Pete Wentz on Daddy Deja Vu

09/02/2009 at 04:00 PM ET

Like other celebrity dads before him, Pete Wentz is stepping up to the parenting plate. With wife Ashlee Simpson-Wentz busy filming Melrose Place, the 30-year-old Fall Out Boy rocker has taken a break from touring to be with son Bronx Mowgli, 9 months. Echoing the sentiments of at-home parents everywhere, he observes to USA Today that,

“When I’m at home, I feel like sometimes I have a 9-to-5 job. You became your dad. Two dogs, a wife and a kid. Stuck in traffic.”

Not that he’s complaining! “All I really like to do is hang out with Bronx,” Pete admits. “He kind of has a new noise or a new thing every day. He’s really funny and is going through a lot of discovery.”

As is, apparently, the proud papa. Pete is poised to unveil his brand new five-issue comic book miniseries Fall Out Toy Works on Wednesday; While Ashlee is supportive, Pete says that her enthusiasm for the genre is minimal. “I don’t think [comics are] really up her alley,” he explains. “Our tastes come together in really weird areas, and I don’t think this is one of them.”

Whether Bronx is someday impressed by Pete’s debut is a much more pressing concern, however. Adds Pete,

“I think after you have a kid, all of a sudden you want to do things that your kid can see.”

I love hearindg Dads talking about their babys and wifes, I just love it.

I’m such a fan of Pete and FOB I love hearing him talk about Bronx (or Bx)

He posted this on his blog, I think Bronx looks like Pete. Especially the cheeks. No matter who he looks like hes a cutey for sure.

Bronx is such a cutie pie! Personally, I think he looks just like Ashlee’s dad and favours her side of the family, but I love his chubbs!

Does anyone else ever get the feeling that Pete loves being a dad to Bronx but not so much a husband to Ashlee?

Pete Wentz has quickly become one of my favorite celebrity dads. I follow him on Twitter and he seems so incredibly in love with his baby boy. Too cute!

Rachelsun on

No, I get the impression he loves his wife, Ashlee and his son. love FOB, Folie a Deux it is a great album. Bronx is cute and does favor a simpson more. Wishe he looked more like Pete!

Rachelsun- I agree! It’s very likely that Pete made his comment about Ashley not being into comics in a joking way. Also, it’s hardly a requirment to love everything that your spouse does. My mother certainly doesn’t love everything my father does, and vice versa, but they love each other very much just the same!🙂

Glad to see he enjoys his son, but it irks me when people refer to a child as a “kid” or children as “kids”. I’ve always just thought that it was an odd way to refer to children, and besides a kid is a young goat…it’s an informal way to refer to a child. Ok done with my rant!
