Olsen and Sarah have shown off their love on social media. When the actor signed a deal with CBS to produce two shows, his beloved congratulated him on Instagram, saying:

So this is where you have been? I was convinced you took up pottery or you were chasing your bowling league dreams.

The cute couple is also very serious about their love for each other despite their incredible sense of humor. After the birth of their second child, Olsen talked about how he admired his wife’s strength. He said: 

I am in awe of this woman; somehow navigating the most difficult moments with equal parts passion, fearlessness, and all-encompassing love. I suspect she may be magic.

To celebrate the arrival of his daughter, Olsen wrote:

I remember reading that how you approach birth is intimately connected with how you approach life, and after watching Sarah go through the process twice it’s undeniably true. Birth is like a whirlwind microcosm of the rest of the journey that is life.

We are so happy for them!
