Aw. There's nothing cuter than a proud papa, and it sounds like Pete Wentz
is exactly that. The new father says his son is becoming a "big, smart and nice boy" who looks after his friends.
The rocker is very proud of 18-month-old Bronx Mowgli -- his child with wife Ashlee Simpson-Wentz
-- because he is so interested in helping others.
He told People
: "I've seen his empathy. If another kid falls down or if you burned yourself, he just hugs you or nods into you. Seeing empathy grow in him is awesome. He's a big, smart and nice boy."
Pete, 31, also revealed he has learned a lot about parenting from his own mother and father, Dale and Pete. He explained: "Basically, it's OK for your kid to make a mistake as long as you give them a safety net."
Ashlee, 25, recently revealed Bronx Mowgli is a fan of his dad's former band Fall Out Boy.
She said: "He's definitely heard Fall Out Boy and my music, too, but we play everything for him. He gets to choose his own kind of music."
