Right under “TV detective,” Eric Christian Olsen can now add “father” to his resume.
PEOPLE reports that the NCIS star and his wife, Sarah Wright, have welcomed their first child.
The baby boy, named Wyatt Oliver, entered the world on Friday, August 16, at 7:45 PM, weighing in at 9 lbs., 8 oz.
“I’ve been a part of some pretty incredible experiences in my life, but I’ve never been a part of something so surreal, so life affirming and so insanely beautiful as watching my son come into this world,” gushed Eric.
“It was this watershed moment where I knew that everything I valued before seems finite and temporary.”
Of the delivery, the new dad revealed, “Sarah wanted to do a natural birth at home and she fought through 17 hours of intense labor before we finally got to meet Wyatt. I can only take stock in how lucky I am to have this amazing, powerful, woman in my life, and a beautiful new son.”
Congratulations to the new parents!
