Pete Wentz is going to be a dad. Again! The 34-year-old Fall Out Boy bassist is expecting a child with girlfriend of nearly three years Meagan Camper. He shared the happy news via his Instagram on February 17.
“We’re super excited to announce we’re expecting a baby!,” Pete captioned a photo of himself and Meagan, hands intertwined and sharing a sweet smooch. Pete has his hand held tenderly over his model girlfriend’s belly, where there appears to be a slight bump.
Although the news might be a surprise to Fall Out Boy fans, a source tells People that Pete and Meagan have actually been “planning on this for a while.” They’re “really excited” for Pete’s son Bronx to have “a new little buddy.”
Bronx Mowgli, of course, is Pete’s 5-year-old son with ex-wife Ashlee Simpson. He and Ash split back in 2011. While Pete has confided how divorce left him paranoid and relying on pills, he seems in a much happier place now and says he and Meagan talk marriage “a lot.”
“I feel really lucky,” he added during a recent stop by The Wendy Williams Show. “It’s really interesting when you’re in a relationship with somebody who’s truly my best friend. I talk to her about everything.”
Now add baby names to that list!
