Pete Wentz Opens Up About Baby Name (Sort Of)

Petey Pete called into the Ryan Seacrest show on Tuesday morning to chat about his child's name, Bronx Mowgli Wentz. He gave a really weak explanation for the "Mowgli" part: "The Jungle Book was something that me and Ashlee bonded over. It's a cool name." Um, WTF? Like, vodka was something that my ex and I bonded over, but it's not like we were going to name our child Belvedere. (We planned to name him Horseman, but that's a different story.) Enjoying the same book is not an adequate reason to name a child Mowgli.

Pete refused to talk much about the Bronx part of the equation. He should have been like "Well the Bronx has always been our favorite place to score coke," but instead he said, "We came up with the idea Bronx. We've been throwing [ideas] back and forth a while. It's kind of cool to just leave the narrative what it is. People are stoked or pissed or whatever. And you're like, you know what: I don't think anyone really has the real story."

Regardless, congrats to the happy family!
