Law & Order & New Son


OK, everyone, all at once: Aw. We hear that Jeri and former Sen. Fred Thompson, who stars on Law & Order and fills in for Paul Harvey, just had a son, their second child. Joining 3-year-old daughter Hayden is Samuel Howard Thompson. He was born today at the very reasonable time of 10:17 a.m. He weighed in at 7 pounds 14 ounces and measured 20½ inches. We're told that the middle name is for Jeri's grandfather as well as their good friends Howard Baker and Howard Liebengood.
