Los Angeles, June 1 (IANS) Rocker Pete Wentz says he lied to the media about his wife Ashlee Simpson’s pregnancy because he wanted to get a clean bill of health from doctors before making any announcement. Perezhilton.com reports Wentz saying: “Every woman, no matter who they are or what they do for a living, has the right to wait at least three months before sharing this very personal news. We wanted to wait until after the first trimester and get a clean bill of health from our doctors before confirming anything, just like any other couple.”

Wentz is the guitarist for the rock band Fall Out Boy and he married Ashlee, sister of pop singer Jessica Simpson, May 17. He says that being a boy, he felt protective towards both the mother and the baby.

“Being a boy I have no idea how to respond to such things and my first instinct was to protect her and the baby. It’s insane that you can’t let happy news brew in Hollywood. This wasn’t about press or anything. It was about the health of the baby and trying to find a way to be happy with what should be the most happy time of our lives in the middle of a press blitz.

“I apologise to anyone who felt misinformed but the truth is, the person and growing baby is who I felt most loyal to protect and defend.”
