When you think of the 80’s, Tom Selleck definitely comes to mind. He was very popular and loved by many because of his role in „Magnum P.I.”
However, younger people who don’t know about this series may know Tom as Monica’s boyfriend, Dr. Richard Burke, on „Friends” or as Commissioner Frank Reagan on the TV series „Blue Bloods.” Although he is successful as an actor, Tom knows when to take a break to focus on his family. In this way a marriage can last forever.
Tom married Jillie Joan Mack in 1987 and they have two daughters together, but before people thought he was gay.
Tom was 38 when he first saw Jillie. He was a divorced man, and she was an actress in „Cats.” Tom has been conquered since he first saw her, so he always came to see her play.
Jane Seymour said that Tom always told her how cool ‘Cats’ was, and Jane didn’t realize how good it was to go all the time.
The two later had a date and fell in love and Jillie moved to Hawaii where Tom was filming for „Magnum P.I.” In 1987 they got married and the marriage still lasts.
In 1988 their first child was born and they moved to the ranch. They currently live there. Tom always knew how to separate professional and personal life, so he and his wife were able to raise their daughter together, without always putting her in the spotlight. Hannah, their daughter, is 31 years old now and is a professional equestrian. When Hannah was 10, Tom said they didn’t make any decisions without consulting each other.
Tom also said that if one parent makes a decision involving Hannah, the other parent will support that decision, even if they do not fully agree.
Tom and his daughter have opened a stable breeding boutique in the Hidden Valley. Tom was very pleased with this idea because he likes the idea of developing the babies and developing young horses. Hannah is also passionate about horses. Hannah and Tom want to prove that horses can be produced in the States.
When Tom doesn’t spend time with his family, but doesn’t work either, he likes to watch ice hockey games and spend his time on his ranch because he does grunt work and does the rounds.
I think Tom is a wonderful person and he is very lucky that he managed to find a balance between work and family, so that he can enjoy both and both can last very well over time.
