After eight seasons on Blue Bloods, you’d think Tom Selleck might be ready to retire from the grueling filming schedule of a CBS drama. But the icon is showing no signs of slowing down! One reason the actor’s still going more than 50 years in Hollywood is probably the strong support system he’s built at home. The Magnum, P.I. star found true love with his wife, Jillie Mack, and they’ve created a lovely family and life together. If you thought his on-screen Blue Bloods brood was tightknit, just wait until you meet the real deal! Read on to learn more about Tom and his personal life through the years.

Though he seems ageless, Tom was born on Jan. 29, 1945, making him 72 years young now. We know, we’re as shocked as you are!
The California native was actually born in Detroit, MI, before his parents — a housewife and an executive and real estate investor — moved them to Sherman Oaks. He grew up with an older brother, Robert, a younger sister, Martha, and a younger brother, Daniel.
Tom has been married twice, first to model Jacqueline Ray in 1971. The couple divorced 11 years later in 1982, and five years later, he married British actress Jillie Mack. Though the couple has a 12-year age difference, they’ve made it work, celebrating 30 years together this year!

When Tom’s not in NYC filming Blue Bloods, he and Jillie — who no longer acts — call Thousand Oaks-Westlake Village, CA home. They live on a 60-acre farm that grows avocados!
After attending the University of Southern California, where he played basketball and pursued a degree in business and acting, he was drafted into the Vietnam War. Tom joined the California National Guard, serving in the 160th Infantry Regiment from 1967 to 1973.
While married to his first wife, Tom adopted her son, Kevin Shepard, who is now 51. After the couple split, he tried to remain in his stepson's life, despite Kevin's battle with addiction and financial struggles. Tom has one biological child, daughter Hannah Margaret Selleck, who was born to him and wife Jillie in December 1988, and is now 28 years old.

Thanks to his half-century in the film and television industry, Tom has amassed quite a fortune. As of 2017, Celebrity Net Worth lists his net worth at $45 million, and he’s rumored to be paid $150,000 per episode of his CBS series.
