David Paul Olsen Married His Brother’s On-Screen Wife

There are some real-life couples that just seem to make sense together. Take NCIS: Los Angeles for example, where Marty Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) is married to Daniela Ruah’s on-screen alter ego, Kensi Blye but it turns out that Eric Christian Olsen has a brother named David Paul Olsen who is Daniela Ruah’s husband in real life. I bet you didn’t know that Eric was the one who played matchmaker for this pairing after David reported to NCIS: Los Angeles set to be Eric’s stunt double.

David And Daniela Are Both Wonderful People And A Perfect Match.

On The Queen Latifah ShowWhen, Eric detailed the couple’s origin story. He confessed that Daniela and David were engaged but haven’t tied the knot yet. Eric told the show, “[Daniela] was dating this guy that was awful, and [David] was dating this girl that was awful, and they weren’t themselves. I got to see her work, and she’s this amazing, wonderful human being. And I know my brother, and he’s this amazing, wonderful human being. But they weren’t themselves in their relationships.”

When David started doing stunts on NCIS: Los Angeles, Eric was the one who put it all into motion. “I would say something nice about her to him and then say something to him about her, and they’re both like, ‘Really? Really? Really?’ And that was enough to kinda get them started in conversation, and it became this wonderful relationship.”

Daniela And David’s First Child

When Eric was interviewed on his talk show, Daniela and David had just welcomed their first child. “Now two of my favorite people have a third,” he said during the episode.

Daniela gave birth to their son, River in January 2014. Daniela told People, “We are so happy, so thankful, and feel so blessed to have brought him into the world.” She previously told the Magazine that, “no other feeling” like the feeling of starting a family — and that it was “amazing” how in love she was with “this little person I’ve only seen on a black and white screen.”

Daniela and David Got Married

In June 2014, the couple got married and Daniela tweeted, “Just lived the best week of my life; I married my best friend. Our son was with us. We were surrounded by our favorite people in the whole world. Unforgettable.”

The couple’s love story is one for the books. Both she and her husband come from different faiths. Daniela told 18Doors that David is Lutheran and she’s Jewish. She told the site, “Our fathers married us. Dave’s father was ordained, and my father isn’t a rabbi, but you just have to have a minyan, ten men, to make it valid. We got married under a chuppah and Dave broke the glass. We had the wine ceremony and drank out of the Kiddush cup. Dave’s father recited a beautiful homily.”

Daniela and David Welcomed Second Child

In September 2016, The Ruah Olsen family welcomed a new addition to the family, Sierra Esther. Daniela wrote, “Apparently, she thought Labor Day weekend meant LABOR day weekend. Look who showed up 3 weeks early!”
