When you hear the name Edward Snowden, a few words may come to mind: traitor, hero, and whistleblower, among others.

Now, another word comes to mind, and that word is "father."

Snowden's wife, Lindsay Mills, took to Twitter on Oct. 28 to announce that she's expecting the couple's first child together. 

"A long time in the making," she captioned a photo of her two of them. "Our greatest collaboration is coming soon."

In a tweet of his own, Snowden revealed that he and Mills will also be seeking Russian citizenship, writing, “After years of separation from our parents, my wife and I have no desire to be separated from our son. That’s why, in this era of pandemics and closed borders, we’re applying for dual US-Russian citizenship.”

They’ve been together since 2009.

The two have been dating since 2009, four years before Snowden leaked the information.

They lived in Hawaii for some time before Snowden fled the country for Hong Kong, and then Russia.

They've both lived in Maryland.

She's worked as a pole dancer and acrobat.

“Lindsay and I will remain Americans, raising our son with all the values of the America we love — including the freedom to speak his mind,” Snowden wrote on Twitter. “And I look forward to the day I can return to the States, so the whole family can be reunited.”

"Our greatest wish is that, wherever our son lives, he feels at home," he added.

Since 2013, Snowden has had asylum in Moscow, Russia, since his return to the United States would mean a trial and jail time. 

But that doesn’t mean she’s confined to Russia.

Because she's not wanted by the United States government, Linday's free to travel wherever she pleases, which she takes full advantage of.

Though she doesn’t always post where she travels to, it’s clear from her Instagram she’s been all over. She traveled to Poland and Iceland in 2018.

She’s not as secretive and private as him.

She frequently posts scantily-clad photos of herself, while Snowden stays mum.

While he seems like an introvert who doesn’t like to reveal many personal details about his life, Mills seems to be an open book — at least on Instagram.

She had no idea about his plans to leak the information.

Living together in Hawaii, you’d think couples would know a little bit too much about one another.

But in this case, Snowden hid his plans from Mills. He wanted to protect her and his family by not saying anything. He even told Mills he was going away for work.

Upon finding out Snowden was behind the leaks, she wrote on her blog, “As I type this on my tear-streaked keyboard I’m reflecting on all the faces that have graced my path. The ones I laughed with. The ones I’ve held. The one I’ve grown to love the most. And the ones I never got to bid adieu. But sometimes life doesn’t afford proper goodbyes.”

What is Edward Snowden's net worth?

Edward Snowden's net worth is reportedly around $500,000.
