'Shark's' Jeri Ryan Pregnant


Seven of Nine will be adding one more to her collective.

"Shark" actress and former "Star Trek" alien Jeri Ryan and her husband, French chef Christophe Eme, are expecting a child together, reports People.

"She is thrilled about the new addition and they are very, very happy," says her rep, David Lust. "They are beyond excited and are beaming from ear to ear."

The baby, whose gender is as yet unknown, is due in March.

Ryan, 39, and Eme wed this past June in France at a castle in Eme's hometown outside Angers in the Loire Valley.

The couple met through a friend's introduction at at charity event in 2003. Eme is the head chef of the West Hollywood restaurant Ortolan, where he's partners with Ryan.

The couple's restaurant appeared in an episode of the legal drama "Boston Legal." Ryan was also seen in the "Iron Chef America" audience when Eme competed on the show. Her other TV credits include "Boston Public," "Two and a Half Men" and "The O.C."

Ryan has a child, Alex, with ex-husband Jack Ryan, who dropped out of 2004's senatorial race in Illinois when details of their divorce proceedings were made public. In the records, Jeri Ryan alleges that her ex coerced her to attend sex clubs in three different cities.

Ryan is best known for playing former Borg Seven of Nine on "Star Trek: Voyager." She currently stars as Los Angeles District Attorney Jessica Devlin opposite James Woods in the CBS legal drama "Shark."
