Jessica Simpson says she'll give birth in heels

No need to sacrifice style during childbirth!

Fashion empress Jessica Simpson plans to keep on wearing heels up until the moment — literally! — she welcomes her and fiance Eric Johnson's baby to the world.

"I'm probably going to deliver my baby in these (4-inch YSL heels)," she joked to the new Us Weekly, on stands Friday. "I went to the doctor yesterday and he said, 'You're gonna need to get out of those heels!'"

Her response? "I was like, 'Excuse me! I'll be delivering in these heels!'"

The 31-year-old "Fashion Star" mentor is really having fun with her pregnancy style so far. "I like wearing things more fitted," she explained. "You want to show off your bump! It's just so fun. You don't want to wear muumuus so you can moo around town."

"My kid's going to think I'm pretty cool!" she told Us. "This is a cool thing to welcome my baby to the world with."
