Everything To Know About Tom Selleck’s Iconic Hollywood Family

Tom Selleck is one of the rare few in Hollywood who has created a long-lasting bond with his wife of 33 years, Jillie Mack.

The two first locked eyes in 1983 during the West End production of the musical Cats, where Tom was infatuated from the moment he first set his eyes on Jillie, who played Rumpleteazer.

And like they say, the rest was history.

Since the two fell in love, Jillie stepped away from being a performer but is often seen accompanying Tom to major events and film premieres.

Selleck and Mack have one child together, a 31-year-old daughter Hannah who is the looks just like her mom. She is now a professional equestrian, and previously opened up to Equestrian Living about her famous parents.

“Because [my parents are] both artists, they believe in the idea that you have to be very passionate about what you do to be successful. They encouraged me to be passionate about it and immersed in it, and from there it was kind of on me how much I wanted it. They always let me take the lead. If I wanted to move barns or trainers, that was my decision,” she explained.

Tom also has an adopted son, Kevin Shepard , from his first marriage to model Jacqueline Ray. Kevin went on to become Kevin Selleck when he turned 21. He is now 54 and is a musician and actor with credits in Scream 2 and Magnum P.I. 

The former couple married in 1971 when they were both in their mid-20s. They were married for 10 years, but eventually called it quits in 1982, reportedly because Tom’s move to Hawaii to film Magnum P.I. was too challenging. He later revealed that he quit the show in order to prioritize his family.

“I quit Magnum to have a family,” Tom shared with People in 2012. “It took a long time to get off the train, but I try very hard to have balance, and this ranch has helped me do that. We both thought it was the best environment for [Hannah] to grow up.”

And when it comes to keeping a united front, well, Selleck credits their extensive communication skills.

“[We] have a pretty good partnership,” he shared with New York Daily News back in 1999. “We don’t do anything or make any decisions without consulting each other. And if one of us makes a decision involving [our daughter], the other parent completely supports that position, even if you disagree.”
