How Much Older Is ‘Blue Bloods’ Star Tom Selleck Than His Wife Jillie Mack?
Today, Tom Selleck is best known for playing Frank Reagan in the hit primetime show Blue Bloods. The show will approach 10 years on the air come September, yet Reagan is merely one of Selleck’s several beloved performances. Prior to Blue Bloods, Selleck starred in Magnum, P.I., Three Men and a Baby, Quigley Down Under, and even had a brief stint as one of Monica’s (Courtney Cox) love interests in Friends. Though he has quite the career to be proud of, he also has a family life to cherish.
Tom Selleck has been married to Jillie Mack since 1987. Yet, before settling down with Mack, he was married to Jacqueline Ray from 1971 to 1982. Selleck and Mack have one daughter together, Hanna Margaret Selleck. The Blue Bloods star also has one son from his previous marriage, Kevin Selleck, who is 54 years old. And though Tom Selleck and Jaqueline Ray are quite close in age (a modest 8-year gap), as one would expect given their son’s age, the gap between Selleck and his current wife is a bit steeper.
Inside Tom Selleck and Jillie Mack’s relationship
Tom Selleck and Jillie Mack first met when Mack was in a London production of Cats back in 1983. Jillie Mack would go onto appear in Magnum P.I. across from Selleck, as well as a few other notable TV productions.
Mack guest-starred in Frasier, and appeared in ER, The Queen’s Nose, Fired Up, and more. Though not necessarily the household name that her husband is, those familiar with some of the major shows from the ‘80s’ and ‘90s will recognize Mack.
Though they first crossed paths in the early 80s, Selleck and Mack wouldn’t go on to marry until 1987. Jillie Mack was born on December 25 in 1957, making her 62 years old today. On the other hand, Tom Selleck was born on January 29 in 1945, making him 75 years old.
In short, there is a 12 year age gap between the happy couple. And, though this may seem like a drastic difference, it’s quite common of men and women in Hollywood; both George and Amal Clooney and Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively boast larger gaps. And, considering it’s hard enough to find love in Tinseltown, ensuring a small age gap can make the pool even smaller!
Tom Selleck once dated Mimi Rogers
Though Tom Selleck and Jillie Mack have now been together for quite some time, Selleck is known for dating other well-known stars in between to his two longest relationships. Tom Selleck was briefly connected to Mimi Rogers, who he began dating in 1982; however, they split up in 1983.
Mimi Rogers is currently 64 years old, and she is well known for starring in Full Body Massage, Affairs of State, The Rapture, and more. Selleck has also reportedly been connected to Marie Helvin, Lillian Muller, and Kitten Natividad, according to MarriedBiography.com
