Tim Allen Is Better Known For Family-focused Films

The ace actor was born Timothy Alan Dick on the 13th day of June 1953, in Denver, Colorado, to Gerald M. Dick and Martha Katherine. His father was a real estate agent, while his mother was a community service worker. Tim schooled at Seaholm High School in Birmingham, where he was an active member of the music and theatre departments. When he graduated, he moved on to further his studies at Central Michigan University and later attended Western Michigan University, where he earned a degree in communications.

Tim Allen has been with his current wife, Jane Hajduk, for two decades and counting, and during that time, they have been married for no less than 15 years. They had begun dating in 2001, a time when Allen had been separated from his first wife, Laura Deibel, from whom he officially divorced in 2003. It is not exactly known how Allen met Jane, but there is a possibility that it could have been on the set of the 2001 film Joe Somebody, where they both had roles.

After five years of dating, Tim Allen and Jane Hajduk got married on the 7th of October 2006 in a private ceremony that was held in Grand Lake, Colorado. According to People Magazine, only close family members were in attendance, and from photos obtained, the number of guests appeared to be about 50. It was an outdoor wedding that treated guests to a view of the surrounding mountains. For her outfit, Jane kept it simple, opting for a low-cut, v-neck white gown. She completed her look with a messy bun and a bouquet of red roses, Allen, on the other hand, wore the classic black tux.

Lessons From His First Marriage Has Helped Allen In His Second Marriage to Jane

It was a shame to see Allen’s first marriage to Laura Deibel fall apart. They got married on April 7, 1984, and through the years, she proved to be his ride-or-die as it was a period when Allen was going through several personal issues, which can be traced to a time when they were still dating. Tim had served jail time for drug trafficking. He was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison following his arrest on the 2nd of October 1978, he left prison in 1981.

In 1991, his ex-wife Laura, who also happened to be his college sweetheart, spoke of those tough times, saying that she was with him because they were both simply in love. Sadly, their love would soon start to wane as Allen’s Hollywood career began to rise, which was right after he landed his Home Improvement role. A busy filming schedule made Allen have little to no time to spend with his wife, and soon, it took a toll on their marriage. Towards the late 90s, Allen got hooked on alcohol and was arrested for DUI. In 1999, Laura had become fed up and filed for divorce, which was finalized on March 1, 2003.

Tim Allen would later open up about how his experience from his first marriage prepared him to become a better husband to his second wife Jane Hajduk. He told Closer Weekly in 2017 that he was no longer the same man he was in his first marriage when he was “was hiding and doing what people who drink too much do.” He added that he had disconnected from his union, but checking into rehab and being sober for over two decades had transformed him into a better person, one who understands and values family.

Her career may not be as high profile as her husband Allen’s, but Jane does deserve some commendation for her contributions to the entertainment industry. She hails from Oil City, Pennsylvania, where she was born on October 26, 1966.

She became active in Hollywood in 1993 and so far has more than a handful of credits to her name. She made her debut in the 1993 film Sex Crimes. She made an appearance in a 1998 episode of the TV show Chicago Hope. Jane would come to have more TV show credits, including NCIS.
