Daniela Ruah recently marked her mother’s birthday with a heartwarming celebration, sharing a delightful photo on Instagram. The snapshot captured the mother-daughter pair taking a selfie against the backdrop of a pier. Daniela sported a rust-colored shirt and a color-blocked cardigan, while her mother, Caterina, donned a forest green velour top paired with a matching sunhat.

Expressing her gratitude, Caterina responded with a heartfelt comment, saying, “Many thanks! I love you to infinity and beyond.” Fans filled the comments section with the Spanish adjective “linda,” conveying their appreciation for Caterina’s beauty.

Known for her private personal life, Daniela recently enjoyed a trip to Portugal with her husband, David Paul Olsen, the brother of her NCIS co-star Eric Christian Olsen. The family explored picturesque beaches, centuries-old districts, and even took a culinary class to master the art of making Pastéis de Nata (custard tarts), a traditional Portuguese dessert. Daniela shared a video montage of their adventures and expressed her affection for Portugal upon their return.

In addition to her personal endeavors, Daniela and her fellow NCIS stars actively participated in the ongoing SAG-AFTRA actors’ strike. They stood in solidarity on picket lines, advocating for fair pay and improved treatment in the entertainment industry.

Brian Dietzen, known for his role as Jimmy Palmer in the NCIS franchise, also voiced his support for the strike. He underscored the significance of union protections, particularly in securing residual payments crucial for essential medical coverage for him and his wife. Brian conveyed his love for his colleagues and the pride he felt in standing united during the strike, emphasizing their eagerness to return to the stage once a fair agreement is reached.
