Anthony Scaramucci has returned home to visit his newborn son for the first time since his birth, days after it emerged that his wife was divorcing the bombastic White House communications director.
Deidre, 38, gave birth last Monday to a boy named James, just two weeks before her due date, while her husband was in West Virginia with President Trump at the Boy Scout jamboree.
He reportedly texted his wife: "Congratulations, I’ll pray for our child."
On Friday, Scaramucci boarded Air Force One to fly to Long Island with President Trump, but his first stop wasn't the hospital to see his newborn son. It was to Trump's speech before a group of law enforcement officials at Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood.
Once news of his divorce became public, he tweeted to “leave civilians out of this. I can take the hits, but I would ask that you would put my family in your thoughts and prayers & nothing more.”

On Saturday, he added: “Family does not need to be drawn into this.”
Family does not need to be drawn into this. Soon we will learn who in the media has class and who doesn't. No further comments on this.— Anthony Scaramucci (@Scaramucci) July 29, 2017
Deidre and Anthony Scaramucci were married in 2014 and began dating in 2011.
Friends and family were spotted arriving at the Scaramucci home over the weekend bearing gifts. Deidre was also seen shopping nearby.
The couple has two children together, including the newborn. Scaramucci has two additional children from his previous marriage.
