Blink 182's Tom Delonge Becomes A Dad

Blink 182 singer/guitarist Tom Delonge became a proud papa on Monday (July 15) when his wife, Jennifer, gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Ava Elizabeth Delonge was born at 5:30 a.m. PT in La Jolla, California’s Scripps Hospital. She weighed in at approximately 7 pounds.

The timing couldn’t be better as the Blink wives, Jennifer and Skye Hoppus, the wife of bassist/singer Mark Hoppus, appear in this month’s issue of Pregnancy magazine. Skye Hoppus, who is due in August, is on the magazine’s cover.

In a recent interview, Hoppus revealed how he will handle parenthood and touring. “I’ve been married for almost two years now, a year and a half now or whatever, and it hasn’t changed anything. I know that once everybody starts having babies people may be, maybe a little more reluctant to go out on the road. But, like I said, we can bring our wives and kids on tour with us, so I don’t think that it’ll interrupt anything that badly.”

Blink 182 is enjoying some off time after releasing Take Off Your Pants And Jacket last year. The album was certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America ( news – web sites) for sales of 2 million copies.
