Huma Abedin: Anthony Weiner's Stunning Wife
Anthony Weiner's wife Huma Abedin has found herself thrust into the very public spotlight after the New York Representative admitted that he lied about sending lewd photos of himself over Twitter.
Abedin, 34, is a longtime aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Weiner and Abedin were married 11 months ago in a ceremony officiated by Bill Clinton at the Oheka Castle in Huntington, N.Y.
Abedin was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan to a father who was an Iranian scholar of Indian descent and Pakistani mother who is a sociology professor in Saudi Arabia. Raised in Saudi Arabia, Abedin came to the United States to attend George Washington University.
In a press conference yesterday, the Democratic congressman said his wife would stand by him, despite the sexting scandal.
"We have no intention of splitting over this," said Weiner, 46. "We will weather this. I love her. She loves me."
Not surprisingly, Abedin was not beside him at the press conference.
Abedin was profiled in a 2007 issue of Vogue where Hillary Clinton told the magazine,
"Abedin has the energy of a woman in her 20s, the confidence of a woman in her 30s, the experience of a woman in her 40s, and the grace of a woman in her 50s. She is timeless, her combination of poise, kindness, and intelligence are matchless."
