After about seven years of marriage, ‘NCIS: LA’ star Eric Olsen doesn’t spare a day to celebrate his wife Sarah Wright.

Eric and Sarah’s love story

Eric and Sarah first met on the set of the sitcom ‘The Loop’ back in 2006. Before their engagement in 2011, the lovebirds dated for five years, and in 2012 tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony near Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

They welcomed their first son, Wyatt, in 2013 and three years after, had their daughter Esme. Through thick and thin, Eric and Sarah have stuck by each other and they never fail to appreciate each other.

Eric’s tribute to Sarah

It is easy for couples to take each other for granted as time goes on, but not Eric. Last month, the actor took to Instagram to shower praises on his woman and thank her for all the great things she has done.

Giving fans a glimpse into his private life, Eric shared a sweet photo of Sarah carrying their two kids on her waist as she walked the street.

The lengthy caption started:

“There isn't a day that goes by that I don't recognize how lucky I am to have her as my partner.“

He continued, explaining that the image shared was a representation of his wife’s intellectual and emotional strength. Olsen revealed that while he was away from home from Monday to Friday, working on set, Sarah graciously handled their kids’ first week in kindergarten and preschool.

At the same time she was running the household, running her company, writing a book, handling her blog and working on a Netflix show.

He ended the sweet post, writing:

"We are on this magical journey of parenting together but she is propelling us through the universe with love as her North Star.”

Sarah was touched by the sweet post and replied in the comment section:

“Oh, my goodness... so beautiful so thoughtful 😭😭😭😭thank you. we are the lucky ones now please excuse me while I try to pick up my melted heart from the floor. ❤️🌈💕🙌🏻😭😘”

Other fans of the couple couldn’t help but celebrate their love too.

@djehr:

“I always find it heartwarming when a husband recognizes and shows respect for the strength of his wife Especially in public.”

@gwynethpenny1:

“Thank you for being such a supportive husband, father, companion and actor, I appreciate your words and congratulate you and your family on being a fabulous family. Best wishes.”

Sarah on parenting

Like most mothers, Sarah suffers from “mom guilt” and balancing being there for her family and career. However, she tries to find a way around it.

“You want to do it all, right? Be with them and also get a million things done. So I try to do my best to make lists and tackle what I can away from the kids so that when I am with them we can just color and play and make food together.”

Eric and Sarah’s love is phenomenal. Kudos to the actor for setting the right example of what a husband to be. Sarah is such a lucky woman!
