Jessica Simpson has reportedly given up her beloved heels more than half way into her second pregnancy and she is now said to be embracing sensible flats.
Like many other pregnant celebrities, the "Fashion Star" mentor had sacrificed personal comfort for the sake of fashion during her pregnancy. Throughout her first pregnancy Simpson, 32, was often photographed wearing towering heels, however it appears that she has since had a change of heart this time around.
"Practicing walking in flats around my house," Simpson tweeted on March 29.
A growing number of Hollywood starlets have made it a trend for women to wear extremely high heels even during the late stages of pregnancy. A source claims that constantly wearing heels has ultimately become a health hazard for Simpson.
"Jessica is no longer wearing heels," a source told Us magazine. "Her feet are swollen and hurt, and high heels hurt her back."
The singer, who is said to be expecting a baby boy with fiance Eric Johnson, was advised by doctors to stop wearing heels during her first pregnancy.
"I went to the doctor yesterday and he said, 'You're gonna need to get out of those heels!'" she said in November 2011. "I was like, 'Excuse me! I'll be delivering in these heels!"
Simpson and Johnson, 34, have reportedly picked out a baby name for their future son. Their 11-month-old daughter was named Maxwell Drew.
"[She's] told people she's going to name the baby Ace!" a source said.
