Pete Wentz shared that these days he often speaks to his unborn child and reads books about fatherhood.
“I talk to it all the time,” he told People magazine Saturday at the Ultimate Fighting Championship 86 afterparty in Las Vegas. “The Expectant Father tells you that the woman, when she speaks, the baby hears her all the time. And the father’s voice isn’t familiar unless you talk to it, so I talk to it all the time.”
The Expectant Father by Armin Brott is just one of the books that Pete is reading to prepare himself for the birth of his first child.
“It tells you your partner’s moods month-by-month and week-by-week,” said Pete, who is also getting advice from both his father and Joe Simpson. “It tells you why you’re feeling the way you are, how you can feel more involved in the pregnancy.”
And while Ashlee often has cravings for ice cream, pickles and green olives, everything is “going well,” shared Pete, who performed a two-hour DJ set at the House of Blues following the UFC match.
In fact, he is already hinting at more children in the future: “This is the first one so we’ll have to base the next one on how we do on the first one.”
