Ashlee Simpson could give birth to her first baby any day now, but she and husband Pete Wentz say they have not decided on a baby name for their impending bundle of joy — but when they do, a name similar to John McCain or Barack Obama’s could be on the birth certificate. Or maybe even a name like dad’s.
“I want to meet [the baby] first,” Pete told Ryan Seacrest on “On Air with Ryan Seacrest,” Thursday on KIIS FM as the reason why they have not decided on a name .
The Fall Out Boy member said he’s taking baby name advice from a friend who, according to Pete, has an excellent approach to picking names for newborns.
“My friend said it – you’ve gotta have a baby with a name that could be a rock star or a senator, so he’ll get work either way,” Pete said.
Pete and Ashlee could be picking out that future rocker or politician’s name very soon, according to the 29-year-old.
“Ashlee is very pregnant,” he told Ryan. “I am on call permanently right now. She’s at the very end, and it could happen at any point.”
And, the sooner the better for Ashlee, who is in the midst of a few pregnancy inconveniences.
“She [feels] hot all the time,” Pete said. “I think she wants to just be not pregnant anymore… It’s a struggle to go up and down the stairs. Going out in public is insane.”
As for the gender of the baby, Pete told Playboy in September, “We know with 90 percent accuracy that it’s a boy.”
Ashlee and Pete wed on May 17 at the Simpson family home in Los Angeles.
