“I love being a mother,” the singer/actress/Broadway star, 25, tells me during the Hershey’s Pieces Candies launch held at Hershey’s Times Square.
She welcomes the changes Bronx, 1, has brought to her relationship with Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz, 30, whom she wed in 2008.
“We’re together all the time,” Jessica’s lil’ sis says. “Bronx is definitely finding himself, and he’s getting his own personality, so hide-and-seek, and new little things. He does sign language, so that’s been fun.”
Staying spontaneous is something Ashlee strives to do, and Pete – who confessed to me in 2005 his celebrity crush was Ashlee although they only talked a few times – must consider himself lucky.
“Every Valentine’s Day is sweet,” she says. “Pete’s very creative, so he’s always coming up with something clever and surprising me. Hopefully I’ll surprise him this year.”
Pick up the OK! on newsstands now for more on Ashlee and Pete Wentz. The cover line is Brad Pitt/Jennifer Aniston/“I Still Love Jen But I Can’t Leave The Kids.” And, check out Hershey’s Pieces Candies, which are now available in flavors including Almond Joy (my favorite), York, Special Dark and the original Reese’s Pieces. They are amazing. Mmm.
