Daniela Ruah and Eric Christian Olsen play one of our favorite TV couples in NCIS: Los Angeles ("Kensi" and "Deeks.") But did you know that the actress is actually married to Eric's brother Paul? Their love story is just adorable! 

Daniela Ruah and Eric Christian Olsen star as "Kensi" and "Deeks" in NCIS: LAand they are one of our favorite couples on screen, but the 35-year-old actress is actually married to Eric's brother, David Paul Olsen, and there are some adorable facts about their love story that we would like to share with you!

Back in the days Daniela and David were dating "awful" people and were not able to be themselves... at least that's what Eric once said, so that's why he decided to hatch a plan. Since David also happens to be Eric's stunt double on the show, "Deeks" thought it would be a great idea to introduce Daniela to his brother: “When they got together, because he came on to do stunts, I would say something nice about her to him and then say something to him about her,” the NCIS: LA star said during an appearance on The Queen Latifah Show in 2014. Thanks to Eric, Daniela and David went on their first date in 2011.

What else do we know about Daniela Ruah and David Paul Olsen?

After a couple of years of dating, Daniela and David got married in June 2014 in Portugal, six months after welcoming their son River Isaac, and in 2016 they had a second child, Sierra Esther. The family of four is often traveling to Portugal, since Daniela Ruah is half Portuguese.

Special Agent "Kensi" is very active on social media where her fans can often see lovely pictures of her family. She also posts pictures with her co-star Eric and his wife Sarah Wright, who have two children as well. It seems that Eric Christian Olsen was a really good matchmaker and now both families spend a lot of time together!
