Pete Wentz Enjoys Making Babies

02/08/2010 at 02:00 PM ET

He’s only been a father for 14 months, but it’s a job rocker Pete Wentz says he’d love to try again.

“We are very lucky and hope to have another child at some point,” Pete — who has a son, Bronx Mowgli, with wife Ashlee Simpson-Wentztells PEOPLE during Hard Rock International’s Rock & Soul Party Friday night near Miami.

Adds the rocker: “We also like doing what you have to do to have a baby!”

“My child has taught me selflessness, patience and how to give this unexplained kind of love,” Pete, 30, says at the party, where he was asked to deejay by football agent Drew Rosenhaus. “I can’t explain this kind of love, but Ashlee, who is just an awesome mom, shares this feeling with me.”

As for his other job, bassist for Fall Out Boy, Pete says he’s looking for new challenges now that the fate of the band remains uncertain.

“I am solo tonight, but I won’t sing or perform a song,” he says. “I will just deejay. As for the breakup with the band, all I can say is that for now I want to chill.”

This is the second article I’ve read today on celebrity males who state they enjoy making babies or practicing to make a baby. Like this is a shocker or something? Of course men like it!

Yeah we get it – you, me and everyone else “likes making babies” we all know where babies come from and how they are made. It means he is not a virgin – are we suppose to be amazed? Sorry it just sounds pretentious to me (before anyone accuses me of “blowing it out of proportion) he made the comment about enjoying sex – duh everyone likes sex, does this need mentioning?
