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 Ball Scaramucci filed for divorce on July 6 in Nassau County Supreme Court on Long Island, according to Page Six. The news of the split came Friday, days after she gave birth.

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.”

Deidre and Anthony Scaramucci were married in 2014 and began dating in 2011.

The couple has two children together, including the newborn. Scaramucci has two additional children from his previous marriage.
