NCIS: Los Angeles star Daniela Ruah is pregnant.

The actress, 29, is expecting her first child with fiancé David Olsen and is due to give birth this winter, Ruah confirms to PEOPLE.

“I’m so thrilled about having a baby boy and starting a new chapter as a parent with David,” she tells PEOPLE.

“It’s amazing how in love I am with this little person I’ve only seen on a black and white screen. I’m starting my own family and there is no other feeling like it.”

If Ruah’s fiancé’s name sounds familiar, it’s because Olsen, 37, is the older brother to fellow NCIS: Los Angeles star Eric Christian Olsen, who welcomed son Wyatt Oliver last month with his wife, actress Sarah Wright.

Ruah and Olsen met on NCIS: Los Angeles where she plays Special Agent Kensi Blye. Olsen, a former Navy SEAL, acts as Eric’s stunt double on the CBS drama, which kicks off its fifth season on Sept. 24.

Pretty cool how they met. I wonder if Kensi will be having a Deeks baby? I hope not. They aren’t even in a ‘relationship’ yet.

I love them both on NCIS. It’ll be strange pairing them up with romance on the show considering they will be soon-to-be in-laws and their children will be cousins. Good show!

Love NCIS: LA, and it’s hard to even begin to pick a favorite character…but Kensi and Deeks have great chemistry on screen. Love that his brother does his stunts. How nice that these little cousins will be close in age and grow up together!

NCIS:LA is my favorite show and Daniela is amazing! Congratulations to her and David on their pregnancy! I remember all of the fandom freaking out after the engagement announcement and then the baby!

Georgia on

One day those boys are going to watch the show and see their mum and uncle (or dad and auntie) making out… so weird

James on

I sure hope it was David, in his role of stunt double, that kisses Kensi instead of Deeks! Never really seen Kensi and Deeks as a couple! Just too different!!

I guess that is reason they put them together: opposites attract and all that!!
