The life of a celebrity’s baby.Ashlee Simpson-Wentz’s and Pete Wentz’s baby is five days old, and he is already in the middle of a controversy regarding his name, Bronx Mowgli Wentz.As I noted when the baby’s name was announced, the middle name is related to a Disney character.
"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."
Then Pete proceeds to give a little bit of an explanation.
"We came up with the idea Bronx, we’d been throwing it back and forth a
while ago," he says. As for the origin of the middle name? "The Jungle Book is something me and Ashlee bonded over. It’s really cool."
"Cool" is one word to describe this name.I wonder if Bronx’s classmates will agree? And if, by chance, Bronx’s peers don’t agree, I hope Pete and Ashlee have a more complete narrative for their son!
