In his recent blog post on friendsorenemies.com Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz, with his girlfriend Ashlee Simpson in the background, announced that they plan to make something that cannot be illegally downloaded: a baby.

In the video the two of them, who've dated since mid-2007, say that the "release date" is july 2008, and then pose with Simpson's baby bump.

It will be interesting to see how Ashlee's father Joe Simpson handles the news. He has not handled his daughter dating someone with such ambiguous sexual preferences in the past, allegedly having banned him from attending the family's holiday celebrations.
