Simpson expecting


Newlyweds Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz say they are expecting a baby. “While many have speculated about this, we wanted to wait until after the first trimester to officially

confirm that we are expecting our first child,” read a statement on Wentz’s blog. “This is truly the most joyous time in our lives and we are excited to share the happy news and start our family.”

Simpson, 23, and Fall Out Boy bassist Wentz, 28, exchanged vows earlier this month at Simpson’s parents’ Los Angeles-area home. The couple began dating in fall 2006.
