WASHINGTON--Rep. Anthony Weiner's wife, a top aid to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is pregnant, with the news coming Wednesday just as he is facing the biggest crisis of his career over a sexting scandal made worse because he lied about sending lewd picture of himself to women.

The New York Times reported that Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, is pregnant, basing the report on three un-named sources.

The couple were married last year in a ceremony officiated by former President Bill Clinton.

Weiner, at his press conference earlier this week where he confessed about the photos and his coverup, said he would not split from his wife.

"We will weather this," Mr. Weiner said Monday. "I love her very much, and she loves me."
