pete wentz and ashlee simpson-wentzPete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz are reportedly planning to ask John Mayer to be a godparent to their first child when it’s born later this year.

The couple got to know John when he was dating Ashlee’s sister Jessica Simpson but even though that relationship didn’t pan out, they’ve stayed good friends and think that he’ll be a good role model for their baby girl, who is due in October.

A source close to the couple explained: “Pete and John have been spending a lot of time together lately and they get on so well.

“They are firm friends. John gets a bad rap and is always portrayed as a bad boy but he’s got a heart of gold.

“Pete and Ashlee know that and they think he would make a great godparent.”

“But they are holding back asking him at the moment because they are not sure how Ashlee’s sister Jessica would feel about her ex having such a strong link to her new niece.”
