Love isn’t the only thing on Rihanna’s brain these days, apparently a baby too. The “Umbrella” singer and founder of Fenty Beauty announced earlier today that she and boyfriend A$AP Rocky are expecting their first child together. In true RiRi style, the pop star showed her bump while sporting a partially unbuttoned hot pink puffer jacket and body jewelry.
While the rest of the world wonders what cool name the couple will give their little one, our first thought was a little different. “Can you imagine what the nursery will look like? our editors immediately relaxed after hearing the news. We’ve no doubt her little one’s nest will be as fierce as mom’s fashion choices, but if she needs some help designing the piece, we’ve found five finds to get her started.
A little zebra print to set the scene
Zebra Flat-Weave Mat, Cold Picnic ($636)
While you can never go wrong with an oversized giraffe stuffed animal, we have a hunch the star will gravitate toward zebra-inspired decor when it comes to nods to wildlife. (The London home she rented in 2020 featured a slew of zebra-print pillows, and she’s known for being the proud owner of a black and white Rick Owens coat which has some serious jungle vibes.)
A cradle that shines like a diamond
Caden Bassinet, HR ($1,100)
Glam is the name of the game here, and no material says “this space belongs to an A-list newborn” like aged brass. Of course, not everything is practical: this bassinet is covered in performance linen because accidents happen to everyone.
A bling-out speaker
Bluetooth Mini Boombox, Playhouse ($70)
Relaxing lullabies (or, if the mood calls for it, mom and dad’s own melodies) will sound sweeter out of this Bluetooth-enabled speaker. And when their little one reaches the toddler stage, the couple can purchase the matching game karaoke microphone for singing along to go with.
A moment inspired by Saint Laurent
I Love Me Egg Pillow ($80)
In honor of Rihanna’s iconic Saint Laurent red heart-shaped fur coat (the photo she posted of herself in the jacket on Instagram garnered over 800,000 likes), we present to you an adorable addition to any rocking chair style.
A tribute at home
Martinique Celebration Wallpaper, Voutsa x CW Stockwell ($1,000 a roll)
The Barbados-born singer can teach her little one about her roots right from the start by covering an accent wall or ceiling in this vibrant print that recalls the Caribbean island’s colorful architecture.
