Evan Ross says he and wife Ashlee Simpson have some “cool” possible names picked out for their baby girl.
When Wendy Williams asked Ross on Thursday whether potential names are in the out-there realm of “Apples and Oranges,” an apparent chide of Gwyneth Paltrow-Chris Martin spawn Apple’s unusual moniker, he chuckled, “No it’s not going to be any Apple, Orange, anything like that.”
“We have some cool ideas. It’s going to be different though,” he added.
Ross, 26, and Simpson, 30, tied the knot in August at his mother Diana Ross’ Connecticut estate, and Evan says he’s formed a tight bond with Simpson’s 6-year-old son, Bronx, from her first marriage to Pete Wentz.
“It’s amazing,” Ross gushed about his having a stepson on Thursday’s episode of “The Wendy Williams Show.” “I can’t even tell you how incredible that child is. It’s unbelievable. He’s been a blessing in my life and I’ve learned so much from him.”
When Williams fished for any hint of familial rifts, Ross added with a smile, “[Bronx] is my friend. We became like homies. We’re like good buddies. He was so excited when we got married. I was [like] this is as much your wedding as ours. And he loves Mama D.”
This is Simpson and Ross’ first child together. News broke in December of Simpson’s pregnancy, but the couple hasn’t revealed her due date.
