Bronx Mowgli Mentz isn’t your typical baby name, but Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz decided to use this name for their first son due to necessity.
On Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, Wentz revealed, “The Jungle Book was something that me and Ashlee bonded over. It’s a cool name.”
Although Wentz revealed the meaning of their son’s second name, he refused to open up about their week-month-old son’s first name, Bronx. “We came up with the idea Bronx. We’ve been throwing [ideas] back and forth a while. It’s kind of cool to just leave the narrative what it is. People are stoked or pissed or whatever. And you’re like, you know what: I don’t think anyone really has the real story.”
Pete also reveals how Ashlee handled the birth better than he did, saying, “Right before she went into labor, I was like, ‘Oh, my god, I think I’m having a heart attack. My heart started beating real fast. You see your wife is in all this pain. And I don’t know what’s happening right now. She took care of me and made sure I was okay and then went into labor. That’s why she’s a saint.”
