In 1979, Sellecca got married to actor Gil Gerard, who is most prominent for his role as Captain William "Buck" Rogers on the TV series "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century."

"I have definitely been taken in by a man's courtship and the whirlwind feelings, only to find it was wrong."

However, their marriage was not successful and ended up in a painful divorce in 1987. They have a son together named Gib.

Like his parents, Gib also entered the world of showbiz. He is an actor and producer known for "Discarded," "Currency Rising," and "Desecrated."

In 1992, Sellecca tied the knot with John Tesh, a pianist and composer of pop music. He's also a radio host and television presenter. The couple shares one daughter together named Prima.

In an interview, Sellecca once opened up about her relationships — both sour and wonderful.

About her romance that turned sour, she said:

"I have definitely been taken in by a man's courtship and the whirlwind feelings, only to find it was wrong. That was my first husband, (actor) Gil Gerard."

As for her wonderful romance, the actress stated:

"It's a wonderful marriage, but I give John all the credit. He says that before he met me, he was the crazy one, but now he realizes there's no room for him to be crazy in this family because I am."

Sellecca was born in The Bronx, New York, New York. She initially became interested in the performing arts while attending Ramapo High School in Spring Valley. She enrolled at Boston College, but she withdrew to pursue a career in acting.

Prior to making her acting debut in the film "The Bermuda Depths" in 1978, she originally worked as a fashion model.
