Father-to-be and Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz, who was due to appear live on CNN‘s Larry King Live show last night to discuss his opposition to the passage of Proposition 8 in California, had to cancel his appearance and immediately posted an announcement on his official websites (HERE and HERE) explaining why he was unable to appear on Larry King Live:
due to breaking news and scheduling conflicts i will not be appearing on larry king live tonight, though i am a big fan of the show and look forward to appearing on it in the future. i also look forward to the chance to continue supporting civil rights and speaking out against the passing of proposition 8 and others like it (im looking at you arizona and florida) whenever and wherever i can.
Due to the timing of this “breaking news” it is believed that Pete pulled out of his Larry King Live appearance POSSIBLY due to the fact that his heavily pregs wife Ashlee Simpson went into labor and MAY have given birth to their first child:
At this point, there is no further information or confirmation at all that Ashlee gave birth … or even went into labor … but it seems very likely that that was the “scheduling conflict” that came up at the last minute. Here’s hoping that things are going well for Ashl33n and that I can soon announce the birth of their bouncing baby boy or girl.
