Convicted former Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards' wife, Trina, gave birth to a baby boy early Thursday morning.
The former governor's wife made the announcement on her Facebook page. She let her followers know Wednesday afternoon that labor had begun. Follow ups included progress reports and then the big announcement: at 12:52 a.m., they welcomed a 6lb., 3 oz. boy into their lives.
"I can't stop staring at our perfect little boy," Trina posted. Also on her Facebook page, it says the boy's name will probably be Eli Wallace, after her husband's father.
In seven days, the boy's father celebrates his 86th birthday.
