Pete, Ashlee and Baby Finally Make Three

A mutual affection for dramatic eyeliner application might be what triggered their initial attraction, but recently conjoined Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson married for love—the love of their unborn kid, who is about ready to start kicking up a storm.

It’s unfair to say the emo rocker and the lip-syncher’s recent and sudden nuptials took place at shotgun point. However, speculation was rife prior to the Nightmare Before Christmas-themed ceremony that Ashlee’s bridal glow had something to do with a tiny bit of Pete growing inside her.

The couple deflected direct questioning about the pregnancy, neither yaying or naying…until the evening of Wednesday, May 28.

A simple explanatory statement on Pete’s Friends or Enemies journal reads:

“While many have speculated about this, we wanted to wait until after the first trimester to officially confirm that we are expecting our first child. This is truly the most joyous time in our lives, and we are excited to share the happy news and start our family.”

Congratulations are in order for the lovebirds. And condolences should be extended to Jessica. That suicide watch had better be a close one.
