Former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner (WEE'-nur) of New York is ending a rough year with some good news.
A spokeswoman says the Democrat and his wife, Huma Abedin (HOO'-muh AB'-uh-deen), welcomed son Jordan Zain Weiner on Wednesday.
Weiner resigned from Congress in June amid outrage over sexually explicit emails and social media postings involving a former porn actress and other women. Republican Bob Turner won a special election to represent his Brooklyn-Queens district.
Abedin is a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Weiner and Abedin married in July 2010. Jordan is their first child.
