If you were on social media this weekend, you probably noticed it was national daughter day. And NCIS: Los Angeles star Daniela Ruah isn’t going to miss a chance to honor one of her precious kids.

So Ruah posted a sweet snap of her and Sierra, her five-year-old little girl. In the photo, the two are kissing each other on the lips as they gave each other those big eyes of amazement.

The NCIS: Los Angeles star captioned the photo: “Happy daughter day to my mini me! Love your heart, brain & soul so so much.” Then Ruah translated the caption into Portuguese (she’s bi-lingual) Feliz dia das filhas para a minha mini eu, amo o teu coração, a tua mente e a tua alma muito muito

She also used a string of hashtags to tell her story. After all, this is social media.

Drat! Premiere of NCIS: Los Angeles Still Is Two Weeks Away

Ruah and her NCIS: Los Angeles castmates still are two weeks away from their season 13 premiere. Fans probably are cursing the wait, since CBS already kicked off the new seasons of NCIS, the franchise OG, and NCIS: Hawai’i, the spinoff. Like, we all know Gibbs is alive and hopped up to find a serial killer with the rest of his NCIS team. And Jane Tennant (Vanessa Lachey) is willing to jump off a cliff to catch a spy in NCIS: Hawai’i.

NCIS: Los Angeles is still playing off reruns from season 12 as the show gears up for its Oct. 10 premiere.

Here’s what we know about season 13, so far.

Hetty Lange (Linda Hunt) is back in the office after spending all but a scene out of the studio during season 12. The NCIS: Los Angeles crew will figure out where Hetty was and help her solve the case. The newest episode is “Subject 17.”

Meanwhile, we know that Ruah’s Kensi Blye and husband Marty Deeks are talking about starting a family, possibly even adoption. This plotline will be addressed in an earlier episode of season 13, although we don’t know which one.

“They just want a little kid to love,” Ruah says of her NCIS: Los Angeles character, in a preview for season 13.

“Kensi and Deeks ticked the box (on the adoption application) that race wasn’t an issue, but didn’t think what that might entail,” Ruah said. “You want this child to relate to their natural-born culture and fit in.”

Ruah said there will be a specific episode when the couple talks about adoption. The episode involves a real-life issue — Asian American hate crimes, post-Covid. Kensi and Deeks wonder what kind of problems a new family member could have if the couple adopts a baby from an Asian country.

But maybe this time next year, Ruah will be honoring daughter Sierra and a little one from NCIS: Los Angeles.
