“I think after you have a kid, all of a sudden you want to do things that your kid can see,” Pete tells USA Today.
Along with the band and the books, Pete has another job that keeps him on his toes: Being a stay-at-home dad to little Bronx while mom Ashlee Simpson is back to work on Melrose Place.
“When I’m at home, I feel like sometimes I have a 9-to-5 job,” he admits. “You became your dad. Two dogs, a wife and a kid. Stuck in traffic.”
Not that he minds, of course. The 30-year-old boasts that his baby boy is excellent company.
“All I really like to do is hang out with Bronx,” Pete says, adding, “He kind of has a new noise or a new thing every day. He’s really funny and is going through a lot of discovery.”
