Ode to the end of the year! As we look back on some of the scandalous and not-so-scrumptious stories, one that really pops out is former Congressman Anthony Weiner. Ahem, Weinergate.
Well, perhaps the page is turning on disgrace as he has something to cheer about, a newborn baby boy. His wife, Huma Abedin, gave birth ten days before her due date, according to The New York Post. Jordan Zane Weiner tipped the scales over seven pounds.
In September, the newspaper reported the couple was prepping for a boy, merely months after his political career hit the skids after a Twitter debacle that forced him to leave Congress and dash his dreams of becoming the next NYC mayor.
Sources are saying if Huma hadn't gotten pregnant, she might have walked out on him. Although she is a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Ironically, former president Bill Clinton officiated at their wedding in Long Island, N.Y.
As for their baby shower, that was star-studded with politicians, too. Hillary was a guest at their Washington, D.C. baby shower last Saturday among Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
