When Tom Selleck was 38 years old, his co-workers noticed the actor became obsessed with the Cats musical. Selleck spent night after night in the West End in London. Then, the following day, he would come to the set and tell Jane Seymour how amazing the show was.
Seymour couldn’t figure out what was so great about the musical that made Tom Selleck watch it dozens of times.
As it turned out later, it was Jillie Joan Mack, who was amazing. The 25-year-old dancer played Rumpleteazer. The actor asked her out for a dinner once, and they’ve been inseparable ever since.
When Jillie’s contract was up, she moved to Hawaii. Selleck was working there on Magnum, P.I. at that time. After a short period of time, the two were spotted together a lot!
In 1987, the couple surprised everyone when they secretly got married.
“They were both nervous, like any other couple about to get married,” their wedding officiant said. David Immel remembered, “He was very concerned that the service is heartfelt, very concerned for her that the service is meaningful. He is a very warm, caring man.”
The following year, the spouses welcomed their first child, Hannah. Selleck also has another child from his previous marriage.
In 2012, the actor told People, “I quit Magnum to have a family. 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,” Mack added.
However, it is so much we know about Selleck’s private life. All because he finds it “very difficult to expose his private life and live with it.”
Tom Selleck and Jillie Joan Mack have made their family their number one priority, and here’s where it led them: straight to the 30th anniversary!
