Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz’s son looks just like his famous parents

Before there was Kourtney and Travis, there was Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz. Back in the day, Simpson and Wentz were probably the coolest couple in Hollywood. Simpson’s debut album, Autobiography, was released in 2004 and his long-lasting cultural influence shouldn’t be underestimated. The album’s edgy pop/punk and, well, autobiographical style would directly influence artists for years to come, most recently Olivia Rodrigo and her debut album Sour, per Hustle.

Point is, Simpson was very cool, so it was particularly cool that in 2006 she started dating Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz. The couple later married in 2008. However, like most Hollywood marriages, it wasn’t meant to be. Wentz and Simpson split after just three years of marriage, according to the LA Times. However, in those three years they had a son, Bronx, who has lived a very private life ever since.

The Bronx, now 13, appeared in one of his mother’s recent Instagram posts and his resemblance to his famous parents is striking.

Bronx has grown up

“London dinner dates with my loved ones,” Ashlee Simpson captioned an Instagram carousel of a night out with her family on June 27. Loyal fans were thrilled that Simpson snapped the first photo to a picture of herself and her now very grown son, Bronx Wentz, whom she shares with Pete Wentz. The Simpsons’ celebrity friends flooded the comments. “Omg Bronx is a full adult,” wrote Marissa Morino. “Oh my Bronx looks so beautiful and grown up,” added Simpson’s sister-in-law, Tracee Ellis Ross. “We were just together. As!”

Simpson is now married to Evan Ross, who the Bronx reportedly has a close relationship with. For his 13th birthday, Ross posted a sweet tribute to the teenager on his Instagram. “BRONX HAPPY BIRTHDAY KING!! LOVE U,” he wrote under a carousel depicting the family partying at an amusement park. Pete and Evan share a mutual respect which helps ensure their co-parenting situation runs smoothly. “My relationship with Pete was amazing,” Ross said during a Watch What Happens Live appearance in 2018. “He’s an amazing dad. He knows I love his son very much, but it’s his son.”

Since tying the knot in 2014, Simpson and Ross have been busy building a family of their own. Together they share Jagger and Ziggy, born in 2015 and 2020 respectively. It seems the pair always had a big brood ahead of them. “I grew up in a big family,” Ross told WWHL. “I think it’s a beautiful thing.”
