There are so many procedural dramas on TV, from all the "Law & Order" shows to the many "CSI" spinoffs. But "Blue Bloods" is different. This CBS drama follows the Reagan family as they navigate the ups and downs of not only being deeply entrenched in the New York City justice system, but also the dramas that just come from being a family, as per CBS. There's Frank Reagan, played by Tom Selleck, who is the patriarch of the family and the police commissioner. Donnie Wahlberg brings Danny Reagan, an experienced detective, to life, while Bridget Moynahan portrays Erin Reagan, an assistant district attorney. There's also Henry Reagan (Len Cariou), Frank's father, and quite a few other characters, as well.

Naturally the large and loud Reagan family gets into lots of arguments over police work and cases, but the show is also full of romantic drama. Like when Jamie Reagan and partner Eddie Janko gave into seasons of sexual tension and finally got married. But what about the actors that bring the Reagans to life? These are the "Blue Bloods" cast's actual partners.

Tom Selleck, who plays Frank Reagan on "Blue Bloods," actually has two marriages under his belt. As per AARP the Magazine, he married model JacquelineRay in 1971. Though Selleck adopted her son, the pair split 10 years later. Lucky for Selleck, he met his current wife in 1984. Selleck told AARP that he was visiting London when he saw the musical "Cats," went backstage, and had his breath taken away by Jillie Mack because, as he tells it, "she looked pretty good in a leotard." Though it took the "Magnum P.I." actor a few more theater tickets to work up the courage to go on a date with Mack, their romance blossomed. Selleck and Mack married three years later and had a daughter they named Hannah.

These days, Selleck and "Macksy" — as he lovingly calls her — live on a ranch in Ventura, California (as per People). Though Mack didn't love the ranch at first, she was willing to do anything for her beloved husband. "It was such the wisdom of Tom," she told AARP. "He knew he needed to buy back his anonymity, to replenish the soul."

Bridget Moynahan found love with businessman Andrew Frankel

Bridget Moynahan hasn't just made headlines for playing Erin Reagan on "Blue Bloods." The actress was also well-known for publicly dating and then publicly splitting from football pro Tom Brady, and then announcing she was pregnant with his child a few months after their breakup, as noted byUs Weekly. But Moynahan's love life saw a wonderful rebound after all that Brady drama when she met her now-husband Andrew Frankel "through a friend," according toPeople. Frankel is the co-president of Stuart Frankel & Co., "a Wall Street institutional brokerage firm," a source told the magazine.

The "Blue Bloods" actress and the successful businessman got married on October 17, 2015, at Wölffer Estate Vineyards in Sagaponack, New York. "They wanted a cool vibe and great energy," their wedding planners told People. "They really wanted the night to feel more like a large family dinner party than a wedding. It was all about simplicity and ease." Hopefully the couple is maintaining that vibe, especially with their blended family of boys: Moynahan's young son, Jack, with ex Tom Brady, and Frankel's three sons.

"Blue Bloods" star and New Kids on the Block member Donnie Wahlberg met his wife, Jenny McCarthy, in a very Hollywood way. The actor told the story in an Instagram post. Sharing a photo of when they first met, he wrote in the caption, "Our first meeting at ['Watch What Happens Live'] — where Andy [Cohen] implored me to ask Jenny out. I didn't." Whoops! Luckily for Wahlberg, McCarthy later had him on her VH1 talk show "The Jenny McCarthy Show." The interview got pretty steamy, and, according to People, the pair even laid down on the floor to discuss their sexual preferences.

They must have liked what they heard, as the celebrity couple tied the knot in 2014 and formed a blended family with three sons from their previous relationships, as per People. McCarthy is especially grateful for her and Wahlberg's relationship, as her son, Evan, has autism and she was worried about raising him on her own. "Donnie has been amazing," she told Fox News. "The fact that I found the love of my life for me, and Evan found a stepdad in his life, I feel like I can't ask for anything else."

Steve Schirripa has had many roles, from Bobby on "The Sopranos" to Detective Anthony Abetemarcoon "Blue Bloods" (via IMDb).

The Brooklyn native loves his wife, Laura, and their two daughters, Bria and Ciara, as noted byThe New York Times, and even credits his wife as the reason why he booked his famous role on "The Sopranos." "My wife was the one that pushed me," Schirripa told Esquire. "She said, 'You're only happy when you're doing this, go back.' Because I didn't want to spend the money to put myself up and fly myself out. But I did it and luckily it all worked out."

And work out it did. As per The New York Times, Schirripa and his wife are now living their best lives in Manhattan. When he's not filming new episodes of "Blue Bloods," they spend their Sundays in the most New York ways, from going on long walks and reading the paper to grabbing lunch at beloved local eateries.

Robert Clohessy, who plays Sid Gormley on "Blue Bloods," wasn't looking for love when he met his wife. He was just looking for a place to live. According to Main Street Magazine, Clohessy had to move to Los Angeles at the last minute after being cast as a recurring character on "Hill Street Blues." Lucky for him, his agent at the time was also representing a young actress who was looking for a renter: Catherine Erhardt. The two quickly hit it off and married later that year.

Clohessy and Erhardt stayed in Los Angeles for a while, having two sons, Myles and Byron, and later moving to the East Coast. As Myles toldThe Register Citizen, the boys had a "fairly typical classic country upbringing" in West Cornwall, Connecticut, but they soon joined the family business: the entertainment business. And, according to their IMDb pages, both Myles and Byron appeared in "Blue Bloods."

Abigail Hawk and her husband "do everything themselves"

Abigail Hawk plays Abigail Baker on "Blue Bloods." And the actress and her character don't just have the same name — both are also happily married. In real life, Hawk is married to Bryan Spies, who, according to Starry Magazine, is a first responder. The actress and her hubby share a pretty "normal" life, despite her acting success. "I'm a mom, I'm a wife, I'm a daughter and I have dogs who poop on the floor and chew up my shoes," Hawk told Starry Magazine. "We don't have a nanny. My husband and I do everything ourselves." Romantic, right?

It is romantic, especially since Hawk and Spies appear to still be madly in love. Hawk wrote a gushing Facebook post for her husband's 42nd birthday in April 2021, thanking him for helping out around the house and for being "handy, handsy, [and] handsome." She also calls him her "best friend" and the kind of man who "always finds the silver lining" and "like a prize truffle pig, he will always uncover hidden double-stuf Oreos." She finished the post with: "He's the best of the best, and I am his."
