In a story that gets weirder by the hour, the ongoing saga of Rep. Anthony Weiner has a new twist. His wife is pregnant.

Weiner and his wife, Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, have told close friends she is in the early stages of pregnancy, the New York Times reported.

Politico reported the pregnancy was in the first trimester and the couple only disclosed the news this week to a tight circle.

Abedin, 35, married Weiner, 46, last year in a ceremony officiated by former President Bill Clinton. She is a longtime aide to Hillary Clinton and is currently on an overseas trip with the secretary of state.

Abedin did not appear at Weiner's news conference on Monday when the New York congressman admitted to carrying out multiple online relationships. She has not made any public statements since then.

On Monday, Weiner said he and his wife had "no intention" of splitting up over the revelations and that he had not had sex outside of his marriage.

"I love her very much, and she loves me," he said.

Weiner's office did not have comment on the story when contacted by CBS News.
