Pete Wentz Respons to Baby Picture Payday

Pete Wentz has taken to his official blog to clear up rumors regarding the first photos of he and Ashlee Simpson’s newborn baby Bronx Mowgli.

Over at A Homeboy’s Life, Wentz responds to a Page Six item stating no weekly tabloid magazine would pony up the kind of cash Ashlee’s father Joe Simpson was demanding for snaps of the little one.

“Truth is like every celeb couple we were offered mounds and mounds of money by mags from here to Guam to pimp out the baby. We just don’t want to go down that road with him,” Wentz wrote.

He says the pair have decided not to sell first photographs of the baby, but respect other famous parents who do so “as they often use the money in a very charitable way.”

The world will see Bronx one day, however.

“We know there will be a time when we’ll share him with everyone because that insatiable curiosity becomes unsafe or simply because we’re proud parents who want to show him off!” Wentz blogs.

And if you’re looking for a sneak preview, there’s a post script to his confessional:

“Trust me he’s cute. He looks like his mommy.”
