Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — NBC33 got a chance to catch up with Louisiana's most colorful governor today and get his take on the newest addition to his family.
Edwin Edwards gushed about his brand new baby boy, who is expected late August.
Edwards says he and wife Trina are in the process of preparing their baby room, but it's still a little ways down the line.
Of course, they're sharing in the excitement of the newest Edwards addition.
"We are pleased to find out we have a healthy little baby boy on the way,” said Edwards. “He should be here sometime in late August. We are going to name him Eli Wallace Edwards, which gives him the same initials as me, EWE. I just hopes he arrives here safe and sound and healthy."
Edwards is a father of four already.
Just in case you were wondering, his middle name is Washington.
