New York Times: Anthony Weiner's Wife Is Pregnant

Jun 8, 2011

Citing three unnamed sources, the New York Times is reporting that Huma Abedin, Rep. Anthony Weiner's wife, is expecting the couple's first child:

Ms. Abedin, 35, is in the early stages of pregnancy, according to three people with knowledge of the situation.

The pregnancy, which the couple has disclosed to close friends and family, adds a new dimension to questions about the future of their marriage.

The news comes just days after Weiner admitted that he had sent lewd pictures of himself to a woman over Twitter. During the press conference, Weiner apologized to his wife and said they were planning on staying together.

"We have been through a great deal together, and we will weather this," he said. "I love her very much, and she loves me."
