Ashlee Simpson Gives Birth to Bronx Mowgli Wentz

It's a Boy For Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz!

Ashlee Simpson gave birth to a baby boy tonight, Bronx Mowgli Wentz, the first child for her and husband Pete Wentz. The couple had a labor false alarm this weekend, but apparently Ash went into labor yesterday. Their spokesperson said, "Ashlee, Pete and baby Bronx are all healthy and happy, and thank everyone for their well wishes!" Congratulations to the new family and we can't wait to meet little Bronx Simpson-Wentz and see his two rock star parents in action.

They named their kid after one of the 5 NY boroughs and a character from the Jungle Book? I really wish people would think before they name their children stupid names like this.

Ugh what is with these strange names? Congrats to them, but they should have given thought to a better name.

Well, my parent would have named me Mowgli if I was a boy...So it's not that crazy to me...My first name is Shakira, and in the Netherlands, where I live, that's still is a very strange name...So I am used (and I love) names that are a bit different!

All I gotta say is WOW!!!!!!!!!! I want to know what kind of drugs she got in the delivery room and then where where the nurses to stop Pete from taking a hit. I am really surprised that Joe didn't step in and interfere, he must have not gotten to the hospital before the baby's birth certificate was official. I'm sure he would've tried to talk them out of that name. All in all, very bad name to choose but still congrats to the family and I'm glad they have a healthy boy. Hopefully when Jennifer Garner pops next month she will reverse the trend with a normal baby name.

I don't know what all the fuss is about - I've been planning on naming my firstborn "Staten-Island Simba" for years now :D

Leene- I agree 100% with your comment. WHAT A RIDICULOUS NAME. It definitely sounds like they were trying to be "in" and very rock & roll but they just failed miserably. the bronx isnt a wonderful least paris & london are decent destinations lol and yes..Zuma is even a better name. hell I like Pilot Inspektor better

I agree that I think they tried to hard to fit in with the Hollywood crowd. I don't get these crazy names. Poor kids. Bronx Wentz doesn't even sound right not to mention affing Mowgli into the mix. haha

AWW CONGRATS ON THE BABY.. seemed like she was pregnant forever!!!!! But I'm glad hes a healthy baby.... but LORD help these celebrities name babies... somebody give them guidance on good names

thank you everyone - you have convinced me to not tell ANYONE the name I will choose for my baby because no matter what, everyone has an opinion. The name is fine. Mowgli is a middle name and middle names are SUPPOSE to be embarrassing. And I actually think it's cute. FYI the name Mowgli is the actual name in Rudyard Kipling's original 1894 Jungle Books, so it's not QUITE a Disney label..... But starangel82 - that's hilarious about the initials!! THAT I find unforgivable!!!

I couldn't agree more, Millzee. I normally like unusual names, but it's like they gave their child a "handle" here at popsugar instead of an actual name. Bronx Wentz? Seriously? Sounds like Bratwurst. No, even Bratwurst sounds better. They are absolute idiots, and as if Bronx Wentz wasn't all the proof we need...Mowgli??? (a name the ANIMALS gave to the boy in Jungle Book). How is a person supposed to go through life saddled with a name like BRONX MOWGLI WENTZ??? Even if he makes it through school without serious scars, the DMV, the Passport office, airport security... his whole life, people will be looking at him funny. They should seriously rethink this. Joe must be losing his influence.

The BMW initials are also incredible tacky.

I won't hate on the name since I think like any celebrity kid, you're usually destined to have an unusual name. Perhaps he was conceived in the Bronx. Not my favorite borough (Brooklyn has been taken by the Becks :) ) but the name is me at least. Mowgli is rather...random. Maybe they're huge Jungle Book fans? Either way, Congrats!

Yea! I'm really excited! But they couldn't have thought of a more horrible name!!

Am I the only one that doesn't think Zuma Nesta Rock is a bad name. I kinda of like his name. Knox and Pax are okay but they have a special meaning to them, not just Knox jello was my favorite of all time. Bronx is alright if she would have offset it with some normal like Alexander, but no they had to throw in Mowgli (which I can't even pronounce). I'm from the oldschool were you give your kid a regular name like John David and his nickname can be MowgliAppleInspectorPaxKnox. But it's their kid, I hope he's attractive.

Ay, yi, yi... There goes another poor celebrity offspring who was given an utterly ridiculous name. All these kids are going to need therapy just for their names alone... **rolling my eyes**
