Ashlee Simpson Ross already has a teenager in her household, and he sure looks it, with the height to prove it!

The singer's eldest son, Bronx, who she shares with ex-husband Pete Wentz, is already a year into the angsty teenage years, and will celebrate his 15th birthday later this year.

In a new photo shared by his mom, her fans were left shocked at how grown up he looks already, and stands taller not only than his mom, but also his stepdad, Diana Ross' son Evan Ross.

Ashlee took to Instagram to share a glimpse into her middle daughter Jagger's birthday celebrations, unsurprisingly defined by the theme of the summer: the now-ubiquitous Barbie trend.

However, while it was little Jagger celebrating her seventh birthday, and she sure seems to have had a blast, it was her older brother's height that took up a lot of the attention.

"He's like 5' 9½", he towers over me… [his] voice is deep, he's a young man" Ashlee told Jennifer Hudson during a recent appearance on her talk show, and that: "He's really chill, though, so I'm lucky for that.

Her husband also told the outlet: "I think the fact that there is a lot of respect amongst all of us. That makes it easier," and that: "It's easy, we got really lucky with that."

Plus, he gushed about his stepson: "[He] is brilliant. I think he's, like, about to be the next George Lucas [with] his imagination."
