Christina Aguilera is determined to continue wearing heels throughout her pregnancy. The 'Beautiful' singer, who recently confirmed she is pregnant with her first child with husband Jordan Bratman, has a massive collection of high heeled shoes, but won't be putting them to the back of her closet while she is expecting.
Christina said: "I'm always able to work my heels - I don't care how big or small I am!"
However, Christina's choice of footwear is not ideal for pregnant women. Medical expert Dr. McAndrews advises expectant mothers to avoid wearing heels because it puts pressure on the wearer's back.
Dr. McAndrews is quoted on website Natural Family Online as saying: "Pregnant women should never wear high heels! High heels exaggerate the normal forward curve of the spine, but the back is not able to accommodate it."
Christina also revealed she has been taking fashion tips from fellow Hollywood mother-to-be Halle Berry.
She said: "I just saw Halle and she said fashion is on our side. I think she is right. The empire cut is working for us right now!"
