Huma Abedin Gets Engaged to George Soros’ Son

Huma Abedin is engaged to George Soros’ son and heir Alex.

The Democratic insider, 47, and the younger Soros, 38, got engaged six weeks ago and were spotted recently celebrating in Italy, according to Page Six.

The couple confirmed their engagement on Instagram shortly after Page Six published their story, with Soros writing: ‘this happened…we couldn’t be happier, more grateful, or more in love.’

Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s former deputy chief of staff, was previously married to disgraced New York politician Anthony Weiner.

It will be the first marriage for Soros, who has been named as the heir to his father’s $25 billion empire.

‘After a lot of tumultuous years for Huma, she’s relaxed and happy and in love,’ a friend of Abedin told Page Six, adding that the pair’s relationship is ‘effortless.’

After confirming their romance on Instagram on Valentine’s Day with a picture from Paris, the couple attended the Met Gala together in May.

The pair have kept a low profile and scarcely have been seen in public.

They reportedly met through a mutual friend and have been traveling together over the summer.

In April, Page Six reported they were sitting courtside to watch the Knicks take on the Philadelphia 76ers in the first round of the NBA playoffs.

The romance between the pair comes seven years after Huma divorced her former husband Weiner – who was engulfed in a number of high-profile scandals.

Weiner was caught on multiple occasions sending explicit snaps to various women – even during his political campaigns.

But he failed to learn from his missteps and was later sentenced to 21 months in prison after he began sexting a 15-year-old girl.

Abedin, who had initially stood by him, eventually decided to pull the plug and the pair went their separate ways.

The former couple share a son, Jordan, who was born in 2011.

Abedin wrote about the harrowing experience in a 2021 memoir titled Both/And: A Life in Many Worlds.

In it she revealed that she didn’t lost her virginity till she was with Weiner at 32-years-old.

‘I had my heart broken, dragged out, stomped on, humiliated. I lived with shame, in shame, for so long,’ she told The Cut in a 2021 interview before the release of her memoir, ‘In hindsight, I was in extreme trauma.’

Abedin told The Cut that the memoir was the idea of longtime Vogue editor Anna Wintour, adding that the famously icy editor was one of her strongest sources of comfort.

She was previously rumored to be dating Bradley Cooper for a short spell in 2022 – reportedly arriving at the Met Gala that year with The Hangover star before parting ways to keep their cover.

The Soros heir, on his part, was known as a rich kid who threw lavish parties before shedding his playboy image.

His ascent to the head of George’s Open Society Foundations (OSF) was seen as something of a shock decision, particularly as it saw him usurp his older -brother Jonathan in a corporate battle.

But ahead of the June 2023 announcement, Soros had slowly been working on transforming his image from that of a playboy to a political power player – swapping parties with celebrities for pow wows with people of serious influence, including Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Joe Biden.

When he was named as his father’s successor, he vowed that he would use 93-year-old George’s fortune to finance progressive causes – including abortion rights and gender equality – telling the Wall Street Journal that he was ‘more political’ than George and planned to reflect that in his business dealings.

He launched the Alexander Soros Foundation in 2012 with the stated mission of promoting social justice and human rights, though it also focuses on environmentalism, education, and cultural causes.

It has given millions of dollars to causes including environmentalism and education.
