Plus: Meet his and wife Huma's 6-month-old son, Jordan!
What’s next for former New York congressman Anthony Weiner? Baby’s first steps, of course.
“I’m very happy in my present life,” Weiner, 47, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview. “The only next dramatic steps I’m planning on are Jordan’s first,” he says, referring to his 6-month-old son and remaining noncommital on whether he will run for office again.
In his first joint interview with wife Huma Abedin, who is deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the couple address how they survived Weiner’s lewd text and photo scandal that led to his resignation, as well as who has diaper duty.
“It took a lot of work to get to where are are today, but I want people to know we’re a normal family,” says Abedin, 37.
“Anthony has spent every day since [the scandal] trying to be the best dad and husband he can be,” she says of her husband, who does all the laundry. “I’m proud to be married to him.”
