Who doesn’t love Tom Selleck? The beloved American actor, now 77 years old, takes us back to the good old days and the classic films and shows we all enjoyed. We especially remember him as the private investigator Thomas Magnum in the popular TV series Magnum P.I. and as Peter Mitchell in Three Men and a Baby and Three Men and a Little Lady. But did you know he has a daughter in real life too? Well, she’s not so little anymore. Tom Selleck’s daughter, Hannah Margaret Selleck, is now a charming 34-year-old woman.
In 1987, Tom Selleck married Jillie Mack, and a year later, their daughter Hannah was born. Tom, a great fan of nature and the outdoors, wanted to share his love with his daughter. And soon enough, his passion became hers too!
After Hannah’s birth, Tom and Jillie purchased a 65-acre ranch in Ventura County, California, away from the Hollywood spotlight.
“We both thought it was the best environment for Hannah to grow up,” said her mother, Jillie.
While Hannah has dabbled in the entertainment business, she decided not to follow in her parents’ footsteps.
Tom, Jillie, and Hannah enjoyed a peaceful life on their ranch, surrounded by ranch horses and retired movie horses.
Tom also reduced his acting career to spend more time with his wife and beloved daughter.
“I quit Magnum to have a family,” he told People magazine in 2012. “It took a long time to get off the train, but I try very hard to have balance, and this ranch has helped me achieve that.”
It was on the ranch that Hannah had her first encounter with horses, riding her first one at the age of four.
By the time she was 14, Hannah had developed a serious passion for horses.
Her parents always encouraged her to pursue her passion.
“Because they are both artists, they believe in the idea that you have to be very passionate about what you do to be successful,” Hannah told Eqliving. “They encouraged me to be passionate and immersed in it, and from there it was up to me how much I wanted it. They always let me take the lead. If I wanted to change barns or trainers, that was my decision.”
Hannah graduated from Loyola Marymount University in California with a degree in communications, but then decided to pursue horse riding professionally.
During her college years, she started entering competitions and even opened her own horse breeding stable.
“My dad encouraged it a lot,” she said. “He liked the idea of developing the babies and young horses, so he was a big supporter of this concept.”
At 34 years old, Hannah is a stunning young woman. She can thank her dad for her good looks and passion for the outdoors!
Although modeling has been one of her pursuits, her main passion has always been horses.
“As a kid, my parents tried to raise me as normally as possible given my dad’s line of work,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “Those horses have been a great way for me to have my own accomplishments outside of whatever my parents had done.”
Both Tom and Hannah are role models we can all look up to!
Hannah rides with power and grace!
