Pete Wentz’s son has threatened to “punch” his next birthday cake.
The Fall Out Boy bassist has four-year-old Bronx with ex-wife Ashlee Simpson.
Whereas many kids can’t wait to grow up, Pete’s little one has other ideas – and has made an unusual plan to help him stay young.
"He is definitely at an age where the imagination and the reasoning are just firing on a level [I can't understand]. I don't know if I ever had an imagination that good...When he's describing things or saying things, it's mind-blowing to me,” the proud father told Us magazine.
"He was like, 'I don't want to be grown up.’ He's like, 'On my next birthday, I'm going to punch my birthday cake.' So he doesn't have to grow up. But I'm like, 'That's genius!' He doesn't even know how amazing that is! I'm like, 'You should punch your birthday cake! It's your birthday! Do it!'"
The rocker realises growing up is, of course, inevitable for Bronx.
For now, the 33-year-old star can only guess how his son could turn out.
"The thing that I've noticed is [that] a lot of kids tend to rebel against whatever exists [in their own families]," he explained. "I have friends who are in bands, and their kids are like hippies or whatever. So [Bronx will] probably be into math and be like, 'I'm not into tattoos.' And it's like, now I've got to figure out how to really do some of this essential math.”
