Tom Selleck’s daughter is far less private with her personal life than her father, who married his wife Jillie Mack in a private ceremony that only got leaked to the media a month later.
Tom and his wife of over three decades, Jilli Mack, married in a private ceremony in 1987 and later welcomed their daughter, Hannah Selleck, who is a carbon copy of her mother.
Hannah and her mother looked strikingly similar in a new photo Hannah shared of her and her mom visiting their horses on her Instagram account this week.

Hannah shared a collection of photos from their visit to their retired horses, Bauer and Tosca. She shared a few snaps of herself with the gorgeous animals, but the most striking image was a selfie with her mom and one of the horses.
The selfie highlighted just how much Hannah resembles her mother, as the two have long blond locks, the same wide smile, face shape, and similar-looking noses.

Hannah’s parents met in 1983 after Selleck had seen her in the musical “Cats.” He has just been dating Mimi Rogers, and it was a year after his divorce from his wife of 10 years, Jacquelyn Ray.
At the time, Selleck was filming the movie “Lassiter” in London and developed an interesting affection for the West End Musical. His co-star Jane Seymour said at the time:
“He kept telling how great Cats was. I thought it was good, but I couldn’t see going back a dozen times.”
It turned out Selleck was far more interested in one of the female felines than the show itself. The future husband and wife had dinner together in London and hit it off. She soon moved to the U.S., and they became a couple.
Four years later, on August 7, 1987, the “Magnum P.I.” star and the English actress and dancer tied the knot during a private wedding ceremony at a Nevada Chapel called Dream Maker in Incline Village.

Selleck was anxious to keep the ceremony private and went great lengthens to keep the nuptials a
. Selleck even got his brother to make the wedding arrangements under fake names.
Furthermore, the couple’s identity was kept secret from the reverend, and outlets have reported that Selleck only allowed polaroid cameras at the reception so that nothing would be leaked to the press.
Unlike many other celebrities, the wedding was not only private but a very cheap affair. The wedding costs were low as the ceremony cost $75, and the marriage license fee was $27.
