U.S. whistleblower Edward Snowden's wife shares photos of their new son
MOSCOW (Reuters) - The wife of US whistleblower Edward Snowden gave birth to a son, according to photos posted on her social media page on Saturday.
"Happy Holidays from our newly expanded family," wrote Lindsay Mills and shared photos of the couple with the newborn on Instagram.
37-year-old Snowden, who fled the United States after releasing secret files from the National Security Agency in 2013 and was granted asylum in Russia, said last month that he and his wife will seek Russian citizenship for the future family.

The couple said they feared being separated from their son at a time of pandemics and closed borders if they didn't become dual U.S.-Russian citizens.
Russia has already given Snowden permanent residency rights, attorney Anatoly Kucherena said earlier this year, a crucial step towards Russian citizenship.
For years, the US authorities have wanted Snowden to face criminal proceedings over an espionage case brought in 2013.
"As we expected, there is a new addition to his family. Edward and Lindsay have a son. Mother and baby are in excellent health," reported the Russian news agency Interfax on Saturday, citing Kucherena.
