Pete Wentz: We’re Keeping Baby’s Sex a Surprise

Pete Wentz and Meagan Camper aren’t shopping for pink or blue onesies — the couple have decided to wait on finding out the sex of their baby.

“Don’t know yet. We’re waiting. I think we’ll probably do a surprise on this one,” the Fall Out Boy bassist told E! News at the Kentucky Derby on Saturday.

But Wentz, 34, who is already dad to 5½-year-old Bronx Mowgli with ex-wife Ashlee Simpson, says he is planning on expanding his family with Camper.

“What’s more exciting than having the pitter-patter of another little gremlin running around?” he says. “Now it will be two-on-two.”

The couple of more than three years have often discussed getting married, Wentz said during an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show in January.

“I feel really lucky,” he said. “It’s really interesting when you’re in a relationship with somebody who’s truly my best friend. I talk to her about everything.”

Finally…someone who gets the thrill of the surprise, that special moment.

Yeah fr you. As an ultrasound tech I am so tired of hearing people say “I HAVE to know the sex of the baby;” And then when you tell them it’s never 100% or isn’t what they wanted they get all upset.

@Amelia, oh please.

@Donnatex, how is it any less of a surprise when you find out at 20 weeks?

Its a boy I can tell you right now, b/c her face is thin and she is carrying low.

MBR on

He said the same thing about Ashlee.

me- I can’t speak for Donnatex of course, but to me finding out the gender before birth is like opening your presents before Christmas.

Anyway, good for them for not finding out! What’s better than getting to hear “it’s a boy!” or “it’s a girl!” in the delivery room?!

Waiting to find out the gender at birth is really fun and exciting! Having it spoiled at birth by FAMILY isn’t as fun.
I wish them happiness!

Um, who cares? Who are these ppl anyway? Yes, I know who he is…the former Mr. Ashlee Simpson….and who is she again?
