A disgraced former congressmember is back in the spotlight — only the focus is now on his new baby boy.
Anthony Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin — aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — welcomed son Jordan Zane Weiner to the world on December 21, according to multiple published reports.
Jordan Zane — the couple’s first child — may be the first piece of good news Weiner has received since a sexting scandal landed the embattled former congressmember in hot water, forcing him to resign this past June. Weiner became embroiled in controversy after he admitted to accidentally Tweeting a picture of his crotch that he meant for a direct message. He initially claimed his Twitter account was hacked.
Then, more recently, on Wednesday, December 28, RadarOnline.com reported to have exclusively learned — from proposals for a tell-all book — that according to one of Weiner’s mistresses, Weiner allegedly expressed interest in wanting a threesome with another man.
Still, the pair did not split up. In fact, in a short prepared statement declaring his resignation, Weiner thanked and apologized to his family and supporters, specifically his wife.
“[She] has stood with me through this entire difficult period, and I owe so very much [to her],” he said.
Now, six months later, the proud parents have announced their new “sparkling wonder.”
According to The New York Post, Weiner took to email, alerting friends and family members about the arrival of Jordan Zane, who weighed in at 7 pounds and 5 ounces.
“Did I mention his mom is amazing? We love you for welcoming him,” Weiner said in the email about his wife.
