Sources told ABC News Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, is three months pregnant with the couple's first child.
Though Abedin, 35, is reportedly devastated by her husband's admission of risque online chats and photo swaps with other women, she's reportedly told friends she is still committed to the marriage and wants to help Weiner salvage his political career.
Friends say that Abedin, who is a top aide to Hillary Clinton, did know that Weiner had a "problem" before their marriage, but he promised he was passed that.
Abedin, say friends and colleagues, still believes she can salvage his political career and wants to help him do that. She has been leaning on and getting advice from her boss, Hillary Clinton, and her sister, say friends.
Abedin left Wednesday night for the Middle East and Africa with Clinton and has been by her side constantly. Efforts by ABC News to reach her for comment have been unsuccessful.
