Mrs. Carter: How is this for a twist?
In what seems on the surface like something that would almost be perfect as a story for a primetime drama series, “NCIS: Los Angeles” star Daniela Ruah is expecting her first child with her fiance David Olsen. As some of you may know, David is the stunt double and brother of series star Eric Christian Olsen, who she kissed at the end of last season. Given that we’re dealing with fictional characters in Deeks in Kensi, it’s not nearly as weird as it otherwise would be; but nonetheless, this has to make for some pretty interesting conversation when the families get together for major holidays.
Ruah first confirmed the news in an interview with People Magazine, where she had the following message to pass along on the subject:
“I’m so thrilled about having a baby boy and starting a new chapter as a parent with David. Its 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.”
For those of you interested in how this could impact production of the CBS series, Ruah is expecting to give birth this winter, which means that she will probably be away for the final couple months of production. Given that Kensi and Deeks are not even dating right now, we would be shocked if the pregnancy is written into the show. She will probably be written out for a time in order to care for her child, and be back in plenty of time for production on a potential season 6.
