Edwin Edwards' Wife is Pregnant


EWE went and sired a child...again. At 85, four-time Louisiana governor and ex-con Edwin Edwards and his 34-year-old wife are expecting a baby. Trina Scott Edwards, who is carrying the child, made the reality show-ready couple's formal announcement today via Facebook.

 

"As of today I am officially allowed to make that announcement I've been dying to make...WE ARE EXPECTING!!"

 

The couple indicated last year that they were going to try to get pregnant via artificial insemination. Rumors swirled, but there was never any confirmation from the couple.

 

Indeed, going public always brings the haters. Upon making today's announcement, Trina was apparently blown up by commenters, necessitating a response.

 

"I'm getting a lot of messages from people who are upset about some negative comments being made. Don't worry about that silly stuff. My husband and I are excited and looking forward to bringing a new baby into our dysfunctional little family!! Hehe. It will be loved and cared for by not just us, but by everyone around us. Babies are a blessing regardless, but this one is well planned out and wanted. It's a very lucky kid!! Negativity? Ain't nobody got time fa dat!!"

 

Those wondering whether Edwards is up for another round of fatherhood may glance at Trina's pre-preggers Valentine's Day post.

 

He woke up early to fix me breakfast before coming with me to take my son for dental surgery, he dropped us home, did the grocery shopping, picked up lunch for me, had to go to a different place to get mashed potatoes for my kid, and while he was out I got a dozen roses...all before noon. This afternoon he'll go to my other son's track meet and then take me to dinner at Sullivan's. Even with everything I have going on today it's been a great Valentine's day thanks to my sweet husband! Did I mention he cleaned the kitchen so I could take a nap?!?

 

Trade roses for diapers, and voila!
