Pete Wentz Tries To Explain Why He Named Son 'Mowgli'

Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson welcomed their first child into the world last week, and Wentz says there's a simple reason for giving his son the name Bronx Mowgli Wentz.

"The Jungle Book was something that me and Ashlee bonded over. It's a cool name," Wentz told Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday about the inspiration for the name.

But he wasn't so forthcoming on the reasoning behind the first name: "We came up with the idea Bronx. We've been throwing it 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."

Asked by Seacrest about whether the BMW name was actually a joke, Wentz insisted: "No, no, no, it definitely is his name, but I don't think anybody knows what the real story is of why or how."

"Right before she went into labor, I was like, 'Oh, my god, I think I'm having a heart attack,'" he said of how he was more scared than Ashley was.

"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."
