NEW ORLEANS -- Former Gov. Edwin Edwards is celebrating his 85th birthday today and showing no signs of slowing down.

One year after marrying a woman more than 50 years his junior, the couple is talking about trying to have a baby together.

Trina Edwards posted on Facebook they're grateful to those who've supported their decision to try to conceive a child.

She wrote, 'We are happy with our decision to try and have a baby and are not at all ashamed of what we are doing. I can't wait to begin trying in October and am excited about the possibility of having another child.'

Trina has two children and Edwards has four by previous marriages.
