Wife of 85-year-old ex-Louisiana governor in labor

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Former Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards’ wife, Trina, has gone into labor.

Edwin is 85 years old; his wife is 34.

On Trina Scott Edwards’ Facebook page was a post: “Eli’s coming!!!!”

Also on her Facebook page, it says the boy’s name will probably be Eli Wallace, after her husband’s father.

This will be the third child for Trina and the fifth for Edwin, but it is the couple’s first together. They’ve been married for two years.

A reality show about their life, “The Governor’s Wife,” was supposed to premier on A&E network in June but was delayed.

Edwin Edwards served four terms, ending in 1996. He married Trina shortly after his release from federal prison for his role in a bribery and extortion scheme to rig riverboat casino licenses.
