Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin Are Now Parents Of Baby Boy, Jordan Zane Weiner

Finally some good news for Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin.

Abedin gave birth to a baby boy, Jordan Zane Weiner, Wednesday night, 10 days before the News Year's Eve due date. The little guy weighed in a little over 7 pounds.

The New York Post, naturally, welcomed Jordan Zane into the world with a front page headline reading, "A Little Weiner", "Baby boy for Huma and louse."

The baby boy's arrival caps off a tumultuous year for the Queens couple. In June, just shy of their one-year wedding anniversary, Anthony Weiner resigned from Congress after lewd photos he sent to women on Twitter surfaced.

Before the scandal, Weiner, an up-and-coming Democratic Congressman representing parts of Brooklyn and Queens and known for animated speeches delivered on the House floor, was considered a top contender to succeed Michael Bloomberg as mayor of New York City.

Since his resignation from Congress, however, his political life seems to have temporarily ended, and a Republican, Bob Turner, won the special election to fill his former Seat.

Abedin was an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to The Post, Clinton was among the guests at a Washington, D.C. baby shower last month for Abedin that included Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
