Pete Wentz names Gym Class Hero as baby’s godfather – Tabloid Hell

Travis McCoy has an official role in Bronx Mowgli's life

Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz and wife Ashlee Simpson have asked Gym Class Heroes frontman Travis McCoy to be the godfather to their new baby.

The pair became parents to Bronx Mowgli Wentz last month, and asked McCoy to formally take part in the baby’s life after seeing him with their son.

I’m so proud,” Travis told In Touch Weekly . “Pete told me I was treading godfather territory and two days later, after I met Bronx and Ashlee saw how good I was with him, it was official.”

McCoy and Wentz are both currently displaying their art at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles, in an exhibition entitled ‘Without You I’m Just Me’. The show ends on December 24.

You can watch a video interview, in which Pete Wentz discusses each track on the new Fall Out Boy album Folie à Deux, below.
