NCIS Los Angeles is back on air with its 14th season, premiering several weeks after the start of NCIS and NCIS Hawaii. This particular CBS drama in the NCIS franchise is best associated with the love story of Agents Marty Deeks (played by Eric Christian Olsen) and Kensi Blye (Daniela Ruah). They didn’t exactly see eye to eye in the beginning but over the years, they have grown closer, leading to their emotional wedding day in season 10.

Who is NCIS LA star Eric Christian Olsen married to?

NCIS LA’s Marty Deeks actor Eric Christian Olsen is married to actress Sarah Wright Olsen.

Fans may recognise her from projects such as House Bunny, Quintuplets, 7th Heaven, Made of Honour, Mad Love, Parks and Recreation, Marry Me and Spinning Out.

She and Eric first met when they starred in the Fox sitcom The Loop together back in 2006 where she played Lizzy and he portrayed Sully.

It wasn’t exactly love at first sight though as Sarah originally thought he was a “big jerk”.

In a joint interview with ET in 2015, Eric explained that he thought she only got the role because “you’re super gorgeous and not because you were talented and so I was mean to you the first time we met”.

Sarah continued: “But at the first table read, you laughed at my jokes, and came up to me afterward and apologised.”

They went on to date for five years before getting engaged in Mexico in 2011.

Eric and Sarah tied the knot the following year, according to People, outside their mountainside home in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

They now share three children together, son Wyatt Oliver Olsen, eight, and daughters Esmé Olivia Olsen, five and Winter Story Olsen, two.

Eric posted a tribute to his family following the birth of winter as it was during the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

On Instagram, he wrote: “As we collectively navigate the chaos and existential crisis that is 2020 we anchor ourselves with the things that matter most.

“Family, friends and human connection. Winter Story Olsen came to us Sept 15th.

“She’s 10lbs 4 ounces of newborn bliss. Mama and baby are doing great, home safe surrounded by a cuddle puddle of kids and giant dogs.

“Life is equal parts spectacular and fleeting; We have an obligation to the world and to ourselves to push through fear, apathy and self-preservation and LOVE FEARLESSLY.” (sic)

Eric’s NCIS LA counterpart Marty Deeks is also happily married but to his colleague Kensi Blye.

Actress Daniela Ruah, who plays Kensi, may not be his real-life wife but they do share a connection beyond the show.

She is married to Eric’s brother David Paul Olsen who also happens to be his stunt double on NCIS LA.

They met after Eric introduced them to one another and got married in 2014.

On The Queen Latifah Show that same year, Eric said Daniela and his brother were dating “awful” people and felt he needed to step in.

“When they got together, because he came on to do stunts, I would say something nice about her to him and then say something to him about her,” he said.

“That was enough to kinda get them started in conversation and it became this wonderful relationship.”

NCIS LA season 14 continues every Sunday on CBS in the USA. A UK release date hasn’t been announced.
