Meet Tarah Byrnes, a former beauty queen and wife of Arizona Diamondbacks player Eric Byrnes. See photos, video and a biography of Tarah below.
Tarah and Eric met seven years ago when she was 21 and he was 26. At the time, she was working for the San Diego Padres in the community relations department. Their first meeting was a set up – a client of hers had asked Tarah to go look for a little boy that she knew that was somewhere in the ballpark. She found him sitting with Eric and they’ve been together since.
They married last December at Half Moon Bay in California. Their three bulldogs, Bruin, Mr. Hitch and Bella were ring bearers and flower girl during the ceremony. They make their home in Glendale, Arizona but also have a home in California close to the beach.
Oh, and they recently had dinner with President Bush…
As a biography, Tarah has been competing in beauty pageants since she was 6 years old. She won the Miss California pageant in 2002 and went on to compete in the Miss USA pageant and became a semi-finalist.
She currently works in Real Estate and she and Eric have a clothing line due out next year.
