Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz have finally confirmed that they are expecting their first child, following weeks of rumours and question-avoidance. The couple have posted this official statement on Pete's site, Friends Or Enemies:
"While many have speculated about this, we wanted to wait until after the first trimester to officially confirm that we are expecting our first child. This is truly the most joyous time in our lives and we are excited to share the happy news and start our family."
All those rumours have made it seem like we've known for so long now, but I completely respect their decision not to announce it until after the first trimester. In fact I'm pretty excited there's a brand new celebrity baby on the way – Congrats to Pete and Ashlee!
