No matter what you do, your kid is going to like one parent more than the other!
Do you ever feel left out when your baby wants to spend more time with your partner than you? Well, that’s exactly how Fall Out Boy‘s Pete Wentz feels about his 22-month-old son, Bronx, and his wife Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, 25! “He’ll call me up and be like, ‘All he [Bronx] wants to do is hang out with Ashlee,’” Pete’s good friend Blink-182 bass player Mark Hoppus told HollyBaby.com exclusively Sept. 16 at the launch party for Fuse’s new show A Different Spin with Mark Hoppus at MPD restaurant in NYC.
“I’ll be like, ‘Yeah, for the first couple of years, the kid is all about Mom. And then after that you will get a chance with your son,’” Mark said of how he advised Pete, 31, to handle the situation. ‘”Just hang in there.’”
“Pete and I talk about raising kids all the time,” Mark continued. “His kid is significantly younger than mine, so I’m guiding him.”
And in the same way that Mark watches out for Pete, his 8-year-old son, Jack, plays an “older figure role” in Bronx’s life as well. “Jack’s a lot older, so he kind of takes care of Bronx,” Mark stated proudly.
Aww! It must be nice for Pete to have someone like Mark that he can go to when he has parenting questions. HollyMoms — do you have someone like that in your life as well?
