Talk about big love.

Eric Christian Olsen and wife Sarah Wright had a big baby on their hands from the beginning — son Wyatt Oliver was 9 lbs., 8 oz. when he arrived in August. And he’s only been getting bigger since then.

“We have the most giant baby of all time,” the NCIS: Los Angeles star, 36, marveled to PEOPLE Monday at TV Guide‘s Hot List Party in Hollywood.

“He’s already a linebacker. He’s huge. He’s an enormous baby. I think he’s 19 lbs. at 10 weeks. So, he’s a good sleeper. It’s so much fun.”

Wyatt may be a handful physically, but Olsen says it’s the emotional intensity of fatherhood that was the biggest surprise to him.

Chris O’Donnell is the star of a hit TV series, a husband and doting dad of five, but has seamlessly been able to do it all and still find time to support a good cause.

“It’s about priorities more than anything. My family will always be first and work is right up there,” the NCIS: Los Angeles star, 43, told PEOPLE on Monday as he wore his orange shirt in honor of Hunger Action Month.

“Orange is the color of hunger. I’m helping [ConAgra Foods] raise awareness, getting people involved to spread the word by taking pictures of any sort of orange moment [and] posting it on different social media channels with the hashtag #Orange4Hunger,” explains O’Donnell.

With a full schedule, O’Donnell is quick to admit he’s not “getting to coach all of [the kids'] sports teams like [he] used to, but any free time goes to them.”

“It was this watershed moment where I knew that everything I valued before seems finite and temporary.”
