Many women will have a moment in their life where they will take a pregnancy test. The results will bring different reactions for everyone. One thought may be, “Am I ready for this?” Another might be, “Will it be a boy or a girl?” And yet another, more common thought will undoubtedly be, “What the hell am I going to wear for the next nine months?”

Well, look no further than Bella Bambini, the new maternity and early childhood store for you, me and everyone else.

The store is located in the Shoppes of Knollwood at 2213 S. Neil St. in Champaign — right where Rubens Chocolates used to stand. Bella Bambini is partnered with the owner of Bella Mia Boutique, the adult clothing store in the same complex. It will feature hip and trendy clothing for all the moms out there who can’t stand the thought of spending three-quarters of the year looking like, well, a “mom.” And after the baby is here, you can head right back over to dress your Jack or Jill up in the best apparel money can buy.

The Grand Opening is this Friday, May 16 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. There will be cupcakes to feed your cravings, a raffle to win prizes from the store, as well as two magic shows at 12 p.m. and 4 p.m.
