Jessica Simpson Stops Wearing Heels During Second Pregnancy, Practices Walking In Flats (PHOTO)


Jessica Simpson's commitment to high heels is pretty impressive.

Throughout her first pregnancy, the singer teetered in her 6-inch stilettos until she was relegated to flip-flops during her last month. "I can't wear heels anymore," she complained during a shopping trip at Fred Segal last year. "I tried but it was too hard. Wearing heels is like a religion to me, so it's tough!"

But how is she faring these days during her second go at maternity wear? Not so great, according to the star.

This time around, Jessica took to Twitter to admit her defeat against the increasingly-painful footwear during her second pregnancy. "Practicing walking in flats around my house," she tweeted along with a photo of her feet in a pair of black flip-flops.

"Jessica is no longer wearing heels," a source recently told Us Weekly. "Her feet are swollen and hurt, and high heels hurt her back."

Don't worry, Jess, we totally understand. But we do have to tell you one thing: There are a whole world of flats out there -- not just flip-flops. So before you get too sad about your situation, we suggest you try a ballet flat, an oxford or even a loafer. Who knows? This could be the beginning of a new style era for you.

And besides, we're sure you'll be back in your heels the second your baby boy is born.
