Tom Selleck's ranch ended up becoming the perfect healing space for him.
Tom Selleck's claim to fame was as investigator Thomas Magnum in the hit series Magnum P.I. which earned him several awards, including an Emmy. But at heart, he is a family man.
As per Closer Weekly, before becoming a well-known actor, he married model Jaqueline Ray, whom he met while building his career doing commercials. They were married for eleven years and had a son, Kevin before they divorced.
Selleck did not have the confidence to approach women after his first divorce. But destiny had different plans for him, he met and connected with Jillie Mack, a Wiltshire, England-born actress he met backstage at the production of Cats in London, where Mack was a performer.
She would be his second wife. Selleck made the first move and asked her out. Before Mack was scheduled to go on stage, he asked her out for a cocktail after the show.
The two fell in love and got married in 1987. The couple gave birth to a daughter, Hannah. The kids were raised out of the limelight.
Selleck recently celebrated his 78th birthday. He has six grandchildren from his son Kevin who are close to his heart and visit him on his ranch in California.
After his family, Selleck's next love is his ranch. The actor purchased it after completing his time on Magnum P.I. in 1988. The show had consumed him so much that he needed to rejuvenate himself, so he took a break and found peace in planting oak trees.
As per PEOPLE, the actor realized the need to find a good work-life balance, even though he admitted that the transition was not easy. But his ranch ended up becoming the perfect healing space for him. Selleck enjoys his early mornings on his 65-acre ranch. Every day he wakes up before his wife and puts on the teakettle so that she has hot water ready when she gets up.
Now he films Blue Bloods every other week and travels to New York. When he gets a break from filming the hit T.V. show, he shoots a film for about a month and then he spends time with his family.
Selleck loves the contrast between his ranch and his Hollywood life. As per Closer Weekly, when he finishes shooting a film and the media is flooded with arguments about how good or bad it is, he gets away from the noise by appreciating his growing trees.
Mack loves her life on the ranch, especially taking care of her animals. Mack has five dogs, which she reportedly talks to like humans. The ranch is also generously filled with orchards and has a pond. Maintaining it is a full-time job, but when Selleck is not filming, he uses his energy to take care of his land.
The actor would love to see his daughter Hannah get married and have children and more grandkids. He and his wife already approve of Hannah's boyfriend and imagine her tying the knot on their ranch.
Selleck has found love in his family and the ranch and it is beautiful!
