It’s a boy for NCIS: Los Angeles star Daniela Ruah!
Daniela and her fiance David Olsen welcomed their first child, River Isaac Ruah Olsen, on Monday, December 30.
“He’s healthy and strong, which is all we could ask for,” Daniela told People. “We are so happy, so thankful and feel so blessed to have brought him into the world.”
Daniela and David met on the set of NCIS: Los Angeles, where she plays Special Agent Kensi Blye and David, a former Navy SEAL, is the brother of and stunt double for her co-star, Eric Christian Olsen. Coincidentally, Eric and his wife, actress Sarah Wright, just welcomed a baby of their own in August.
“I’m so thrilled about having a baby boy and starting a new chapter as a parent with David,” the actress told People after initially announcing her pregnancy. “It’s amazing how in love I am with this little person I’ve only seen on a black-and-white screen. I’m starting my own family, and there is no other feeling like it.”
Daniela hasn’t wasted any time bonding with her new family, either. The actress posted an adorable photo of her little one gripping her fiance’s finger, writing, “Heaven, I’m in heaven… And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak. #mytwoloves.”
