Ashlee Simpson: It's a Boy!
Musical performer Ashlee Simpson, 24, must be breathing a huge sigh of relief. She and 29-year-old Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz are the proud parents of a shiny new baby boy. People reports that Bronx Mowgli Wentz weighed 7 lbs., 11 oz., when he came into this world at Cedars-Sinai hospital Thursday night.
The newest addition to the Simpson-Wentz dynasty was 20 1/2 inches long and is presumed to be the only infant in the Cedars-Sinai maternity ward who is already applying his own eyeliner.
"Ashlee, Pete and baby Bronx are all healthy and happy," said a spokesperson for the couple, "and thank everyone for their well wishes!"
It took a while, but it looks like Ashlee Simpson-Wentz's human cargo is ready to make its debut.
In Touch Weekly reports that Simpson-Wentz, 24, has gone into labor, and is as of Thursday evening at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, preparing to push like a mother.
A family insider tells the mag that 29-year-old daddy-to-be Pete Wentz "and the family are really excited and are waiting to meet the baby."
Ashlee and Pete confirmed the pregnancy in April, and it's been a long haul since then. At one point, the parents even resorted to bribery in the hopes of coaxing their child-to-be out.
Now it seems that the time has come. Good luck, guys!
