His ranch became the perfect escape for him. Doing grunt work, clearing bushes, and planting about a thousand trees lets Tom Selleck stay fit better than any gym.

Tom Selleck is famous for his role in the hit series “Magnum, P. I,” which made him work so hard that he had to re-learn how to balance his work and personal life. The actor found refuge in his ranch and enjoys doing chores around it daily, and now he gets to have his six grandchildren join him.

Tom Selleck became famous when he landed the role in “Magnum, P.I.” where he starred as investigator Thomas Magnum. The series earned him several awards, including an Emmy. However, in his younger days, Selleck admitted that he got into big trouble that he regrets.

Selleck was adored for his looks, but the actor said he did not always have the confidence or a smooth tongue when it came to women, especially after he divorced his first wife. However, his second wife, Jillie Mack, became someone he could build a connection with after they met backstage at the production of London’s “Cats,” where she was a performer.

The Wiltshire, England-born actress made things easy for Selleck by making the first move. Selleck struggled to get the bravery to approach her, so instead, just before going on stage, Mack asked him to go out for a cocktail after the show. Fate was on their side, and they fell in love before marrying in 1987. Hannah was their only child, and she was brought up out of the spotlight.

Selleck now has six grandchildren from his first child and son from his first marriage, Kevin. He loves them dearly and is happiest when they visit him on his California ranch. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the star wished to see them more but had to be extra careful because his current show, “Blue Bloods,” would be nothing without him.

He loves his ranch, which he purchased after “Magnum, P.I.” wrapped in 1988. The series had consumed so much of his time that he felt the need to isolate himself to regain his sanity, so he took a break from acting and found peace in planting oak trees.

Selleck revealed in an appearance on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” that after 36 years of living on the farm, he still loves to see his trees grow. He joked and said he now has baby, teenage, and adult trees.
