Although I never imagined I would use the words ‘Rihanna’ and ‘Target’ in such close proximity to each other, sometimes life comes at you fast. The two icons recently intersected when the fabulously pregnant Rihanna was papped shopping for baby items in the aisles. The internet could not handle the greatness of their queen (a recently minted billionaire) frequenting the same aisles as the rest of us.

What did our bad girl Ri-Ri choose? From the looks of it, onesies and a totes adorbs little ruffled dress by the Target brand Cat and Jack.
While it’s unclear if Rihanna has a baby registry at the retailer, as your friend, I have to tell you: the Target baby registry is fire, y’all. You get a goodie bag worth over $100, a 15% discount on registry items, an extended return period, plus, access to exclusive sales. So, yeah, even if your baby is eight months old, sign ’em up. The list can be as long or as short as you like. If nothing else, it can be used as a birthday or holiday list you can give to grandparents and aunties.
If you’re curious about what’s in store for babies at Target, here are some winners that will get you started.
Your little one will grow FAST, so buying their clothes at Target makes sense. Who wants to spend $90 on a onesie they’ll wear exactly twice? Instead, head over to Target and pick up an adorable (and complete) outfit for under $30. They have tons of options, including gender neutral options and a sweet new line called Q by Quincy Mae.
It’s so easy to spend a ton on baby toys, but the truth is, your wee one will be totes into a toy one day, then be 100% unimpressed the next. Don’t spend a lot if you don’t have to. Exceptions can be made for Montessori-like toys that will grow with your child, and Target has ’em at ‘let’s give it a go and try it’ prices. Which is better than ‘we spent a lot on this, so now, I guess we’re Montessori parents’ prices.
Nurseries (or as I like to call them, little baby bedrooms) can be as colorful or as muted as you like. The challenge, though, is you don’t want to spend bank on a room for a person you haven’t met yet. A themed nursery is fine when the babe is born, and even up to about age 2, but after that, your kiddo will have their own interests and opinions. So don’t spend a chunk of money on a nursery that you might redo by the time your child learns to walk.
If Target’s good enough to pique the interest of a billionaire, it’s something to look into for yourself. Besides, who wouldn’t want to have something in common with Rihanna?
