Pete Wentz: 'I'm Becoming My Dad'
The rocker's time is spent commuting, picking up after his puppy and attending to his pregnant wife
“I’m becoming my dad, actually,” he said during an interview on Seacrest’s KIIS-FM radio show Thursday. “I get up at 7 a.m. to drive [to work] down Sunset with traffic that I complain about. And then I come home, and I have a pregnant wife and two puppies.”
Wentz, who is hosting the MTV show FNMTV Premieres, says that he spends his time “cleaning up puppy poop” and helping fulfill wife Ashlee Simpson-Wentz’s pregnancy cravings, which include “green olives on everything.”
But that’s not to say that Wentz, 28, isn’t loving every minute of his new life as a married man and expectant father. “It’s really, really, really, really exciting.”
He added: “When I’m in the doctor’s office, I freak out – it’s this crazy thing, this thing you made.”
To explain the feelings to his bandmate Patrick Stump, Wentz says he told him, “It’s like making a record, but knowing you’re going to mix it for the next 18 years of your life.”
Wentz has a lot to anticipate – including learning the gender of his baby. When asked about it, Wentz said he’s “hoping the doctor will be able to see something in the next couple of weeks.”
A rep for the musician has also denied reports that Wentz and his wife have registered for blue items at a popular L.A. baby boutique.
