Festivities are often a highlight of the year for mothers of toddlers.

And Chantelle Houghton was certainly getting into the spirit of Halloween as she dressed her cute daughter Dolly in an adorable pumpkin costume on Thursday.

The 30-year-old star was spotted doting over her 14-month-old daughter who was wearing a brightly coloured jumpsuit and matching green hat.

The red and orange striped outfit featured a pumpkin’s face in the middle and a green stalk design at the neck. 

Former reality star Chantelle also got into the fun herself, by wearing a pair of bright red devil’s horns.

 

She wore her long brunette locks loose around her shoulders and dressed in a warm outfit of black patent boots, leather leggings and a knitted cream and silver jumper.

Little Dolly looked to be getting ready for some trick and treating as she was also carrying a pumpkin bucket which matched her costume.

Meanwhile, Chantelle had also made a special effort to make her home look spooky, hanging up orange and black balloons, spider decorations and torn netting.

The mother and daughter also went out to make more preparations, coming home with a pumpkin and shopping bags.

Dolly was dressed in a white bow-patterned coat and red shoes for the outing and clutched a pink Minnie Mouse shopping bag.

Meanwhile, as a new mum, Chantelle has recently spoken out about how she is getting used to her post-baby figure.

The star, who is a size 14-16, wrote on Twitter: ‘The people that are making digs about my body will understand one day when or if they have a baby. #Proudofmymummybody'.

She also wrote in her own New! column: 'It was claimed last week that I've employed the services of the same personal trainer as Katie Price.

'I haven't employed any personal trainer full stop - as I've said in my column, I'm not exercising right now, hence the way I look at the moment!'

Chantelle rose to fame after starring in Celebrity Big Brother, where she pretended to be a fictional celebrity, a singer from the band Kandy Floss. 

She met her former husband, Ordinary Boys singer Samuel Preston, in the house with the pair marrying in 2006 and divorcing just over a year later.

She went on to get engaged to Dolly’s father, Alex Reid in 2011, but the pair split in September last year.

She looks like she has lost a fair bit of weight since all those horrible articles about her. Didn't like her back in the attention seeking days but she seems like she has a real sense of perspective now and she looks a LOT happier now. And the baby is adorable! Double of her dad in the 3rd photo but (somehow) absolutely precious.
