Eric Christian Olsen's homelife as a dad is about to alter significantly for a bittersweet reason. 

The NCIS actor has just wrapped filming of the final season of NCIS: LA - an emotional moment for everyone judging by the video below - a show he's been a part of since 2009.

While the cancellation of the show is emotional, it means Eric will have more time to be with his wife, Sarah Wright, and their three young children. Winter, two, Esme, six, and Wyatt, nine.

Eric is very close to his family

Eric also told Entertainment Tonight that he realized the true meaning of loving someone unconditionally after having children. 

"The most important thing that I learned was kind of the idea of unconditional love. And of course, that doesn’t mean that there’s not boundaries in that love. [There are] boundaries within that love, but the love is unconditional in that you always have this place that is safe."
