BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Just one week after a federal judge agreed to cut short former Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards' court supervision following his release from prison, his wife announces that they are expecting a baby.

She made the announcement via Facebook Friday.  She wrote "As of today I am officially allowed to make that announcement I've been dying to make...WE ARE EXPECTING!! I still pretty sick, but I'm in my 12th week so hopefully I will be feeling better soon and we will be able to resume filming!"

A reality television show about the 85-year-old Edwards and his 34-year-old wife, Trina Scott Edwards, is scheduled to debut later this month on A&E.

Edwards was sentenced to three years of supervised release, however, he only served 18 months of that before a judge agreed to end it early.

Edwards served eight years in federal prison and six months of home detention after he was convicted in 2000 for his role in a riverboat casino licensing scandal.
