The wife of former governor Edwin Edwards has given birth to the couple's first child, Eli Wallace Edwards. Trina Edwards confirmed the baby's arrival  on her Facebook page.Eli was born at 12:52am and weighs 6 lbs., 3 oz. Trina posted this on her Facebook page:

At 12:52 am, we welcomed a healthy, beautiful baby boy! He weighs 6lbs 3ozs, 19 in long, thanks for all your prayers!

Wow...what a day!! Too tired to sleep and I can't stop staring at our perfect little boy. I couldn't possibly be a prouder mommy!

This is the third child for Trina, the fifth for Edwards. Edwin Edwards is 85 years old and Trina is 34.This makes the new baby a great uncle since the former Governor has children in their 60's who have grandchildren. That's a little odd....a 1-day old baby is already a great uncle!!
