Family outing! Pete Wentz manned the stroller while Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, 24, carried baby Bronx Mowgli as they left the Los Angeles Zoo on Wednesday.

The trio checked out the Sea Cliffs exhibit, but Bronx, 6 ½ months, was more interested in grabbing strands of Ashlee’s hair instead!

Pete, 30, pushes an OrbitBaby stroller system with toddler seat.

Bronx is so cute and big! I love them being together as a family! Pete’s glasses make me laugh though! but what can I say he is very unique!

Julia on

Aww, Bronx is just a little sweetheart!

Lis on

Bronx looks so cute in that pic!

Tearra on

I am a little bit confused – how do the photographers know that they are going to the Zoo? This is not a snapshot taken by a tourist; it’s a professional shot. Ashley & Pete aren’t Angie & Brad, who are followed by the photographers round the clock. While not nearly as famous as Naomi & Liev, Nicole & Keith, etc., there are a lot more paparazzi shots of them then of their more famous colleagues. Anywhere they go with Bronx (with Ashley always perfectly dressed and made up), they are “captured”. Do they pick up the phone and arrange these “photo-sessions”?

Martina, Tori and Dean have paps sitting in their cars on the road they live on, so if they have that intrusion, I am sure these two do also.

Erin on

Oh, and in this pic, I dont think Ashlee looks made up at all, her husband has more makeup on that she does.

I am going to step into freaky fan here for a second, Ashlee wore that top in Paris last year just before they announced they were having Bronx.

I love this family, I get a big grin on my face when I see them.

Martina the paps will find celebs, and they will get big bucks for these two with Bronx.
They may not be as famous as Nicole and Keith or Naomi an dLiev but the rags and other gossip blogs will pay for pics of them cause the fans demand them.

Paps are everywhere in la and def in specific neighborhoods and there are sooooo many of them they can truly afford to follow these people around all day.

I don’t have anything against the wentz family but there something annoying about a 20something and a 30yr old dressing like they’re h.s juniors. I dunno, they lack finesse to me.

I watched an interview with a member of the paparazzi,and don’t kid yourself many celebrities via their managers call them up and tell them where they will be.(he specifcally named Denise Ricahrds,Jessica Alba and Britney Spears.)
I immediately thought of the Bronx Zoo.LOL.

jenny on

I don’t think they look made up at all, in fact, they all look kind of homely to me in this pic?

Rachael on

I always think Pete looks like he’s got more makeup on than Ashley does. That would never work in the real lives of many, but whatever floats their boat. Just glad to see a family that’s sticking together and getting out with their child!

Brooklyn on

Bronx is so cute!

Ali on

they look like teenage parents
though they’re certainly a cute family

martina- I also think that a lot of the paparazzi guys have people call in to give them tips. Who knows, some people may even get paid a little for it. (My radio station here in Vegas gives away stuff sometimes if you call in and tell them where a celebrity is down on the strip, or what hotel number they are in, etc.) So it could be that someone who was at the zoo, called into a local place and they sent a photographer over. I just read on People that Rob Pattinson got mobbed by a group of women who tracked him down becuase they were tracking him via Twitter and Facebook. Like people keep posting where they saw him so they can stay up todate. Crazy stuff!

Andy on

I don’t know what the comment ‘They look like teenage parents, though they are cute’ was supposed to achieve, what a silly thing to say.

dee on

I don’t get it. Is she supposed to wear “mom jeans” all of a sudden, and he wear TEVA sandals with black socks to look like “proper parents”?

philippa on

Ashley looks cute, but personally I do not find pete attractive at all. He has terrible style. He just doesn’t do anything for me.
He makes a cute baby though.

Rachelsun on

Pete doesn’t have any makeup on! seen photos when he does, usually when he’s working but not here. the paps follow Everyone here in LA, even minor celebrities. When both parties in the couple are in the entertainment business the interest goes way up.add a baby and it quadruples. I mean why are you all here? yes, some of the celebs do call the paps but I don’t think these 2 do or need to.
Pete is handsome and Ashlee is pretty. bronx is a cutie who looks bigger than his mama.

Im 24, like ashlee and my husband is 24 as well. We live in the village, a very very artsy area of nyc. There’s a large population of young parents “hipster” I guess they’re called. The style of dress isn’t much different from what they’re wearing, but its something about how they’re wearing it. I dunno, here in nyc there’s a whole lifestyle attached to the style of dress and its a little weird because I doubt they live that kind of life.

I hope it doesn’t seem like im judging them. I guess its like people who were young adults when hippie/free love was new, and then seeing only the style part being adopted now..it makes you go “what do you know about being a hippie??”

gianna on

Bronx is so cute, he looks mostly like ashlee but with pete’s nose. Ashlee is very pretty and got skinny after the baby. Love that stroller too.

ang on

why do they need a toddler seat? saving it for later??

N on

Has anyone thought about the fact that it might be safer for a celeb to go ahead and tell the paps where they will be. As opposed to being followed and stalked. I mean, its just something to think about. However, if I were calling the paps, I would definitely look more made up than she does.

Jax on

Its hard to say who this kid looks like— he’s his own unique person!!! I bet we’ll see the release of an album by Bronx and his band in about 20 years—- WAY 2 GO!

Joy on

What a neat picture; a celeb family doing what the rest of us do…..I love it that Bronx isn’t wearing any shoes. I didn’t put shoes on any of my kids till each was a year old; I did put those cute socks on, though, when needed. The ones with elastic near the ankles; forgot what they are called.. It’s been awhile…
