The NY Post reports that Peter Orszag‘s ex gave birth to his “secret love child” just six-weeks prior to his engagement to ABC News’ Bianna Golodryga. We recently wrote about the engagement of the OMB director and Golodryga.
The story got considerable attention on NBC, where it was a top story on the “Today” show. It was also featured on MSNBC where Norah O’Donnell called it “an embarrassment for one of the president’s top advisors.”
Orszag and Claire Milonas, his former girlfriend, released the following joint statement regarding the story: “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.”
