Anthony Weiner, who resigned his Congress seat after lying about tweeting an illicit photo of himself to a 21-year-old supporter, has become a father.

The ex-New York lawmaker's wife, Huma Abedin, gave birth to Jordan Zane Weiner on Wednesday, the New York Post reported.

Weiner, who is Jewish, in June acknowledged inappropriate Internet relationships with at least six women. The pregnancy of Abedin, a Saudi-born Muslim, became public during the scandal.
