Huma Abedin engaged to billionaire Alex Soros

Democratic political insider Huma Abedin and Alex Soros, son of billionaire Democratic donor George Soros, have recently gotten engaged, Page Six reports. Sources reveal that Soros proposed six weeks ago, and the couple were recently seen celebrating their engagement in Italy. Abedin, known for her close ties to Hillary Clinton, has been described by a friend as "relaxed, happy, and in love" after what has been described as tumultuous years.

The pair first made headlines earlier this year when they posted a cozy picture from a Valentine's Day dinner in Paris. They also attended the Met Gala together in May, where Abedin wore a green gown with butterfly appliqu├ęs designed by Erdem, while Soros opted for a gray tuxedo with a gold bug pin to match their insect-themed outfits.

Abedin, who was previously married to disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner, and Soros have been spotted leaving each other's apartments in NYC, indicating a growing closeness in their relationship. The couple has been traveling together, with sources reporting Abedin's appearance in the Balkans for a talk.

Despite their high-profile backgrounds, Abedin and Soros have mostly kept a low profile as a couple. They were seen sitting courtside at a Knicks playoffs game in April and attended the Munich Security Conference in Germany together. This engagement marks Soros' first marriage, and a source close to him described his increasing political activism over the past decade, following in his father's footsteps as a major Democratic donor.

Overall, Abedin and Soros' engagement has been met with warm wishes and congratulations from friends and sources close to the couple. Their relationship seems to be blossoming, with both parties appearing happy and content in their newfound love.
