Could you imagine the likes of Shiloh Jolie-Pitt or Honor Warren coming to your front door on Halloween night? Celebrity Baby Scoop is taking a look at 15 celebrity families that love to go trick-or-treating with their tots in their swanky neighborhoods.
1. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
RadarOnline caught Brangelina and their brood trick-or-treating in the Los Angeles area on Halloween night.
Brad Pitt looked hilarious dressed up as DJ Lance Rock from the kids TV show Yo Gabba Gabba! His leading lady, Angelina Jolie, went as the walking dead, while Maddox was a dead army soldier, Zahara was Batgirl, and Shiloh was a jet fighter.
2. Christina Aguilera
Grammy Award-winning singer Christina Aguilera was spotted with son Max trick-or-treating in Brentwood, Calif. on Halloween night. The mother-son duo looked adorable in their matching skeleton costumes.
3. Scott Baio
See Dad Run star Scott Baio and wife Renee have big plans for their daughter Bailey, nearly 5, this Halloween.
“Bailey got a witch Minnie Mouse costume that has orange and black polka dots, and we will go trick-or-treating up in our neighborhood,” Scott recently told Celebrity Baby Scoop. “There are hundreds of kids that come up here, so it is a lot of fun.”
When she was just 2, Bailey buzzed along as a bee in their Los Angeles neighborhood.
“We went trick-or-treating in our Toluca Lake neighborhood,” Renee said. “It’s very festive for Halloween. They close down some of the streets. Buses drop children off by what looks to be in the hundreds. A lot of the parents/adults dress up too. A few of the homes (the Kerns family – the juice makers – and the Disney family) really go out with turning their property into a haunted house scene.”

With the Halloween season upon us, Celebrity Baby Scoop is getting into the spirit of dressing up.
And what better way to celebrate than by looking at our favorite celebrity kids in their spooktacular costumes! From Neil Patrick Harris’ festive family, to Alyson Hannigan’s pretty lil’ pumpkin, to Amy Adams and her cute kitten, let’s take a look at last year’s best Halloween costumes in Hollywood.
1. Neil Patrick Harris
Neil Patrick Harris shared an adorable picture with his twins – son Gideon and daughter Harper – last Halloween.
The family-of-four dressed up with a Peter Pan theme, with NPH going as Captain Hook, his partner David Burtka as Peter, and their twins as Smee and Tinkerbell. What a great idea!
2. Alyson Hannigan
Alyson Hannigan and husband Alexis Denisof love getting dressed up for Halloween. Last year, they dressed as a scarecrow couple alongside their sweet daughter Satyana who went as a pumpkin.
3. Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba and husband Cash Warren got festive with their two daughters, Honor and Haven, last Halloween night. Dressed in costumes, the family-of-four were seen trick-or-treating in their Pacific Palisades neighborhood.
Cash looked great as Superman, while Jess wore a cute cat outfit. But Honor stole the show in her Princess Ariel costume.
4. Britney Spears
Britney Spears and her family posed for a festive picture in London last Halloween. The pop superstar shared a photo while on tour, looking amazing in a femme fatale outfit alongside her sweet sons, her mother Lynne, and beau Jason Trawick.
Jayden James looked adorable as Batman while Sean Preston was too cute in his ninja outfit. Grandma Lynne sported a witch costume, while Jason opted for his everyday look. “Loved celebrating Halloween in Londontown with my family!” Brit tweeted.
5. Ali Larter
New mom Ali Larter and her baby boy Theodore were a perfect pair as they headed to a Halloween party last year at a friend’s house dressed as bumble bees. Cute as can bee!
6. Tori Spelling
Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott are parents to four kids. Last year, the proud mom took to Twitter to share a cute photo of their oldest kids, Liam and Stella, all decked out in their Halloween costumes.
“This year, Liam chose to be a Ninja Transformer and Stella is a Darling Witch,” wrote the mom-of-four.
7. Katherine Heigl
Grey’s Anatomy alum Katherine Heigl and husband Josh Kelley got into the Halloween spirit last year as they took their adorable daughter Naleigh to a party in Los Angeles.
While the couple looked great in their costumes, Naleigh melted our hearts in her pretty princess outfit.
8. Holly Robinson Peete
Weezy never looked better! Holly Robinson Peete dressed up in a Lil Wayne costume at the 18th Annual Dream Halloween event in Los Angeles last Halloween.
The mom-of-four got right into character, posing just like the rapper. Starting with his trademark dreadlocks right down to the teardrop tattoo on his face, Holly rocked it alongside her costumed sons Robinson and Roman.
9. Melissa Rycroft
Reality TV mama Melissa Rycroft and husband Tye Strickland posed for pics with their adorable baby girl Ava at the Dream Halloween benefit in Los Angeles last Halloween.
The family-of-three looked great dressed up as Fred, Wilma, and Pebbles Flintstone.
10. Amy Adams
Sweet baby Aviana was in costume for her trip to the pumpkin patch with her parents Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo last Halloween, pairing a leopard print suit and ears with a black tutu. What a cutie!

Did you know that costume wearing evolved from a 17th-century British tradition of wearing masks for Guy Fawkes Day? Since then, costumes have evolved into fun, fantastical ways to showcase creativity and imagination.
According to Yahoo.com, the top five search trends for baby costumes this year included pop culture characters such as Angry Bird and Cookie Monster as well as the ever-popular butterfly, dinosaur, and pumpkin outfits. Meanwhile, toddlers were eager to dress up as pirates, elephants, characters from Disney Pixar’s “Up,” and even the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Harry Potter, Michael Jackson, and classic Disney characters such as Mickey and Minnie were the top-searched kids’ costumes.
If you haven’t headed outdoors yet with the kids, take a few moments to brush up on your Halloween safety to ensure it’s a frightfully fun and fearless evening.
And if you’re still pondering what to make for dinner tonight, stop by the supermarket after trick-or-treating ends to pick up ingredients for these last-minute recipes.
After dinner, while the kids are sorting through their candy loot, take a breather and test your candy smarts or keep everyone entertained with free printable coloring pages.
Better yet, gather the whole family and explain the history of Halloween, including why we celebrate certain customs such as trick-or-treating, carving pumpkins, and bobbing for apples (Halloween Traditions for the Family). Or download our free Carve-a-Pumpkin app to keep the Halloween fun going throughout the night.
Happy Halloween! (and don’t forget to share how you’re celebrating in our Comments section below.)

We caught up with the single mom of 4-year-old Jack at the launch of the new Let’s Rock! Elmo toy, in New York City, where she accepted a donation on behalf of the charity Baby Buggy.
Do you have any Halloween plans yet?
Bridget Moynahan: Oh my gosh, no! I don’t even know what I’m doing ten minutes from now. What, do you think I’m organized?!
Well, you do look very organized!
BM: I’ll say that I bet he’ll be a Star Wars figure for Halloween. But don’t put pressure on me about the holidays! Honestly. I planned his birthday party about two days in advance.
When was his birthday?
BM: In August. There was a Star Wars theme. He’s already got some stuff. Maybe we’ll keep him on the same theme for a couple of years, so I can recycle!
What was the progression of the obsessions with 4-year-old Jack? Did he start with Elmo?
BM: He did! He had the Tickle Me Elmo. So that was a big thing in the house for awhile. And he still watches Sesame Street. So there’s that but…he’s a boy.
How did he get into Star Wars? Does he watch Clone Wars?
BM: It was me. I got him into it.
Are you a closet Star Wars fan?
BM: I’m not a closet Star Wars fan. I’m pretty much out.
We’ll look for you as Princess Leia!
BM: I will be!
