‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ Star Eric Christian Olsen Boasts About Adorable Lunch Date and Fry Thief

by Suzanne Halliburton

You have to admit it. Eric Christian Olsen, one of the stars of NCIS: Los Angeles, has an adorable daughter.

When Olsen shares photos of Winter, it’s like an immediate shot of warm sunshine. She’s all chubby baby cheeks and messy blonde curls. And Winter also is days away from celebrating her first birthday.

The photo the NCIS: Los Angeles star shared Wednesday was of him breaking bread with his youngest child. He captioned it:

“My Lunch date. Already sleeveless and stealing my sweet potatoes fries.”

One of the first replies was from the Eric Christian Olsen fan club. The post: “Look at her guns!! You’ve got competition!”

The NCIS: Los Angeles cast is in production for season 13. But in Los Angeles, it’s endless summer, which seems to be what everyone with the show is celebrating.

Maybe Deeks and Kensi Will Start a Family This Season on NCIS: Los Angeles

Olsen plays Marty Deeks on the show. And his on-screen wife, Kensi, is portrayed by Daniela Ruah. She also happens to be his sister-in-law and one of his wife’s best friends. Ruah posted a photo of her and Sarah Wright Olsen in a post-pizza haze. The two friends are drinking ice-cold beverages as baby Winter naps beside her mama.

NCIS: Los Angeles season 13 also likely will bring family planning front and central for Deeks and Kensi. Details of the premiere are starting to leak. The episode is called Subject 17. And according to TV Insider, one of the plot lines will be “Kensi and Deeks (working) to expand their family.”

The main concern of the opening episode will be welcoming back Hetty (Linda Hunt) and explaining why she spent season 12 making remote calls from an unidentified war zone. In reality, the 76-year-old Hunt spent season 12 at home and away from the studio because she was at elevated risk for Covid-19. She did scenes via her driveway. But now it’s time to expand on the story line now that Hunt can come to the office.

Count on Deeks and Kensi being pulled into the Hetty drama. Showrunner Scott Gemmill said everyone will be involved. “She’ll try to resolve that on her own,” Gemmill said of Hetty. “But in the end, it will suck in the entire team.”

Next Week, There Will Be Birthday Celebrations

But while all the actors are fully committed to NCIS: Los Angeles, we’re sure they’ll be a flurry of photos next week featuring Olsen’s kids. After all, Winter’s first birthday is the 15th. She certainly is her daddy’s mini-me. She goes with him to work out – you can see Olsen even holding Winter as he trains. Last month, he was on the back porch, doing arm exercises. Winter was strapped to his chest. He posted a photo of the two of them and captioned it “She got jealous of the weighted vest.”

The world needs more of this cuteness.
