Abedin and Weiner are expecting their first child ...

In yet another bombshell revelation, the New York Times is reporting that Huma Abedin, wife of embattled Rep. Anthony D. Weiner, is pregnant with the couple's first child.

This may explain why the 35-year-old Washington insider and mother-to-be has opted, as least for now, to stand by her man despite his admission that he sent lewd Twitter photos and texts to a number of women.

During a press conference on Monday, the New York Democrat who represents the 9th congressional district said: "My wife has known about some of these online relationships since before we were married.  But she did not know until this morning that I had not been truthful about the Twitter posting last week."

Abedin, top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is currently on an overseas trip to Northern Africa.  She and her boss will remain out of the U.S. until June 14.

The couple wed (see pics below) less than a year ago, and he remains adamant about their marital status: "We will weather this.  I love her very much, and she loves me."
