After much hoopla and guessing, mystery and second-guessing, her husband finally emerged as the leading candidate for the second spot on the Republican presidential ticket in 2012. Mitt Romney leaked to the media that the 6-term congressional representative from Wisconsin would get the nod. Although he is in the senior leadership in the House of Representatives and a darling of fiscal conservatives, the public does not know much about him. We’ll leave that introduction to others as we always prefer to know about the WAGs.
Biography: Janna Ryan is a sharp cookie in her own right. Born Janna Little, she is originally from the small town of Madill, Oklahoma where her mid-western values and his conservative politics were figurative bedfellows before they became physical bedfellows as husband and wife. She is a graduate of the prestigious (and expensive) Wellesley girls college. After obtaining her 4-year degree there she one-upped her sterling education by continuing on to attend one of the best law schools in the country, George Washington University. One of the pictures in the gallery is from her college days when she was quite the looker.
After graduating she became a high-powered tax attorney for the accounting firm PriceWaterhouseCoopers in the nation’s capitol of Washington DC. She lived in Arlington, Virginia at the time, so fate crossed their path’s one day as she was introduced by a mutual friend. Congressmen get lonely away from their hometowns so you know the rest of the story. They dated for a year before getting hitched. Now she is a full-time stay at home mommy and wife to one of the country’s most powerful and underrated men.
She married Ryan in December, 2000 while he was just a babe in the woods during his very first term in Congress at the young age of 30 years old. They were married near her hometown in Oklahoma City, so good for her for sticking up for her family rights as Janna Christine Little became the candidate’s wife. The whole family was there to celebrate her big day and laugh off his earlier wedding proposal. One of her hubby’s hobbies is fishing, so being a thick-headed man like they all are he actually proposed at one of his favorite fishing lakes in Wisconsin.
In short time Paul Ryan’s wife turned to a favorite activity of Republican wives everywhere: child bearing. The couple now have three children. The first born was a daughter named Elizabeth Anne Ryan. Two sons followed named Charles Wilson and Samuel Lowery Ryan. How adorable!
The family resides in Janesville, Wisconsin which is located in the far southern end of the state, although he is obviously absent a lot doing the people’s business in Washington DC. They are a devout Catholic family who regularly attend mass in the local parish, St. John Vianney’s Catholic Church. Janna is one year older than Ryan although we have been unable to learn her exact birthday.
So that is what we know of Mrs. Janna Little Ryan. They seem like an awesome family and she an awesome wife. What do our readers say?
Update: Janna will attend the VP debate on October 11th, 2012. We expect her to get a share of the television exposure as the networks just love to show the wives of politicians, adding a very human element to their professional presentations. Our guess is that America will like what they see!!
