The mystery of why actor Eric Christian Olsen can’t stop smiling these days has been solved.
The NCIS: Los Angeles star and wife Sarah Wright are expecting their first child — a boy! — in August, they tell PEOPLE exclusively.
“When they handed me the 3D sonogram and I saw Sarah’s perfect lips and that little Norwegian nose just like mine, I was overcome with a sense of clarity in the world that I can only imagine is beginning of fatherhood,” Olsen, 35, tells PEOPLE.
“We’re so excited and can’t wait to meet him.”
The couple, who exchanged vows last June at their family’s ranch near Jackson Hole, Wyo. have been thinking about starting their family for a while now.
“I can’t imagine a better mother for our future children,” Olsen told PEOPLE the day after they wed.
