Two days after President Donald Trump announced Jason Miller would be his communications director in December, Miller stepped down following confirmed rumors that he had an affair with transition adviser A.J. Delgado. Now, it turns out Delgado was pregnant and had the baby in July.

Delgado, who is from Miami, tweeted on Tuesday that she had given birth to a son, William, who was born on July 10.

Delgado became infamous eight months ago, when following Miller’s appointment to communications director, she tweeted congratulations to “the baby-daddy” on his promotion, and called him “the 2016 version of John Edwards.”

Miller’s wife was pregnant at the time, and had a child in January. Delgado deleted the tweets as Miller announced he would no longer be taking the communications director job, saying he needed to focus on his family over his career.

Page Six was the first to confirm that Miller was the father of Delgado’s baby.

“My wife and I, along with our two daughters, are excited to welcome William into the world and into our family, and we appreciate the well wishes we’ve received from so many,” Miller said to Page Six in a statement.

Now Delgado has also confirmed the news on Twitter, in a series of tweets critical of the Page Six article.
