Disgraced former New York congressman Anthony Weiner’s annus horribilis has ended on a positive note: His wife, Huma Abedin, gave birth Wednesday to the couple’s first child.

Jordan Zane Weiner arrived 10 days before his Dec. 31 due date, weighing just over 7 lbs., the New York Post reports.

Abedin’s pregnancy was revealed back in June, at the height of a lewd photo scandal that lead to her husband’s resignation.

Weiner, 47, a Democrat who represented parts of Brooklyn and Queens, eventually entered treatment after admitting having online relationships with several women, and sending lewd photos of himself using social media and texting.
