Pete Wentz: Rocker Opens Up About His Children Possibly Inheriting His Bipolar Disorder

The rocker opens up about being bipolar and his children.

Pete Wentz is absolutely one of my favorite celebrity dads because he definitely doesn’t sugar coat life as a rocker and dad in the spotlight. With Pete, he definitely tells it like it is – especially when it comes to all the highs and all the lows. And that’s why he’s recently opened up about the possibility of his two children one day inheriting his bipolar disorder – something that he’s been battling with for years now.

Pete has two children (son Bronx Mowgli is with ex-wife Ashlee Simpson and Saint Lazlo is with his current partner Meagan Camper) and says that while fatherhood is definitely like taking “happy pills” he is also worried about their future and mental health, too.

As someone who deals with extreme anxiety issues at times, I can definitely relate to this. No one wants to see their children suffer the same way you do, right?
