to parents of trans kids and supporters of trans rights.

Earlier this month Wade appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and spoke about his 12-year-old daughter Zaya coming out as transgender and Union posted a beautiful video + caption to Instagram, inviting fans to "meet Zaya."

This week Wade appeared on Good Morning America, explaining that Zaya has known she was transgender since she was 3 years old.

"Zaya has known it for nine years," the proud dad said on GMA, adding that he credits Zaya (who was assigned as male at birth) with educating him and helping him grow.

FEATURED VIDEO

"I knew early on that I had to check myself... I've been a person in the locker room that has been a part of the conversation that has said the wrong phrases and the wrong words myself," he told GMA's Robin Roberts. "My daughter was my first interaction when it comes to having to deal with this conversation...Hopefully I'm dealing with it the right way... Inside our home we see the smile on my daughter's face, we see the confidence that she's able to walk around and be herself and that's when you know you're doing right."

It sure seems like Wade and Union have been doing it right. When Union posted a video to Instagram earlier this month introducing Zaya it was clear the tween's dad and step-mom have her back.

In the video Zaya is riding in a golf cart with her dad and dropping wisdom. She says: "Just be true to yourself, because what's the point of even living on this earth if you're going to try to be someone you're not?...Be true and don't really care what the 'stereotypical' way of being you is."

Union was so impressed by her step-daughter, captioning the video: "She's compassionate, loving, whip smart and we are so proud of her. It's Ok to listen to, love & respect your children exactly as they are. Love and light good people."

Later in the week Union addressed criticism of Zaya's transition on Twitter, writing: "This has been a journey. We're still humbly learning but we decided quickly w/ our family that we wouldn't be led by fear. We refuse to sacrifice the freedom to live authentically becuz we are afraid of what ppl might say. U have the ability to learn & evolve."

Zaya's big brother is also on her side. Newly 18-year-old Zaire posted the cutest throwback pic from when he and Zaya were just little kids, noting how the siblings were and are best friends.

"Man, I remember bugging my mom as a kid telling her I wanted a brother so bad. I was the only child looking for company and someone to look after and take care of," Zaire began his caption. "I have been blessed to have my best friend, Zaya with me for 12 years. We did everything together … we fought, we played, we laughed and we cried. But the one thing we never did was leave each other behind."

Zaire continued: "I've told you that I would lay my life down to make sure you are ten toes down and happy on this earth," he told his younger sibling. "I don't care what they think Z, you are my best friend and I love you kid, and if it means anything, just know there's no love lost on this side ✊🏾"

We are so impressed and inspired by the love Zaya's family is showing her (and other kids by sharing this story publicly). You've got this Zaya!

Back in August the the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Contigo announced the recall of millions of Contigo Kids Cleanable water bottles—about 5.7 million of them.

Now, the CPSC and Contigo are recalling millions of water bottles and the replacement lids that were given to consumers as part of the August 2019 recall.

"Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled water bottles and the replacement lids provided in the previous recall, take them away from children, and contact Contigo for a free water bottle. Consumers who received replacement lids in the previous recall should contact Contigo for the new water bottle," the CPSC states.

Millions of Contigo Kids Cleanable water bottles were originally recalled after it became clear the silicone spout could pose a choking hazard.

"Contigo identified that the water bottle's clear silicone spout in some cases may detach from the lid of the water bottle," Contigo stated in a notice posted to its Facebook page back in August.

According to the CPSC, "Contigo [had] received 149 reports of the spout detaching including 18 spouts found in children's mouths" before the original recall.

Now, the CPSC reports "Contigo has received a total of 427 reports of the spout detaching including 27 spouts found in children's mouths."

All of the recalled water bottles have a black color spout base and spout cover.

This week Contigo expanded the recall. The original date range was for Contigo Kids Cleanable Water Bottle from April 2018 through June 2019. Now it is for bottles purchased through February 2020, and all the replacement lids.
