Pete Wentz Talks About Bronx Mowgli on Ryan Seacrest

Pete Wentz Talks About His New Baby Boy Bronx

Pete Wentz took a day off from his new daddy duties to film FNMTV and get festive to tape an MTV Christmas special in LA on Monday. Though Pete has to get back to work, he had plenty to say about his first few days with his new family in an interview with Ryan Seacrest this morning. Here are highlights:

  • On the baby: "He's beautiful. He's perfect. We were instantly in love. It's impossible not to be!"
  • On the name Bronx Mowgli: "I feel weird — people have all these ideas of what it means now. I think it's kind of cool to leave the narrative the way it is. People are stoked or pissed or whatever . . . I don't think anybody knows the real story of why or how. We came up with the idea Bronx, we'd been throwing it back and forth a while ago. The Jungle Book is something me and Ashlee bonded over. It's really cool."
  • On Ashlee: "She's pretty much a saint. Right before she went into labor, I was pretty much like, 'Oh my God, I think I'm having a heart attack.' Natural things start going on in your body. My heart started beating really fast. You seen your wife in all this pain, and you really don't know what's happening. She's a amazing girl. She was like, 'I will make sure you're OK.' I didn't even stop to think, 'Well, you just had an epidural and you're about to have a baby!'"
  • On friends and family wanting to see the baby: "Yeah, it's like opening a new spot in LA. Everyone's trying to get in every night — they're like, 'No, I know Pete, kind of.' I'm like, you do not have a plus-one."

Being a new parent is a full-time job, but it sounds like Pete and Ashlee make a great team and are enjoying every moment so far. We can't wait to see the couple out and about showing off their little boy when he's ready for the world.

What if I fell in love with Mr. Right in Compton and we bonded over Dumbo, does that mean i should name my child Compton Dumbo?There should be a name generator for this. Insert name of city + Disney character = Baby name.[Disclaimer: I never really been to Compton and Dumbo is definitely not my favorite Disney character :) ]

There are some things that might be special for a couple but that doesn't mean it works for a child's name. We should start taking bets as to how many of these weirdly named children change their name when their 18... haha

Strange couple...strange name for the kid. Makes sense.

I can't wait to see the kid. His parents are attractive, so I can't wait to see his adorable little face! As for the name, it doesn't roll off the tongue very well, buuuuuuuuut...it could be worse.

If the Jungle Book had a special meaning for them, why didn't they do a themed nursery or something, and buy the books and movies for him instead of naming him that? Don't they realize that their cute little baby will eventually grow into an adult man? It's their personal business, and I'm sure this baby is very loved, but that kinda sux for the kid about his name.

I'm gonna name my child flatbush, i think it's a great name and I think it's unisex

I think "lower east side" would have been perfect. I can't believe they really DID name the child after the Jungle book. Oh wait, yes I can.

JudeC, Silvia/Silvana are real names where I come from, coming from the Latin for forest! In fact Transilvania (the native spelling) means exactly that, the land that's beyond the forest. Silvia was a common name among the Roman women.So you see, it's only a too common name, you better stick to Ulaanbaatar! :-P
