Please welcome Jordan Zane Weiner, the new baby son of recently-mustachioed Anthony Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin. The Post reports that the “wee democrat” was born yesterday 10 days ahead of his due date and weighed in at just over seven pounds. This is happy news for a family that’s had some rough times in the last year due to Weiner’s inability to not tweet lewd photos of himself to random women on the Internet.
Abedin’s pregnancy became public information back in June during the height of the scandal.
The Post notes that the couple has been spotted out and about a few times since Weinergate broke, including on a trip to Paris and in out in Forest Hills, Queens, where they were “overheard discussing boys’ names.” We’ll add to the list their “miserable” Saturday outing back in July.
A baby shower was held for Abedin in D.C. on Saturday. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and Hillary Clinton were all in attendance.
