We agree with this NCIS: Los Angeles star. On a breezy July morning in the middle of a holiday weekend, everyone deserves a nap.
Eric Christian Olsen shared a precious photo of himself with youngest daughter Winter Storm Saturday morning. She was all chubby baby cheeks and blonde waves as she nodded off in her Daddy’s lap. Olsen, who plays Marty Deeks on NCIS: Los Angeles, is desperate to stay awake. The two appear to be in a golf cart.
Olsen captioned it: “I know it’s only 11am but we ALL deserve this nap. #Livingherbestlife #napcity #butfirstsunscreen #[email protected]”
Olsen gave away a life hack in the caption. He tagged MUD\WTR, which bills itself as a “coffee alternative.” Product info said it has lots less caffeine than coffee, but gives you natural energy without the “jitters and crash.” But without it, we can see Olsen’s crash. And it’s adorable.
Fans of NCIS: Los Angeles Love Eric Christian Olsen as Marty Deeks
Olsen is a fan favorite on NCIS: Los Angeles. He plays Marty Deeks, the former public defender and police officer. For much of the duration of the show, Deeks served as a liaison between the LA Police Department and NCIS: Los Angeles. But in the recently completed season 12, Deeks was furloughed and then lost his job. Hetty (Linda Hunt) used her contacts to help Deeks into the NCIS training academy.
On the show, Deeks is married to Kensi, portrayed by Daniela Ruah. The two play a very believable married couple. In real life, they’re related by marriage. Ruah married Olsen’s older brother, David. And David is Eric’s stand-in on the show. Ruah and David met on the set of NCIS: Los Angeles.
Baby Winter was born last September and definitely was a positive of a lockdown year dominated by the Covid-19 pandemic. She was the third child of Olsen and his wife, Sarah.
Olsen Described Birth of His Daughter as ‘Newborn Bliss’
Eric Christian Olsen announced Winter’s birth in a statement sent to People magazine.
“As we collectively navigate the chaos and existential crisis that is 2020, we anchor ourselves with the things that matter most,” The NCIS: Los Angeles star wrote. (That’s) “family, friends and human connection. Winter Story Olsen came to us Sept 15. She’s 10 lbs., 4 oz., of newborn bliss.”
And there was more classic Olsen/Deeks in the statement. He said: “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; Love fearlessly.”
The two already were parents to son Wyatt Oliver and daughter Esmé Olivia. Olsen loves to share photos of his family with his 544,000-plus followers on Instagram. And his fans adore the photos.
One posted “This is beyond cute! And you are so right, totally relatable!”
Another NCIS: Los Angeles fan replied: “Oh My Heart. Winter looks so peaceful when she’s asleep. Haha also, gotta LOVE the look on your face, Eric.”
