Pete Wentz names child after Marvel character

The Fall Out Boy bassist and his partner welcomed a new daughter into the world this weekend

Pete Wentz has named his new baby after a Marvel character.

The Fall Out Boy bassist and partner Meagan Camper welcomed their daughter into the world this weekend. She is Wentz’ third child, following his son with Ashlee Simpson, Bronx Mowgli, and Saint Laszlo.

The musician confirmed the baby’s unusual name on Instagram yesterday (May 13), captioning a photo of his family: “So excited to introduce Marvel Jane Wentz. Feeling so grateful that she’s here… annnnd she’s already ready to takeover the world. Happy Mother’s Day @meagancamper and all the moms out there. We [love] you.”


It has since been reported that Marvel takes her name from one of the latest additions to the Avengers crew in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain Marvel. A standalone movie about the superhero is set for release in 2019, with Brie Larson playing the titular character.

Last month, Wentz celebrated the 10-year anniversary of a viral photo that saw Bruno Mars photobomb him.

On April 29, 2008, paparazzi took a photo of the bassist in Los Angeles, where a surprised-looking Mars appeared in the background. On the picture’s anniversary, Wentz tweeted: “Didn’t want you to think I forgot- can’t believe it’s been ten years.”

He also printed out a copy of the photo with the date changed to 04/29/2018, framed it and used it to “redecorate” his Singapore hotel room.
