NEW YORK - Former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner of New York is ending a rough year with some good news.

A spokeswoman says the Democrat and his wife, Huma Abedin, welcomed son Jordan Zain Weiner on Wednesday.

Weiner resigned from Congress in June amid outrage over sexually explicit emails and social media postings involving a former porn actress and other women. Republican Bob Turner won a special election to represent his Brooklyn-Queens district.

Abedin is a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Weiner and Abedin married in July 2010. Jordan is their first child.
