This cheeky new trend is taking Instagram by storm...

Behold the newest Halloween trend to hit social media – baby pumpkin butts.

Yes, you read that right. #Pumpkinbutt is a fast growing trend led by parents on Instagram, who are sharing photographs of their adorable little ones with pumpkins on their butts.

Some parents pap their babies with an actual pumpkin strategically placed over their derrières, whilst others use face paints to draw a pumpkin onto the actual butt cheeks of their child.

We guess getting your kid to sit still while you strategically place (or paint!) a pumpkin over their behind is easier said than done!

Plus, pumpkins come in all shapes and sizes (much like babies!) so picking the right pumpkin is half the challenge – and half the fun!
