WHO IS DANIELA RUAH, AND IS SHE MARRIED?
Born December 2, 1983, Daniela Ruah is 39 years of age, and first made her way into the acting business in Portuguese soap operas as a teenager.
She grew up in Portugal from the age of 5, and made her acting debut in ‘Jardins Proibidos’ (Forbidden Gardens). Age 18, Ruah moved to London for college, but moved back to Portugal after graduation to pursue her career.
While in Portugal, she won the Portuguese equivalent of Dancing With The Stars. Then, in 2007, she moved to New York to study at the Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute.
Daniela Ruah married David Olsen at an interfaith ceremony 2014. They have two children together: River Isaac Ruah Olsen (born December 2013) and Sierra Esther Ruah Olsen (September 2016).

WHO IS DANIELA RUAH’S HUSBAND DAVID?
David Olsen is the younger brother of Ruah’s NCIS: Los Angeles co-star (and love interest) Eric Christian Olsen. He “played matchmaker,” according to a report on their wedding on the Interfaith Family website.
“Eric kept inviting me to friends’ houses” where “he knew Dave would be,” Ruah said during an appearance on the Queen Latifah Show. “Then he stepped back and let whatever develop between us, and the rest is history.”
David is Lutheran, meaning he identifies with the theology of Martin Luther. Luther was a reformer whose efforts to reform the Catholic Church led to the foundation fo the Protestant Reformation.
Olsen and Daniela Ruah married in Portugal in 2014 – they have been husband and wife for nearly nine years.
WHAT DO PEOPLE THINK OF HER AND BOOMER ESIASON’S PRESENTING CHOPS?
Ruah’s followers, as followers often do, expressed their appreciation for Ruah’s TV gig co-hosting CBS’ Super Bowl Greatest Commercials: Battle Of The Decades with love heart and fire emojis.
CBS tweeted that Daniela “has got jokes!” Meanwhile, other social media users praised Ruah’s choice of shoes, or wrote that the 1980s was “one of the best decades for Super Bowl Greatest Commercials.”
“This is going to be awesome!” commented one Twitter user on Boomer’s post prompting the show. “Already almost cried,” wrote another.
