Congratulations are in order for Anthony Weiner, 47, and wife Huma Abedin, 35.
The former New York Congressman and his wife welcomed son Jordan Zane on Wednesday (December 21), New York Post reports. The couple’s first child – who was due to arrive on December 31st – weighed in at just over 7 pounds, a source told the paper.
Weiner was forced out of office in June after it was revealed he had sent explicit pictures of himself to numerous women. At first he denied the claims, but as further pictures began to surface he admitted at a press conference he had “exchanged messages and photos of an explicit nature with about six women over the last three years.”
During the scandal, it was announced that Weiner and his wife of a year were expecting their first child. Despite the revelations, Abedin stood by her man.
“We will weather this,” Wiener told reporters of he and Abedin, a longtime aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. “I love her very much, and she loves me.”
