Jessica Simpson may be in her third trimester of pregnancy, but that hasn't stopped her commitment to fashion. The singer and apparel maven told Jay Leno on Monday's Tonight Show that she hasn't stopped wearing stilettos.
"We're waddling at this point," the 31-year-old star told Leno. "I'm wearing six-inch heels today, and it's a lot of weight to carry on six inches."
Simpson -- who's expecting her first baby, a girl, with fiancé Eric Johnson -- is brave enough to pose nude for Elle and waddle around in sky-high heels. But dealing with the pain of childbirth isn't something she feels ready to face.
"Labor is really going to hurt," says the mom-to-be. "I have so much respect for my mom and all the women across the world."
Until the labor starts, the fashionista (whose new show Fashion Star premieres Tuesday on NBC) admits that her source of comfort is a dessert called "slutty brownies" -- a three-layer bar that contains oreo cookies, chocolate chip dough and chocolate.
When Leno inquired about the name, Simpson played coy. "I don't know," she says of its unconventional name. "I guess a lot goes into them."
