ASCENSION PARISH, LA — Trina Edwards has officially announced that she is pregnant.
Trina, 34, the wife of former governor Edwin Edwards, 85, told The Creole that she is now three months pregnant. The couple utilized in vitro fertilization to conceive.
“There are no adequate words to express my excitement. Having another baby was something I wanted so desperately,” Trina Edwards said. “I thought it was impossible, but through a twist of fate (which people will learn about in our upcoming show) we were given an amazing chance which resulted in a miracle! Edwin has been so loving and supportive through the whole process as have my boys and our family and friends. I’ve been blessed beyond imagine in my life and I do and will continue to thank God for all he’s given me! I know in my heart that this baby has a special purpose and will change the world…even if only ours.
Trina Edwards has two children from a previous marriage, as does Edwin. The couple tied the knot on Friday, July 29, 2011.
The couple will star in a new reality show called “The Governor’s Wife.” It is set to premiere on Wednesday, Feb. 27 at 10:00 p.m. on A&E.
