Jeri Ryan is engaged to her boyfriend, French chef Christopher Eme.
Jeri Ryan and Christopher Eme engaged. The actress spills her guts while promoting her new TV series "Shark" at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, California.
"He brought me home, covered my eyes and took me up to the bedroom. He had candles lit everywhere and champagne on ice. He had gotten this huge canvas and painted it with words that said in French 'And you come with me forever.'" Further she revealed that Eme also put their photograph at the bottom of the canvas with the words 'Toi et Moi' ('You and Me').
Ryan says the wedding will probably be next June in the Loire Valley of France. She adds, "That's when the rugby World Cup is in Paris. You know I am in love when I'm planning a wedding around a sporting event!"
Ryan and Eme, who is a French chef, are partners in Ortolan, an award-winning West Hollywood, California restaurant where Eme is the head chef.
