Selleck and Mack’s Relationship
When Selleck met Mack, he had been divorced for 38 years. Selleck had a crush on Mack when he played Rumpleteazer in the musical Cats.
A dinner date between the two turned into a once-in-a-lifetime romance.
Mack transferred to Hawaii after her contract with Cats expired. She was soon seen accompanying the handsome actor to events such as Emmys and red carpets for various movies and shows.
It didn’t take long for the couple to realize how wonderful they were together. They married in a private ceremony in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, in 1987.

To keep their marriage out of the media and tabloids, the 80s superstar and his lady love kept their true identities hidden from everyone, including the minister who was to marry them.
Hannah, the couple’s first child, was born the following year.
Selleck was so dedicated to his relationship with Mack and his family that he gave up his career while it was at its peak to devote more time to his family and marriage.
“It’s important to nurture your marriage. I think wanting time away from work has been good for that.
Balance Is the Key to a Successful Marriage
Despite his profession, Selleck is a private individual who is hesitant to share details about his personal life with the public. We can infer his preference for quiet because the actor left the hit show Magnum P.I. to spend more time with his family.
In a People interview in 2020, the actor expressed gratitude for the career he loved and the private life he has successfully maintained. The balance between work and family has always been important to the actor.

Even after all these years, the actor prioritizes family time above all else. The actor, who is currently starring in the police drama Blue Bloods, spends his free time with his wife, Jillie.
Jillie’s loving husband is a father of two children. Kevin is his eldest son from his first marriage to Jacqueline Ray. Hannah is his daughter from his second marriage to Jillie. The actor attributes his sanity to his partner and children.
