When you’re the child of two pop stars, chances are you’re going to get some great lullabies. So it’s no surprise that dad-to-be Pete Wentz, 29, tells People.com he’s been singing to his unborn child. "Late at night," he says, "baby’s gotten a couple lullabies."

On the same note, Pete says wife Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, 23, doesn’t quite have her labor playlist ready yet, but when it comes time to choose songs, it’ll be all her decision. "I couldn’t be like, ‘Oh, you’re going through labor, here’s themusic I want you to listen to,’" he says. "So, it’s whatever she picks."

Pete has been turning to various sources — including his own dad and the book The Expectant Father — for advice. Another source of inspiration? Fellow musician — and new dadJoel Madden. Of their fatherly bonds, Pete says  "[It’s] been really awesome for me to go to another person my age."

There is one small baby debate left to be solved for Pete, a Chicagoan: Who will his son or daughter root for — the Chicago Cubs or Chicago White Sox? "If my dad has anything to say about it, I’m sure he will be a Cubsfan," Pete says. "If my friends have anything to say aboutit, it will probably be a Sox fan."

“…he will be a Cubs fan.”
Did Pete let something slip?

I don’t think so, he’s said he tries to switch it around because he feels odd saying it. But he called the baby it here anyway hahaha. Can’t wait to see what they have.

I don’t think he’s giving anything away. A friend of ours just had a baby and chose not to find out the sex and the whole time she was pregnant with Kennedy we kept saying “he” or “him”. (Plus, we really did think she was having a boy!) It just seems to flow easier off the tongue when you don’t know for sure, haha.

Imagine our surprise when we got the call that Kennedy did not in fact little boy parts when she came out!

He really IS mixing it up! I am seriously curious about what they are having. At one point I thought it was a girl when Ashley mentioned they were still deciding on a name for the baby (since it has been noted that Pete has said he would like the baby to be named Peter III if it was a boy) so I figured it was a girl based on that. Then he keeps calling it a HE in interviews so now I am back to thinking it’s a boy! I am so curious about this baby!

When is she due? I read October somewhere, but I don’t know if that was true.

Its a girl. Definetly. The information was leaked by a close family friend when Ashlee had her gender scan.

Ash- That was according to some tabloid, and when tabloids say “a close friend” told them information, you have to take it with a huge grain of salt. Same goes when they claim an “inside source” gave them the information.
