Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson expecting child – Tabloid Hell

Fall Out Boy bassist confirms the rumours

Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz and pop star Ashlee Simpson announced today (May 29) that they are expecting their first child.

Rumours have been flying that Simpson was pregnant since the pair had a shotgun wedding earlier this month, but they did not confirm the pregnancy until today.

Wentz wrote on his blog: “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.”

Yesterday, Simpson announced that she intends to take on her new husband’s last name, using Ashlee Wentz in her private life, and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz professionally, as previously reported.
