Jeri Ryan is more relevant than you may think.
I know we’ve been over this before, but this woman may end up being single-handedly responsible for this country electing its first black president in 2008. And you just thought she was that chick from Star Trek.
Anyway, since divorcing politician Jack Ryan in 1999 and setting in place a series of events that would, nearly a decade later, result in Barack Obama emerging as the front-runner for the U.S. presidency, Jeri’s remarried, and she just had a baby.
Little Gisele Eme was born Sunday in Los Angeles, weighing 7 lbs., 13 oz. Mother and baby are healthy.
How amazing does she look?
Jeri made an appearance at the Westwood premiere of Bee Movie on Sunday night, and she’s just glowing!
Jeri divorced politico Jack Ryan in 1999. (Remember that whole scandal? When the divorce papers were unsealed in 2004, they ruined Jack’s reputation — Jeri accused him of forcing her to perform sex acts in public and at strip clubs — and killed his Illinois Senate bid, which Barack Obama went on to win. The rest is history. So, basically, if America ends up electing its first black president in 2008, Jeri Ryan’s the one who deserves the thanks.)
She married Chef Christophe Ã‰mÃ© in June of this year. She’s due in March 2008.
