Daniela Ruah of "NCIS" and her fiancé David Olsen have welcomed their first child on Monday, Dec. 30th.

Overjoyed with their baby boy, Ruah and her husband shared the news with a statement.

"He's healthy and strong, which is all we could ask for," the actress told People.com. "We are so happy, so thankful and feel so blessed to have brought him into the world."

Furthermore, the happy new parents released the name of their son; River Isaac.

The 30-year-old actress is best known for portraying Special Agent Kensi Blye on CBS' "NCIS: Los Angeles."

It was on the set of the television series that Ruah met her fiancé, David Olsen, who is a stunt double on the show. The 38-year-old new dad is a former Navy SEAL and a stunt double on "NCIS" for his younger brother, Eric Christian Olsen, who stars on the show.

Back in June, the actress confirmed that not only was she expecting her first child with Olsen, but also that they were having a boy.

"I'm so thrilled about having a baby boy and starting a new chapter as a parent with David," she said, according to People.

"It's amazing how in love I am with this little person I've only seen on a black and white screen," she added. "I'm starting my own family and there is no other feeling like it."

Ruah is native to Boston, Mass. and is of Portuguese descent. The actress has also appeared on the television series "Hawaii Five-O" and in the film "Red Tails."

The new addition of River Isaac arrives just as "NCIS" saw the departure of one of Ruah's co-stars, Cote de Pablo.

Instead, de Pablo's character Ziva David was written off the CBS drama series in a fitting manner, but with the opportunity for her return.
