Actor Eric Christian Olsen and his wife, actress Sarah Wright, are now parents to a baby boy.

According to People, the "NCIS: Los Angeles" star and his wife welcomed son Wyatt Oliver on Aug. 16.

"I've been a part of some pretty incredible experiences in my life, but I've never been a part of something so surreal, so life affirming and so insanely beautiful as watching my son come into this world," said Olsen, who portrays Detective Marty Deeks on the CBS series.

Olsen said that his wife, who opted for a natural birth at home, endured "17 hours of intense labor before we finally got to meet Wyatt."

This marks the first child for the couple, who exchanged vows in June 2012.

"NCIS: Los Angeles" returns for a new season on Sept. 24 at 9 p.m. ET.
