Kim Kardashian and Jessica Simpson are just two mothers-to-be who have recently been spotted shopping at the Bel Bambini boutique, West Hollywood. The luxury store is popular with other celebrity mums, including Adele, Jessica Alba, Halle Berry, Hilary Duff and Christina Aguilera.
Pregnant Kim, 32, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend rapper Kanye West in July, was accompanied by sisters Khloé and Kourtney on her visit as she choose items for her baby registry.

“She mainly looked at simple clothing, nothing too girly,” an onlooker told People.
Kim reportedly made a beeline for the designer goodies, browsing items from Baby Dior, Fendi, Chloé and Roberto Cavalli. She opted for a neutral style, choosing mainly whites and creams for clothing. The reality TV star wants to decorate the nursery in chic black and white, to match the style of the rest of her house.
Kim was clearly excited about shopping for her baby, posting on her blog, “Went to Bel Bambini yesterday! Such a cute store! I needed Kourtney there to help me pick out the essentials!”
In 2012, sister Kourtney was spotted registering for gifts for her baby girl but steered clear of anything pink and likewise went for a neutral theme. On her wish list was the popular teething toy, Sophie the Giraffe, and an embroidered vintage bib. She also choose an alligator baby hair comb and hippo hairbrush.
While Kim is rumoured to be expecting a girl, Jessica Simpson has let slip that she”s expecting a boy. The blonde singer was spotted shopping at Bel Bambini the same week as Kim, and chose toys and clothing from Splendid, Jean Bourget and Little Marc Jacobs. Bel Bambini is clearly a go-to store Jessica, who also held the baby registry for her ten-month-old daughter Maxwell, there. Jessica, Kim and Kate Middleton are thought to be expecting their babies within weeks of each other.
British star Adele bought some essentials for her baby boy after his birth. She paid a visit to the shop earlier on this year, accompanied by her bodyguard, and spent an hour picking out baby wash, shampoos and a changing pad for son Angelo James, five months.
“She was in a great mood and just focused on picking up essentials for her baby boy,” said an onlooker.
