NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Another E.W.E. may soon be on the way.

Trina Scott Edwards, wife of former Gov. Edwin Edwards, announced on her Facebook page late Sunday that the couple is expecting a son. She wrote that she can now "start shopping for little Eli Wallace Edwards."

If that is the name the couple has chosen, the newest member of the Edwards' clan will share the same initials as his father, whose full name is Edwin Washington Edwards.

This will be the third child for Trina and the fifth for Edwin, but it is the couple's first child together.

The Edwards family is the subject of a new A&E reality TV series, "The Governor's Wife," which is scheduled to air sometime this summer.
