The confusion surrounding the familial tie between Mark Harmon and Angie Harmon has left many seeking the identity of Mark’s real daughter.
Throughout his stint on “NCIS,” Mark Harmon’s character Leroy Jethro Gibbs stood as a father figure to his team, especially after losing his only daughter Kelly.
Although married four times, the beloved agent only had one child. Sadly, his time with his little girl was short-lived. In the “NCIS” episode titled “Requiem,” viewers witnessed firsthand how agent Gibbs’ life-changing loss played out in flashbacks.
Kelly, a budding equestrian and pianist, who loved spending time with her parents, became the target of a Mexican drug cartel after her mom, Shannon, witnessed a murder.
Although the government put the two under witness protection, the cartel lord Pedro Hernandez managed to get to them before Shannon could testify against him.
After shooting NCIS agent Kurt Mitchell while he was driving Gibbs’ family, the car ran into an accident, killing the remaining occupants.Gibbs never successfully rebuilt his life or overcame the loss, even after three more marriages.
Ultimately, his quest to find peace within himself led to his decision to remain in Alaska during his final appearance on “NCIS.” However, fans are yet to make peace with his exit from the show.
While Mark Harmon is leaving NCIS as a lone man after an adventurous stint, his real-life persona thankfully has a beautiful family to fall back to post-retirement.
That said, how many kids make up his off-screen family? Who is the actor’s wife? Does Mark Harmon have a daughter? If so, how close-knit is their relationship, and does his family have any parallel to his onscreen one? Let’s find out.
Who Is Mark Harmon’s Daughter?
Mark Harmon has no daughter in real life. However, he has two grown-up sons, Sean Harmon and Ty Harmon. He shares his two kids with his longtime wife, Pam Dawber.
Despite being born to famous parents, Mark Harmon’s kids grew up away from the spotlights. Explaining their decision to keep their children away from public eyes, the mom of two once said:
“Notice you don’t see us in the magazines. When you’re married, that’s real life. And to go and plaster your kids… I’m sorry, I’m not for that.”
Thanks to the couple’s reluctance to publicize their kids’ identities, little about them is known to the public. This uncertainty is perhaps one of the contributing factors to having many mistake him for the father of actress Angie Harmon.
Who Are Mark Harmon’s Kids?
Although he has no daughter and certainly is not the dad of Angie Harmon, Mark Harmon has two sons following in his footsteps.
His first child Sean Harmon landed the planet on April 25, 1988. Sean spent his early years away from the spotlight. Yet, he eventually found his way to the entertainment industry like his parents.

Mark and Pam are also parents to Ty Christian Harmon. Their son, born on June 25, 1992, grew up to pursue a Hollywood career like the rest of his family. He is a screenwriter credited in such movies as “Catholic Schoolgirl Chainsaw Showdown.”
