MOSCOW (Reuters) – The wife of U.S. whistleblower Edward Snowden gave birth to a son, photographs posted on Saturday on her social media page revealed.

“Good Holidays from our newly expanded family.”

Snowden, 37, who left the U.S. in 2013 after leaking classified files from the National Security Agency. After that, Russia granted him to stay at its asylum. He also said that he and his wife would be pursuing Russian citizenship for the sake of their future family.

Furthermore, in an age of pandemics and closed borders, the couple said they feared being separated from their son if they didn’t become dual U.S.-Russian citizens.

According to lawyer Anatoly Kucherena earlier this year, Russia has already given Snowden permanent residency rights, a crucial step towards Russian citizenship.

Furthermore, for years, U.S. prosecutors have wanted Snowden to return to face a criminal trial brought in 2013 on espionage charges.

“As we expected, there is a new addition to his family. Edward and Lindsay have had a son. Moreover, the mother and baby are in excellent health,” announced on Saturday by Russia’s Interfax news agency, citing Kucherena.
