Tom first met Jillie in 1983 wen they were in London; she was performing in the musical Cats.

They tied the in 1987 and had Hannah the next year. 

Selleck says he most loves ‘the friendship’ between him and his wife, adding, ‘And Jillie’s sense of humor.’

He added Jillie is next to him when he goes over his Blue Bloods scripts.

‘I’m one of the last guys to see it, and I’m a good editor,’ said Selleck.

And he says he appreciates it all: ‘I’ve had a very good life, a very lucky life. I don’t know if it’s what I figured I’d be doing, but it’s with a lot of gratitude.’

This comes after he said he plans to relax when the curtain falls on the final episode of his hit police show Blue Bloods.

The actor’s 13-year run on the CBS series is coming to an end later this year.

And an insider has opened up about how he has no regrets over it finishing as it will give him more time to spend on his ranch with his wife.

‘He wants to relax on his ranch, walk around his property, spend time with his wife and family, and travel a bit,’ a source told Closer magazine.

‘Tom and Jillie can just sit at home, cook, go for a long walk and be very content. He adores Jillie and trusts her to schedule activities or travel plans.

‘He’s looking forward to having more free time to spend with her.’

Tom lives on a 65-acre home near Ventura, California, where he grows avocados.

He told Closer about how his wife is the center of his world: ‘Jillie has this sort of joie de vivre, this effervescent quality that just lights up a room.’

He and Jillie have a close relationship with their daughter Hannah, 35, who is an accomplished horse rider.

The source said: ‘Tom’s very close to Hannah and very proud of her competitive horse jumping career.

‘He hopes Hannah finds love and has children, but he’s not the type of dad to push it.’

Tom’s first book, his memoir ‘You Never Know’ is set to come out on 7 May, but the insider said it will not be a kiss-and-tell type book.

They said: ‘It’s not a gossipy Hollywood tell-all. He is sharing his experiences in (showbusiness), (and stories about how he met) some great stars and how they affected him, and what he’s learned.’ 

It was announced in November that season 14 of Blue Bloods will be its last. 

The last season of the show will be split into two parts, according to People. Part one of the final season will feature 10 episodes, beginning February 16, 2024. The last eight episodes – part two of the final season – will air in Fall 2024.
