The Weiner and his Wife. - Dimitrios Kambouris/WireImageHere's another layer of awkwardness in the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal: the New York congressman's wife is pregnant with their first child, the New York Times reports. The paper cites confirmation from three anonymous sources who said Huma Abedin is in the early stages of pregnancy, and the couple's friends and family are aware of the news. While Weiner fends off a swarm of media, Abedin has left the country: she's currently in northern Africa with Hillary Clinton, for whom she's worked as an aide since the late '90s. (See more background on Huma here.)
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Clinton "thinks of Huma like another daughter. It just kills Hillary to see her friend and longtime key staff member be so horribly humiliated like that."
Update: Abedin has been spotted in the United Arab Emirates, wearing an appropriate color. And her wedding ring.
