'Star Trek's' Ryan has a daughter


Jeri Ryan and her husband, French chef Christophe Eme, have a new Trekkie in the family.

The former "Star Trek: Voyager" actress, 40, gave birth on Sunday to daughter Gisele in Los Angeles, her publicist David Lust said in an e-mailed statement.

"Both parents are thrilled. Jeri is resting comfortably and Christophe is playing the part of proud new papa quite well," Lust said.

The baby, weighing 7 pounds, 13 ounces, is the couple's first, according to Lust. The pair wed in France last June and own L.A. restaurant Ortolan, which Eme heads.

Ryan has a 13-year-old son, Alex, from a previous relationship.

She currently stars on the television drama "Shark" on CBS. Her TV credits include parts on "Boston Legal" and "Boston Public." She gained fame as Borg character Seven of Nine on "Star Trek: Voyager," which wrapped up in 2001.
