  • Marisa Ramirez has acted alongside Donnie Wahlberg for the past eight years on CBS' Blue Bloods.

  • During that time, she’s built an undeniable friendship both on and off-screen with her fellow Blue Bloods star.

Blue Bloods fans know and love Detective Maria Baez (played by Marisa Ramirez) as Detective Danny Reagan’s (played by Donnie Wahlberg) partner. While the two have undeniable chemistry—both platonic and potentially otherwise—on screen, that doesn’t always hint toward a real-life friendship off screen. But, for Marisa and Donnie, it does.

"Other jobs I've had... I'm three years with this person or three months with this person, but this is now... We're at eight years," Marisa told the outlet. "And I think our relationship has definitely evolved more so this year."

Where many shows haven’t been able to fully resume filming, Blue Bloods has had shoots on the books, allowing Marisa and Donnie to get together in real life.

“We just love each other... I'm so excited to be at work with him and to feel safe with someone who knows me, because I feel like I keep my guard up with other actors, or crew, or whoever, and this is a place where I can let it down... It feels very safe and comfortable,” she admitted in the interview.

Thanks to their on-and-off-screen relationship, many fans are hoping that Danny and Maria will develop an on-screen romance. Only time will tell though.

"I'm a part of his extended family, and it's a good place to be," Marisa said in the interview. "Whether it blossoms into something more, I mean, the possibilities are endless, and I'm sure maybe they would like to explore the possibilities. But who knows? ... Everybody makes different choices. Who knows what'll happen?"
