Quote-unquote rock music performer. That's Pete Wentz. For awhile he was not dating Ashlee Simpson. Or maybe he was. He wouldn't say....

Meagan Camper is pregnant with Pete Wentz's child.

The Fall Out Boy bassist, 34, and his model girlfriend are expecting their first baby together, he announced Monday on Instagram via this adorable photo:

“We’re super excited to announce we’re expecting a baby,” he writes, and apparently it was a long time coming for the lovebirds who seem smitten.

“They’ve been planning on this for a while. And they’re really excited for Bronx to have a new little buddy,” a source close to the couple tells People.

“Meagan is a big sister and has a great relationship with Bronx," the insider said of Wentz's five-year-old son. "She’s naturally maternal so this is perfect.”

Wentz, whose previous marriage to Ashlee Simpson yielded his only child, Bronx Mowgli, hinted at a permanent future with his girlfriend, 24, last month.

There have been so many shocking celebrity divorces lately, even by Hollywood standards. Not just breakups, but actual marriages crumbling before our eyes.Seal, Heidi Klum

Some did surprise us more than others, but we can honestly say we didn't see any of these divorce filings - all from the last 12 months alone! - coming at all.

Which of these splits shocked you the most? Vote in our poll below ...

  • Kris, Kim Photo
  • Leah and Corey Split!
  • Michaele and Tareq Salahi Picture

10. Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard. The New Girl star and the Death Cab For Cutie member certainly seemed like a perfect match. Apparently not.

9. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. Okay, not all that surprising for myriad reasons we have been over ad nauseam on THG. But 72 days?! Idiots.

8. Tareq and Michaele Salahi. Like Kim and Kris, nothing about these two truly shocks us. Except her running off with Journey guitarist Neal Schon.

7. Leah Messer and Corey Simms. The stars of Teen Mom 2 seem so happy ... on the episodes that are still airing now! Well, not last night's. Still!

6. Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore. Seemed an odd fit at the start, but their split came totally out of left field. Now she's taking nitrous hits. Nitrous.

  • Seal and Heidi Klum Photo
  • Ashton and Demi Picture
  • Maria Shriver, Arnold Schwarzenegger

5. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. Apparently not the marrying type.

4. Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz. Remember them? We forgot too.

3. Katy Perry and Russell Brand. They're polar opposites, but were so crazy about each other and we thought it was just crazy enough to last forever.

2. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver. The heiress to the Kennedy political dynasty and the Governator seemed as rock solid as they come.

1. Heidi Klum and Seal. Still fresh, but as stunning as any other celeb divorce we can remember based on the couple's perpetual displays of love.

Pete Wentz and Michelle Trachtenberg were spotted in L.A. this weekend grabbing coffee ... and each other! Well, maybe. There wasn't exactly blatant PDA, but they sparked rumors that fireworks may be flying well beyond July 4.

In light of his pending divorce from Ashlee Simpson, could Wentz and Trachtenberg – who were an item years ago – be rekindling their romance?

Their outing comes shortly after Ashlee Simpson and Vincent Piazza of Boardwalk Empire were linked romantically. Perhaps both are moving on.

Trachtenberg's and Wentz's respective reps had no comment. It will be interesting to see if Pete and the recurring Gossip Girl star keep hanging out.

Despite their estrangement, there appears to be no bad blood between the parents as they took son Bronx to lunch in Studio City, Calif., recently.

Are Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz reconciling?

The question has been raised more than once since their surprise split and here we are again, wondering if the impending divorce has been called off.

The reasons this rumor keeps popping up are twofold and simple. Pete didn't want to break up and they've just looked so happy together ever since!

Dressed causally, with Wentz carrying 2-year-old Bronx on one hip, the young family stopped by the Beverly Glen Mall in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Pete n' Ash

"They held hands, and Pete especially looked very happy," a source says. "He had his arm around Ashlee. They definitely looked like a couple again."

"Ashlee kept smiling and lovingly leaned on Pete."

This isn't their first post-split outing, nor the first amicable one. They've continued to hang out as a family, even after she filed for divorce in February.

Sources tell People that the breakup is on good terms, and that being good parents to son Bronx is their priority. But is there hope of reconciliation?

There will be no reconciliation, but Ashlee Simpson does feel kind of terrible for Pete Wentz, and cares for their son enough to hang out with the guy.

