Three people with knowledge of the situation have said that Anthony Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, is in the early stages of pregnancy, the New York Times reported today.

Abedin has kept out of the public eye while her husband has been in the headlines for inappropriate, sexually charged contact with several women via social media sites, which he initially blamed on a hacker.  The longtime aide to Hillary Clinton prompted speculation when she did not appear at a press conference this week where Weiner came clean and publicly apologized to his wife, assuring the media that she would remain at his side.

Neither Weiner nor Abedin have addressed the report of a pregnancy. Abedin is currently in Africa with Clinton on a Global Democracy trip.
