Ashlee Simpson and her husband Pete Wentz were overjoyed to welcome their baby boy into the world this week. Bronx Mowgli Wentz was born Thursday night at 7 pounds, 11 ounces and 20.5 inches long.

“Proud new parents Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz welcomed new son, Bronx Mowgli Wentz, late this evening,” the rep tells Us. “Ashlee, Pete and baby Bronx are all healthy and happy, and thank everyone for their well wishes!”

Ashlee Simpson first told Us Weekly that the couple were having a baby back in April. “Carrying a child is the most inspiring, emotional, amazing experience of my life,” Simpson wrote on her MySpace page. “My weight and my pant size are the absolute last thing I am concerned about. I am only concerned with having a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.”

Pete Wentz made sure that everything went smoothly for his pregnant bride by running errands to pick up her favorite foods. As she grew closer to her due date Wentz said that Simpson couldn’t wait to have the baby.

“She’s excited, she’s anxious… I think she wants it to be over,” he recently said on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS-FM radio show. “She just wants to not be pregnant any more. She wants to have it because it’s, like, a struggle to go up and down the stairs … going out in public’s insane.”

We can only imagine the excitement from Ashley’s sister Jessica who said that she couldn’t wait to be an aunt. “I’m going to spoil the kid rotten, that’s for sure,” she said. “I think my sister’s going to be pretty strict, actually, because she’s been so good throughout her pregnancy.”
