These adorable pontiffs win Halloween, hands down.
Two years ago, Barack Obama couldn’t control his smile when the President met his first-ever baby pope, and the adorable photos went viral. To keep everyone smiling again this year, we rounded up some of our very favorite baby popes from Instagram … because we know you want to see them.
This baby pope will grow into his hat soon enough. (Aren’t oversized things on babies the best?)
Popemobile part II: This baby pope has a popemobile that’s arguably more tricked out than the one Obama had a run-in with. We’re loving the “ROMA” license plate.
The blue pacifier and red booties really add style to this baby pope cruising around Brooklyn’s fashionable Park Slope neighborhood. Oh, and maybe his carriage with Vatican flags.
This little baby pope has a little baby nun friend.
This little pope went cruising in yet another type of adorable popemobile: a papal sports car.
The plaid trim on this baby pope’s costume (made by grandma with love) is certainly a unique touch!
This baby pope is squealing with joy before going out for his trick-or-treating adventure.
But not all pope babies are as happy about their new role. Someone’s a wee bit cranky about all the big decisions he has to make as the Holy Father.
Look at that teeny skullcap! Bonus: this baby pope looks warm and cozy—perfect for a brisk Halloween evening.
Mom got pretty detail oriented with the gold foil here. Here’s a shout-out to all the parents who work overtime before Halloween to get their kiddos’ costumes just right — whether they’re walking with baby pope trick-or-treaters or other Halloween cuties.
