Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and Pete Wentz could soon be bound for the Big Apple.


While snagging a few Billabong swimsuits at the Boost Mobile BBQ in Malibu and perusing puppies at the Hilton Pet Lounge, Ashlee, 23, told a pal she was "bored of Hollywood and looking to find a place in NYC."

The singer, who is expecting her first child with Fall Out Boy hubby Pete, 29, wants her baby to be grounded and believes an East Coast upbringing would make that possible.

"Plus," the friend adds, "They’re trying to find a place in Chicago as well so Pete can be close to his family!"
