Anthony Scaramucci is said to have sent his estranged wife a text message to congratulate her on their birth of their son.
The already former White House communications director’s wife, Deirdre Ball, reportedly filed to divorce her husband at the beginning of July when she was nine months pregnant.
Scaramucci, or ‘The Mooch’ was named as Trump’s communication’s director late this month.
His appointment was opposed outwardly by former press secretary Sean Spicer and former chief of staff Reince Priebus, and ten days later, his short-lived times as communications director is over.

The couple were married for three years, with Ball giving birth to their first-born, Nicholas, in 2014. Their second son, James, was born on July 24 when Scaramucci was in West Virginia with President Trump.
An anonymous source has told The New York Post that Ball’s pain in the marriage “runs deep.”
“When James was born, he sent her a text saying: ‘Congratulations, I’ll pray for our child.’
She’s mad. They aren’t really speaking right now.”
Further reports have suggested that Ball wanted to end the relationship because of her husband’s “infatuation” with Trump.
Scaramucci is yet to confirm the divorce himself.
He seemingly did not meet his son James until Friday evening.
