Joe Simpson says his while daughter Ashlee may only be 24, finding out she was pregnant turned her into a full-fledged grown up!
“The day she found out she was pregnant, she became a woman,” Joe Simpson tells PEOPLE. “She’s concerned about what she eats and how she prepares for the child and [details like], is the baby’s room ‘green’ enough?” he explains. “It’s a transformation you never expect as a parent – you pray for it, but never expect it. She’s ready for this baby!”
And dad-to-be Pete Wentz is ready, too,
“Pete is the king of details, so he wants to make sure the baby’s room is just right – the right colors, the right sheets, the right look,” Simpson gushes. “He’s a great parent.”

Even Ashlee’s big sister Jessica is eager for the baby to come – so eager he’s having a hard time keeping her on tour!
“I’m trying to keep her out there until the baby’s born,” he adds. “I have a couple of other dates I need her to play!”
In fact, the only one not ready is Joe himself, who at 50, is “too young to be a grandpa! But I am excited.” And the only thing Joe can reveal about the baby’s name?
“I can tell you it’s not Joe. I wished, I tried, but it didn’t work.”
