Bronx Mowgli Wentz is the son of popular American singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist Pete Wentz and singer and actor Ashlee Simpson. He was born a few months after Pete and Ashlee’s marriage. Bronx’s parents are ardent fans of 'Disney' and have thus used 'Disney' themes for most of their life events. Bronx’s middle name is inspired by the lead character of the children’s adventure book 'The Jungle Book.' His parents got divorced in 2011.
