The only daughter of the renowned star Tom Selleck, Hannah Selleck is a celebrity in her own right. However, she’s not famous for being in front of or behind a camera, but rather on a farm.

Are you interested in finding out more about this gorgeous celebrity kid? Here’s everything you need to know about Hannah.

Early Life

Hannah was born on the 16th of December, 1988, about a year after her parents married. Her parents soon bought a ranch in Ventura County, California, and decided that’s where they’d raise their daughter. And they were right!

It turned out that their country lifestyle was the best environment for Hannah to grow up. It’s even impacted many of her personal and professional choices.

For example, she fell in love with horses at a very young age. She began her riding journey on a school horse near Calgary while her father was filming a movie in that area. Then, at age 10, she got her start in the show ring and never looked back.

Father

Tom Selleck

In the early 1980s, her father, Tom Selleck, got his break on television playing Thomas Magnum on the hit show Magnum P.I.

Then, in August 1987, he got married to Jillie Mack.

When they had their daughter, Selleck quit Magnum to spend more time with his family. Selleck has always worked hard to achieve a fair work-life balance as a relatively private individual.

Even though he eventually went back to acting, that balance between time with his family and work has always been his top priority.

Mother

Jillie Mack

Jillie Mack, Hannah’s biological mother, was born on Christmas Day, 1957, in Devizes, Wiltshire, England.

She started as a professional ballerina and met her husband, Tom Selleck, three decades ago while performing in the musical Cats in London. That was around 1983. Then, four years later, the couple wed at an intimate Victorian-style wedding chapel near Lake Tahoe, Nevada.

Jillie replaced her dancing career by becoming a budding actress. She made a couple of cameos on her husband’s hit T.V. show Magnum P.I., along with appearances in episodes of Frasier, Silverfox, and the highly successful medical drama E.R.

After her marriage to Selleck, Jillie’s acting and dancing career took a back seat. She enjoys concentrating more on her family and their ranch.

Siblings

Hannah doesn’t have any biological siblings. Yet, before her father married her mother, he had been married to model Jacqueline Ray from 1971 to 1982. Ray had a son from a previous relationship, Kevin Shepard.

After Selleck and Ray divorced in 1982, the Magnum P.I. star adopted Kevin and changed his name to Kevin Selleck.

Life Partner

Nic Roldan

Hannah Selleck isn’t married, but I managed to track down some insider info on her latest boyfriend, Nic Roldan.

Born on the 4th of December in 1982, Roldan is a U.S. polo player and model.

Professional Life

Hannah Selleck knew what she wanted to be when she grew up very early on in her life.

Despite having actors for parents, Hannah wasn’t tempted to go into showbiz. Even young, she recognized her love for horses and equestrian sports.

Today, she’s pursuing her lifelong passion with heartfelt zeal and success.

A College Graduate

Hannah graduated from Loyola Marymount University in 2011. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in communications.

Upon graduating, she landed a job at a public relations firm in Beverly Hills, where she interned for about six months. During that time, she only had time to ride on the weekends, making her miserable.

So, even though she’s attempted to pursue a professional career in communications and P.R., her biggest hurdle was not being able to spend a long time away from her horses.

Nevertheless, Hannah recently earned an MBA from the prestigious Pepperdine University’s Graziadio Business School in Malibu, California, in 2023. She plans to use everything she’s learned to help her horse breeding business succeed.

An Equestrian Jumping Athlete

During her early career, she won team silver medals in the Junior division of the 2005 Prix des States Junior Jumper National Championship in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. She also won the Junior division of the 2006 North American Junior and Young Rider Championships (NAJYRC) in Lexington, Virginia. It’s worth noting that in 2018, the NAJYRC was renamed the FEI North American Youth Championships (NAYC).

Hannah was named the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) Hunt Medal Finals Reserve Champion the following year. Then, the year after that, she won the Platinum Performance/USEF Show Jumping Talent Search Finals-West.

In 2008, she returned to the NAJYRC, held in Parker, Colorado, where she won individual and team gold medals in the Young Rider division. In addition, she earned an award for her style of riding.

Ever since she qualified to enter the Grand Prix ranks, Hannah has won multiple top 10 finishes in a wide range of international show jumping competitions. This includes the prestigious Canadian Pacific Grand Prix award at the 2015 Longines Masters of Los Angeles, along with her top-prized horse, Barla.

Unfortunately, she suffered a significant leg injury in 2018, where she broke both her fibula and tibia bones in her leg after a nasty fall at Spruce Meadows in Calgary. The fall was a result of her magnetic stirrups failing to release after her horse stopped abruptly at a jump.

She soon found herself being wheeled into surgery, which ended up lasting six hours.

It forced her to take time off from riding, about seven months. She focused on her health, recovering, and doing intense physical therapy.

Luckily, Hannah made a full recovery. Once her leg was strong enough, Hannah eagerly returned to the competition ring with renewed vigor after being told by a doctor that she would ‘never run again.’

Part of her recovery was alternative healing methods along with traditional medical treatments. To do this, Hannah turned to holistic healing. She worked with an energy healer who helped guide her through visualizations and meditation techniques to help her fully heal from the fall physically, mentally, and emotionally.

However, since her horse, Barla retired in the winter of 2020, Hannah has focused more on developing two new prized horses, Elita Tosciat DF and Rumpleteazer DF. Both horses were bred, raised, and trained at her Descanso Farm.

Her recent win was in the 2023 CS12 Grand Prix at the Longines Global Champions Tour of Miami Beach with her horse, Billy de Beaufour.

Hannah also trains and competes with several sales horses, including Kasper van het Leliehof.

In addition to pursuing her equestrian success, Hannah feels strongly about making a difference. That’s why she signed up to be an ambassador for Brooke USA, a charity dedicated to improving the well-being and health of horses, donkeys, and mules in the developing world.

As a professional rider and farm owner, Hannah is sponsored by renowned equestrian apparel and equipment brands, such as Kask, Parlanti, Cavalleri Toscana, Butet, and Roeckl.

A Farm Owner

In 2010, Hannah set up her equestrian farm, Descanso Farm, where she breeds, raises, and trains top-quality show horses. The farm is based out of El Campeon Farms in Thousand Oaks, California.

After ten years of running a successful breeding operation at the farm, Hannah has shifted her focus from training and competing to developing top-quality sale horses. She’s also keen on advancing the show careers of the horses both for her and her clients.

Hannah has always been thankful for her parents and their supporters throughout her riding career. They encouraged her love of riding even when she was four when Hannah started riding.

A Model

Despite having decided once and for all that horses are the center of her life, Hannah has been known to model for some of the brands sponsoring her.

She’s also modeled for other major lifestyle and activewear brands, including Tropic of C, Gigi C Bikinis, Bandier, and Adidas.

Net Worth

There have been reports that Hannah Selleck’s net worth is around $1 million. Her primary sources of revenue are her career as a competitive horse rider and model. Her horse breeding farm is also a source of income for the multi-time equestrian champion.

Conclusion

There, you have everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Hannah Selleck. Being the only daughter of a celebrity, Hannah doesn’t seem fazed by the limelight.

She prefers to maintain a low profile and has chosen not to pursue a career in acting but has committed herself to a prosperous career riding, breeding, and raising horses. Her numerous awards and international wins in equestrian competitions have proved that she’s a force to be reckoned with, both on and off the competition ring.
