‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ Star Eric Christian Olsen’s Wife Celebrates Daughter’s 5th Birthday With Sweet Snap

NCIS: Los Angeles star Eric Christian Olsen and his wife, Sarah Wright, have the cutest kids.

Earlier this week, the proud parents celebrated Esme Oliva’s fifth birthday. Mom Sarah posted about it on her Instagram account.

The photo shows their daughter blowing out a No. 5 5 birthday candle. She’s eating ice cream from a cone. And her adorably grubby face shows she’s eaten more treats. And why not? Your fifth birthday only comes around once. Party on.

Sarah captioned the photo: “Happy #5 to Our big blue eyed, dancing, singing, bug loving, storytelling baby squish.”

Don’t you love it?

NCIS: Los Angeles Fans Adored the Birthday Photo

So many of Sarah Wright’s friends and fans loved the birthday photo.

Emile de Ravin of Lost fame posted: “Happy birthday, beautiful girl.”

Jessica Capshaw, a former star of Grey’s Anatomy, wrote to Esme: “Birthday twin! Josie and I are singing from the rooftops for you.”

The NCIS: Los Angeles family is chock full of Olsen’s. There’s Eric, who plays Marty Deeks. Eric’s big brother, David, is his stunt double. And Daniela Ruah, who plays Kensi Blye, Marty Deeks’ husband, is Eric’s real-life sister-in-law.

The fun thing about both Eric Olsen and Daniela Ruah is they often share photos of their cute kids. It’s not all about NCIS: Los Angeles. The actors have adorable young families.

Eric and Sarah Olsen have three children. Their oldest son, Wyatt, is 8. Then there’s Esme. The youngest is daughter Winter, who was born last September. They’re all blonde, just like their parents.

Will Marty and Kensi Try to Start a Family in Season 13?

On NCIS: Los Angeles season 13, show producers have hinted that Deeks and Kensi will explore the idea of starting a family of their own. They’ll weigh whether two NCIS agents, who have dangerous jobs, should have children while in their line of work. It does make for an interesting storyline.

NCIS: Los Angeles started production for season 13 last month. The show premieres on Oct. 10. It keeps its Sunday night spot. However, CBS switched NCIS, the show that started it all, to Monday nights opposite Monday Night Football. The new time slot certainly will test whether the show still is the most popular scripted drama on television. The network moved the show from Tuesday nights so it could package it with new spinoff NCIS: Hawai’i. That show replaces the New Orleans NCIS franchise. While the trio of NCIS shows won’t be on the same night, they’ll be telecast within a 24-hour window of each other.

There’s also the idea of whether NCIS: Los Angeles will have a crossover episode to help introduce the Hawai’i cast. By NCIS tradition, the existing shows help out the new one. It makes for interesting plot twists. Eric Olsen already has volunteered to be an extra on NCIS: Hawai’i. After all, it’s filmed on location.

Several NCIS characters helped out in crossover episodes with NCIS: Los Angeles. They were Mark Harmon (Leroy Jethro Gibbs), Rocky Carroll (Leon Vance), Pauley Perrette (Abby Sciuto), Michael Weatherly (Tony DiNozzo), and David McCallum (Ducky Mallard).
