Ashlee Simpson is Pregnant

Ashlee and Pete Finally Confirm Their Pregnancy!

Well, well, well. After over a month of speculation and playing coy with us, Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz have confirmed that they are expecting their first child. They posted this official statement on Pete's site, Friends Or Enemies:

"While many have speculated about this, we wanted to wait until after the first trimester to officially confirm that we are expecting our first child. This is truly the most joyous time in our lives and we are excited to share the happy news and start our family."

Between all the rumors and quick wedding, we can't say this is a big shock, but we're always ready to welcome a brand new celebrity baby to the mix. Congrats to the newlyweds and we'll be looking forward to seeing this musically gifted little one!

Who honestly cares about these two, their marriage, or their baby. When it gets here they will pimp it out for money just the same. The untalented will do anything for money in Hollywood.
Too young, too old?! We females just can't get it right can we? I get lectured about how I need to hurry and have kids, and why am I waiting so long, at 22. Yet, others believe they're too young? Are we all supposed to wait until we have trouble conceiving because we are no longer as fertile as we used to be? Or are we all supposed to have kids as teenagers when we're still kids ourselves. How about this, keep your opinions about what the right age to have children to yourself. Noone wants to listen to people tell you when the right time for us to have children is! Anyways! I'm glad they waited until after the 1st trimester to confirm anything! That's what you are suuposed to do. Not run out and tell the world as soon as you get a positive test back!

congrats to them b/c regardless this means a little person is coming...that aside, I don't get these weddings b/c obviously these chicks pop birth control in the beginning of their career (I would think- gaining access to hot a@$$ hollywood boy-sl*ts) so the "oops" factor of the rushed 1st trimester wedding is all for media...all IMO

I'm really happy for them! I just wish the media would back off on the whole pregnancy issue. As someone who has had several people in my family suffer miscarriages and even one who lost a child due to complications shortly after birth, this strikes a chord with me. Celebrities are human beings who should be afforded the right to privacy about things like this until they are ready to say so themselves, which is typically after the first trimester. One of my relatives was so excited to be pregnant with their first and told everyone right away only to lose the baby during miscarriage a few weeks later... that was devastating to them and then everyone had to be told and for even 3 or so months later acquaintances (family friends, friends of friends mostly) would ask about the baby and my relative would have to tell them the bad news, which was devastating as you can imagine. I can't imagine what that would be like to go through publicly with millions of people knowing... People should think about that before reporting on it or being so negative i.e. they only want attention for an album, etc...

It was smart of them to wait until after the 1st trimester. I bet they'll have a cute kid even though I don't really like either of them.

I knew it! I mean that pic of her and jess at her wedding told it all. Ash's stomach looked so big. And then in all the other pics, she always had something to block her stomach.

Oh also, they are not too young. Young yes, but not too young. Pete is actually my ideal age to start having children. Me and my SO plan to have our first kid somewhere around when I'm 27 and he's 28. We only plan on having 2 and we plan to be done somewhere around 32. Clearly there are a lot of variables here but I agree with the poster who says it's good to have kids young. I plan to have my kids out the house by the time I'm 50 not changing their diapers!

It's definitely understandable that they waited until after the first trimester. Most people do, and should!

How strange is it for a woman who has had significant facial plastic surgery to have a child, since could have some of her pre-op features: Or, more tragically, Pete's.
