Huma Abedin, the 35-year-old wife of disgraced Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY), is in the early stages of pregnancy, according to the New York Times. Weiner admitted Monday that he tweeted a lewd photo to a college student and then falsely claimed his Twitter account had been hacked to cover up the incident.
Weiner also admitted to having inappropriate communications with about six other women over three years, but said that his flirtations were strictly over the Internet and telephone. He said none of his communications with the women developed into a physical relationship.
The liberal congressman originally lied about the incident because he was embarrassed by the situation and apologized for his deception.
He said that he and his wife, who have been married just shy of one year, had no intention of breaking up.
