Jessica Simpson Ditches High Heels One Month Before Due Date

The pregnant fashionista is finally switching to flats: "Wearing heels is like a religion to me, so it's tough!"

Jessica Simpson has made a point of staying stylish throughout her pregnancy, but there comes a point when even she has to give up stilettos and switch to more sensible shoes.

"Only one month to go!" the Fashion Star mentor, 31, told an admirer at Fred Segal's in Santa Monica Tuesday, where she and a friend were shopping. "I can't wear heels anymore," Simpson admitted, according to Us Weekly. "I tried but it was too hard. Wearing heels is like a religion to me, so it's tough!"

Of course, the news means that Simpson will have to revise her birth plan, which once included wearing stilettos throughout her labor and delivery.

"I'm probably going to deliver my baby in [4-inch YSL heels]... I went to the doctor yesterday and he said, 'You're gonna need to get out of those heels!" she joked to Us Weekly back in November.

The mom-to-be (who recently celebrated her star-studded baby shower) and fiance Eric Johnson expect to welcome their first child, a girl, in April.

"It's like carrying a bowling ball!" Simpson was overheard saying of her belly. "Almost done!"
