NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – It’s a boy!

Anthony Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin welcomed their son Jordan Zain Weiner Wednesday.

Jordan’s arrival provides some good news for the former congressman, who resigned in disgrace in June after lewd pictures he sent to at least six women surfaced. Weiner initially denied sending a salacious photo over Twitter, saying his account had been hacked. He then modified his story, calling it a prank. In short order, though, the true scope of the situation became clear.

“Weinergate,” as it came to be known, even prompted a company to build an anatomically correct Anthony Weiner doll.

Abedin works as an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Jordan is the first child for the couple, who were married in 2010.

    Who, other than his wife should care who he sends pictures to.
    It was stupid and he should not have left his job.
    Suddenly the media is puritan – meanwhile – the Mayor
    bought himself a third term – that is overlooked.
    The senseless invasion in the mideast – now that is criminal,
    sending soldiers to their death so certain groups could profit.
    The result of that invasion is trillions of debt, people have lost their jobs and homes. Criminal !
    What Weiner does in his time, who cares.
