Selleck was born on January 29, 1945. His mom and dad were hardworking Christians who had blue-collar jobs. His father was a carpenter and his mother was a housewife taking care of their family. Despite their determination, the family did not easily achieve financial success. Things started to get better when his dad earned more income by selling real estate.
Selleck is the second born of the family. So he was in constant competition with his older brother, Robert, for attention. He also wanted to be better when it comes to their achievements.
Aside from that, Selleck was troublesome when he was younger. He would usually get in an argument with his family. So to teach him a lesson, his father would punish him by a swift slap of his belt. But in many cases, he would also get physically harmed by his dad.
Even though he had a difficult childhood, he grew to become a responsible young man. And in high school, he wanted to go to the University of South Carolina through a basketball scholarship.

And when he had enough, he was able to transfer to his dream university, the University of South Carolina for his junior year in college. And at that time, he was majoring in business administration. And while in college, he was also attending acting auditions. He only decided to try to audition after his coach encouraged him to do so.