That's basically your update on their relationship. Despite reports that they might be patching things up, she's moving on. Just on better terms.

Ashlee Simpson feels badly that Petz is hurting over their impending split, and that's why she spent time with him and their son. End of story.

Pete, Ashlee and Bronx Wentz about a month ago.

Pete is leaving town for a month-long series of concerts (a big part of why they split in the first place), and she wanted to boost his spirits before he left.

TMZ sources say Pete never wanted the divorce and would get back with Ashlee in a second, but she definitely wants out of the marriage. No going back.

They're both trying to stay on good terms for the sake of their son, Bronx, 2, and because they remain close. But Ash is determined to be a single lady.

Despite their divorce filing last month and a brewing battle over custody of son Bronx, Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz haven't been keeping their distance.

The two bonded over fast food - In-n-Out burger, natch - and seemed quite happy to be together, according to reports. But don't jump to conclusions.

It's unclear whether this portends a lasting reconciliation or just the amicable parting of ways that was rumored to be the case a month or so ago.

Is there any hope of reconciliation for Pete and Ashlee?

Last week, Simpson turned heads when she was seen in L.A. with a new guy, rocker Craig Owens, who affectionately put his arm around her shoulder.

A Simpson source told Us that the singer-actress and Owens, who happens to be a protege of Wentz, are simply "longtime friends." Makes you think.

The split has not been that contentious and it's been reported that Pete was not in favor of it to begin with. At least in his eyes, maybe it's not over.

Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson shocked the masses when they split.

Taking things a step further, the once-amicable divorce process is turning ugly. Pete does NOT want his soon-to-be-ex to have primary custody of son Bronx.

P. Wentz and A. Simpson

He's now taking her to court as a result. Wentz just filed legal papers in response to Ashlee's divorce petition ... asking the judge for JOINT custody.

Ashlee had checked the box that indicated she wanted primary physical custody of Bronx Mowgli, 2, who was born shortly after the couple got married.

Wentz also wants each party to pay their own legal fees, even though Ashlee had asked the court to make Pete foot the bill for both parties.

Ashlee didn't specify the official break-up date, but Pete says the two called it quits February 9, right after Pete's wife-less Super Bowl Trip.

Pete's constant touring is believed to be the reason for the breakup.

Were Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz living separate lives?

There was no third party involved and the recently separated pair is said to be splitting amicably, but since Ashlee filed for divorce last week, it's become clear that she was "extremely unhappy for a long time" with their arrangement.

Sources say Ashlee wanted out for a while. Pete had no idea.

Meanwhile, Pete was quite happy with the marriage and had no idea that Ashlee had reservations about Pete's constant touring and erratic behavior.

When Ashlee told Pete she wanted out, he begged her to change her mind, our sources say. Pete has been crying, asking Ashlee to give him a shot.

Sources say Ashlee isn't budging, however, nor is she likely to. A close friend says she feels they've been headed for divorce "for quite some time."

Sad, but hopefully for the best in the long run.

Ashlee Simpson filed divorce papers to end her marriage to Pete Wentz this week in a move that caught even cynical gossip readers by surprise.

The split is being called amicable, but it was her call, sources say, and due in large part to a series of arguments over Pete Wentz’s music career.

His commitment to touring with his band had been a sticking point between the two for some time now and finally led to Ashley filing for divorce.

The 26-year-old former singer was “fed up” with her husband being away from home for extended periods of time and wanted him to focus on being a dad.

“Ashlee and Pete would argue constantly about him touring,” a source told Radar. “Since she gave birth to Bronx she hated him being away from home."

"She wanted him to stop the band life and work more on producing music, so he could be around to concentrate more on being a husband and father."

“She hated him being away and said she felt like a single mother."

Don't expect a bitter fallout between Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz, who filed for divorce Tuesday. But sources also say it was not entirely mutual.

"It's very amicable. They're on very friendly terms and speaking – it's fine," a source close to the couple tells People. "They've just grown apart."

"They've been growing apart for quite some time."

Maybe so, but Wentz is getting divorced against his will, sources close to him tell TMZ, adding that he absolutely did not want to end the marriage.

Wentz tried talking Ashlee out of filing divorce papers, to no avail. She wanted out of the marriage, possibly due to the rocker's "erratic behavior."

Still, they're putting on a civil, united front for now.
