Ashlee Simpson-Wentz hit Jimmy Fallon‘s couch in NYC on Thursday night (September 3) to promote her new TV series Melrose Place. This marked the first time the controversial singer has been away from her 9-month-old son Bronx Mowgli.
The 24-year-old mother-of-one is pictured above on her way to NBC’s Rockefeller Center. Ashlee told Jimmy it was papa Pete’s first time caring for baby Bronx solo.
“It’s actually Pete’s first time being home alone with him while I’m gone. He’s doing good, he’s sending all these pictures.”
Given the devastating fires tearing through Southern California, the couple’s home lost power while Pete was on daddy duty.
“Our house blacked out, but he managed to get through it,” the 7th Heaven star said.
Reportedly, the Simpson-Wentz family will be moving away from Tinseltown because they want to give their adorable tot a chance at a “normal” life.
“Once you have a kid it’s a little bit different. You’re more protective. You want them to have a normal life, or as normal as possible,” Wentz said. “We’re going to figure out moving somewhere that’s a little less (public). But we still got to be close enough where we can work. There’ll be too many paparazzi and you’ll get mobbed. You’re just trying to protect your wife or your kid. It’s just frustrating.”
