Halloween is a great time for a parent and child to bond. Whether you’re dressing up alongside your little one or are simply showing off their adorable costumes, like Kelly Ripa recently did on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, there’s plenty of shared spooky fun to be had. Busy Philipps’ daughter, Birdie, just proved that point when she got all decked out in a totally genius costume that had her mom and her legions of followers alike in stitches: Busy herself.
With her pink hair, mom’s Natalie Martin dress (which daughter Cricket has dubbed Mr. Nightgown), and her ever-present coffee mug, which she requested that Philipps bring to her school, Birdie was the spitting image of her famous mother.
She also gushed about the nine-year-old’s look with a now expired Instagram story, telling her fans, “You guys, I just looked at Birdie’s Halloween photo that I posted — I’m gonna start to cry — it’s so sweet! I know she’s making fun of me. I mean, she’s just being silly, she’s not making fun of me (she’s kind of making fun of me), but she’s just her own person and I really respect that.”
She continued on to saw how the pre-teen had had overcome doubts about the getup adding, “Birdie was questioning whether she should get a store-bought costume because a girl at school was like, ‘You’re gonna be your mom? That’s so weird,’ and Birdie was feeling insecure about it, but then yesterday, she was like, ‘No, I wanna do it. That’s what I wanna be.”
She definitely made the right move — not only did her costume kill, but she fit right in with her friends, who also dressed up as famous people/characters, going as Skrillex and Evan Hansen from Broadway’s Dear Evan Hansen. “I’m obsessed with Birdie and her friends!” Philipps wrote.
Us too, girl. Us too.
