Edwards family releases first picture of new son
BATON ROUGE- The Edwards shared the first picture of their new son, Eli, on Facebook Thursday evening.
The posting continues a nearly "live" status update session for the family that began Wednesday evening when Trina, wife of former governor Edwin Edwards, went into labor.
Eli is Edwin and Trina's first son together.
Eli Edwards was born at 12:52 a.m. Thursday and weighs 6 lbs., 3 oz. He is the third child for Trina, the fifth for Edwards.
The couple married shortly after Edwin Edwards was released from federal prison in 2011.
They are the subject of an upcoming reality TV show called "The Governor's Wife."
