David Paul Olsen was born on the 2nd of January 1976 in Moline, Illinois USA, to Paul (father) and Jeanne Olsen (mother). His father was a professor in English and a country coach, while his mother was a non-denominational chaplain.
David Paul Olsen is not the only child born to his parents; he has a younger brother named Eric Christian Olsen who is a renowned Hollywood actor. His parents moved the family to Eugene, Oregon, after the birth of his younger brother, and after a while, they moved again to Bettendorf, Iowa, where they finally settled.
David and his brother may not have been born into a very wealthy home, but their parents had what it took to see them through school. We know that David and his younger brother attended Bettendorf middle and high School, however, there is no information about their higher education and where they had their college education.

After dating for about three years, they decided it was time to tie the knot. They got married on the 19th of June 2014, in Portugal. Since David is Lutheran and Daniela is Jewish, they had an interfaith wedding.
Their Union Is Blessed With Two Children
Eric Olsen’s plan to make David and Daniela date has not only worked, it has worked perfectly and has brought two amazing children into the world. Before David and Daniela got married in 2014, they were already parents to River Isaac Ruah Olsen, their son who was born on the 13th of December 2013.
About two years after their wedding in 2014, they welcomed their second child, a daughter, Sierra Esther Ruah Olsen who was born in September 2016.

It is noteworthy to add that David Paul Olsen and Danielle Ruah share a very cordial relationship with his brother, Eric Christian Olsen and his wife, Sarah Wright.
