Pete Wentz has been a solo parent as of late because wife Ashlee, 25, has been busy preparing for her Broadway debut as Chicago’s Roxie Hart on November 30th.
“I just spent the last weekend – Mom was rehearsing for Chicago – being Dad without a nanny, without Mom, and didn’t burn the house down,” Pete, 30, told People magazine on Tuesday at the American Eagle Outfitters Times Square store opening. “So I’m pretty excited about that.”
The couple’s son, Bronx Mowgli, celebrates his first birthday on Friday, and his parents are throwing him a SpongeBob SquarePants-themed birthday party in Los Angeles.
“He likes Bob and he likes guitar – which he calls ‘itar,’ so we’re going to have a Spongebob party for him,” Pete said.
On the guest list? “A bunch of friends,” he said. “Like all the guys in Blink  and a couple friends that have kids [are coming over].”
Mr. Mom did admit that Bronx may need a babysitter on the night of Ashlee’s Broadway debut. Asked if he will be attending his wife’s debut, Pete said, “I think I will be.”
