Usually about this time of year we’re all wrapped up reporting about the expected White House budget proposal for the next fiscal year.
But today we’ve got a little different news out of the Office of Management and Budget.
The White House budget director, Peter Orszag, has acknowledged that his ex-girlfriend gave birth to his daughter about six weeks ago, shortly before he became engaged in December to Bianna Golodryga, an ABC News correspondent.
Orszag had met Bianna at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner in May. Golodryga, 31, announced their engagement to a national television audience on her network’s show “Good Morning America.”
Here’s a joint statement issued by Orszag, 41, and Claire Milonas, 39.
“We were in a committed relationship until the spring of 2009. In November, Claire gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Although we are no longer together, we are both thrilled she is happy and healthy, and we would hope that everyone will respect her privacy,” they said.
