NCIS: Los Angeles star Eric Christian Olsen is months away from becoming a parent. His wife, actress Sarah Wright, is expecting the couple's first child, a son, in August. As he tries to absorb the magnitude of raising a little one of his own, Olsen, 35, penned a letter of homage to his mother, Jeanne.

Dear Mom,

Let's be honest. I was a weird-looking baby. A little cross-eyed, big belly, and smiling constantly like a confused golden retriever. But you loved me unconditionally and gave me a foundation of support that provided me the confidence to take risks. This Mother's Day carries a gravitas that I'm just beginning to grasp. As Sarah and I bring a baby into this world, I realize (now) that I have learned from the best. Your example has given me the tools to navigate the impending chaos, and if we do a fraction of the job that you guys did, this kid is gonna be an all-star.

I'll love you forever; I'll like you for always... Eric
