Pete Wentz On Breast Milk & Sympathy Weight Gain

Pete Wentz, new dad to 1-month-old Bronx Mowgli, revealed that wife Ashlee Simpson’s breast milk tastes “soury” and “weird” on SIRIUS’ The Morning Mash Up! on Monday. Us reports that the 29-year-old father may not be a fan, but Bronx Mowgli is: “The baby loves it, it’s the only thing he’s had a chance to have.”

Pete also revealed that Ashlee isn’t the only Wentz that gained some pregnancy weight: “I gained 10 pounds at least. I usually hang out around 135, 134, I go up to about 140, and when I hit 148, I get fat face.” He added, “I’m working out a little bit, trying…I mean last night I decided to eat Virgil’s [BBQ] at midnight which is never a good idea…I’m feeling that a little bit today. For the most part, we’re going on walks – that kind of stuff. I think it comes off easier for her because she gets to breast feed and I don’t have the luxury of doing that.”

Pete also shared his “scared daddy moment.” The new dad said, “I had a scared moment right before she went into labor – I thought I was having a heart attack for real, like my heart started doing like a weird thing. But, the first time I held him…I just knew everything was perfect. Like everything was good – it was like Legos, you know what I’m saying, like it all fit together.”

Pete said he’s hoping to have more children in the future. “I want to have six now. I mean not six specifically, but I want more…I can’t imagine that we’re stopping, you know what I’m saying? This is like a Journey song, it’s like the chorus is just going to keep coming.” He added that little Bronx is destined to be a musician in the making. “You know he’s already got a little bass, he has a little piano.”

And what about Bronx’s first Christmas? Pete said, “I don’t think at one they matter that much to him, but they matter a lot to me, so I’m going to be there sweating it out, putting things together…the night before Christmas because I know that’s what my Dad did and I know that’s what I want to do.”

    I absolutely despise these two. NOBODY cares what they have to say, yet they think they’re SO important. Honestly, they are NOT contributing to society in any meaningful way. Not to mention they both lack any real talent. I can’t stand listening to Pete drone on and on like people actually care.

    Honestly….I think that he is just not that smart. Come on, talking about your wife’s breast milk like that? Very strange to think that anyone would want to hear him criticize breastmilk which is like criticizing his wife….also he sounds a bit naive about things as well. Discussing 6 kids and putting together toys on Christmas for a 1 month old? I think he just likes to hear himself talk and loves the attention he is getting b/c he had a child. (note: lots of people are capable of having children not just him and his wife)

    yEAH i didnt know who he was until they started dating. Alot of the things he says annoys me..

    p.s. Pete no one wants to know or cares how ur wifes breast milk taste.

    I totally agree with you both!! I’m glad someone else shares my sentiments!! I especially agree with Betsy who says the he talks about how much he likes attention. Again, because they wouldn’t be on anybody’s radar if he didn’t talk about them!

    I have to agree with everyone else. I’m no Pete/Ashlee hater but the way he shares intimate things with the entire world. Very trashy & quite frankly if I were his wife I’d give him a talking to. I agree he likes to hear himself talk. He is basking in the limelight for as long as he possibly can.

    Ugh, this boy really need a big whoop-a$$ slap! if I were the wife, he will be sleeping in the dog’s house til the kid is 18. First, it was their sex life, now the breast milk, TMI much?
