WASHINGTON (AP) — Modern relationships can be complex. Just ask White House budget director Peter Orszag, whose ex-girlfriend gave birth to his daughter a few weeks before he got engaged to a different woman.
Orszag and his ex-girlfriend, Claire Milonas of New York, released a joint statement on the birth of their daughter this week after The New York Post reported the story.
“In November, Claire gave birth to a beautiful baby girl,” they said. “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.”
The couple said they were together until last spring.
Orszag’s fiancee, ABC News reporter Bianna Golodryga, announced their engagement on “Good Morning America” Dec. 29. They met at the White House Correspondents Dinner last May.
