Pete Wentz Gives Us the Details

New Dad Pete Wentz is talking to Details magazine about his wife Ashlee Simpson, quitting drugs, and their "happy accident." Here are some tidbits from the article:

On finding out Ashlee Simpson was pregnant:
“I was like, ‘Oh my God, this might be the worst possible time to have this conversation. I was definitely scared, just thinking, This is something that’s going to exist for the rest of your life and you can’t f*ck it up…It was a happy accident. But I think that certain things happen for a reason in your life, and maybe it was time to put the wild child in the cage.”

On his wife being more famous:
"When me and Ashlee are on the red carpet together, I'm like her purse," he jokes.

On quitting drugs:
“Dude, after Heath Ledger, I was just like, Man, this is not going to end up good…I realized I found my soul mate, and it made me want to be a better person. Now, with the baby, I want to be the best dad I can be.”

On people's perception of him:

"People, when they meet me, are always like, 'Aw, man. I was sure I was gonna hate you,'" he says. "So as long as you aren't, you know, Hitler, they wind up thinking, like, Oh, this dude's okay!"

On the possibility of a Newlyweds reality show:

"I get pitched, like, Newlyweds 2 once a week, dude," he says. "For like, fuck-you money. Move-to-an-island-after-this money. I just can't do it."
