Evan Ross doesn’t have to wait for the birth of his first child to experience the joys of parenthood. The newlywed is encountering such pleasures now. Ross tells Wendy Williams that being a stepfather to wife Ashlee Simpson’s son is affording him the opportunity to enjoy parenthood.
“It’s amazing,” says Evan. “I can’t tell you how incredible that child is. He’s unbelievable. He’s been a blessing in my life and I’ve learned so much from him. He was excited [when me and Ashlee got married] because he was my friend. We became like homies, buddies. He was excited. He was at the wedding and we were like, ‘This is as much your wedding as it is ours.’ And he loves Mama D, so it’s cool.”
The star also tells Wendy that he is excited about his wife’s expectancy. “[We’re expecting a baby girl], yeah,” he shares. When it comes to names, “We have a few ideas, but we’re keeping that for us. No, it’s not going to be [a Hollywood baby name like] Apple, Orange or anything like that. We got some ideas. It’s going to be different though.”
Ashlee and Evan wed last year. They are expecting their daughter to arrive this Fall.
