Former Gov. Edwin Edwards will celebrate his birthday this weekend as a married man.

Edwards’ fiance, Trina Grimes Scott, said Monday that they plan to marry Friday in front of 10 guests.

“We are both extremely excited and looking forward to being husband and wife. We are having a very small, intimate ceremony,” she said by e-mail.

Scott, 32, will be Edwards’ third wife.

The day after the wedding, Edwards will celebrate his 84th birthday at the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans.
