The rumors were true. Ashlee Simpson is expecting a child, a source close to the singer told

Jessica Simpson’s younger sister, 23, recently announced that she and Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz, 28, are engaged. The source told that Simpson and Wentz are planning to wed in May at her friend’s house in southern California.
