Ashlee Simpson, Pete Wentz

Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz could find themselves facing another round of twin rumors.

Pete’s buddy, hip-hop artist Tyga, says that the parents-to-be are expecting not one, but two bundles of joy.

“They’re having twins,” Tyga said in an exclusive interview yesterday at the House of Hype’s pre-VMA barbeque. “They’re really happy.”

Either Tyga spilled the beans or he’s repeating an internet rumor that Pete started earlier this summer…

In June, Pete sent the internet into a tizzy when he referred to his and Ashlee’s unborn baby as “them” during an Arizona radio interview. He quickly denied they were having twins, explaining to blogger Perez Hilton that he was just trying to be vague about the pregnancy.

Pete, 29, and Ashlee, 23, were married on May 17 at her parents’ L.A.-area home. Eleven days later the young rockers announced that Ashlee was preggers.

Pete’s band Fall Out Boy is up for a VMA tonight for Best Rock Video for the video for their cover of Michael Jackson’s “Beat It.”

Reps for the Pete and Ashlee did not immediately comment.
