Despite his list of scheduled interviews, make no mistake, Pete Wentz is "permanently on-call right now," the singer tells Ryan Seacrest. With the nearing due date of his wife Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, according to a very excited Pete, "it could happen at any point now." While Pete cannot wait to meet the new addition, it is Ashlee who "just wants it to be over." In the final stretch and very uncomfortable, Pete shares that "she wants to have it because, it’s like a struggle to go up and down the stairs…going out in public is insane." As the couple counts down the arrival in California, it seems that Ashlee would much rather be anywhere else but the golden state! Pete laughs,
"She’s hot all the time. She’s like, ‘I wish I was in Canada right now.’ Our room temperature is set to like, 34 degrees. It’s insane!"
After making several hints in the past that they were expecting a boy, Pete reveals that they have managed to keep their original plan of a delivery surprise. Unsure of the sex of their new baby, Pete says that any final decisions on a name — which according to the soon-to-be dad has to jive for either a "rock star or a senator" — will have to wait until the birth. Pete jokes,
"My brother was almost a Duncan, and he’s Andrew now. I think it might have ruined his life more if he was a Duncan."
