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.
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.
