In December 1989, Allen welcomed his first daughter, Katherine, together with his then-wife Laura Deibel. However, they decided to separate in 1999. Their divorce was finalized in 2003.

In October 2006, Allen found love once more and exchanged vows with Jane Hajduk. They commemorated their union with a charming outdoor ceremony in the scenic Grand Lake, Colorado. Allen’s daughter, Katherine, was present to witness this event.

While Katherine doesn’t have a high-profile entertainment career, she has consistently supported her father at various events over the years. In November 2004, she proudly stood by his side as he received a star on the illustrious Hollywood Walk of Fame. Two years later, Katherine accompanied Allen and his wife Hajduk to the premiere of The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause.

In June 2019, Allen united his blended family as they graced the premiere of Toy Story 4. Accompanied by his wife and daughters, Katherine and Elizabeth, they struck a pose on the red carpet alongside Allen’s iconic character, Buzz Lightyear, and other Toy Story characters.

Following their marriage in 2006, the couple had their daughter, Elizabeth, in March 2009. Elizabeth has embarked on her acting journey, following in the footsteps of her father. She made her debut in the beloved Disney+ series The Santa Clauses. The show, which initially premiered in 2022 and returned for a second season in November 2023, features Elizabeth portraying the onscreen daughter of Allen’s Santa Claus. 

Elizabeth Allen-Dick recently roasted her dad for only watching his own Christmas films during the holiday season. “Every Christmas we watch all three of them,” Allen-Dick revealed to the New York Post. Tim Allen was quick to add that they watch other films during Christmas. “We do watch other movies! Not many,” Tim Allen insisted. “We do watch other people, other actors.”

Still, Tim Allen’s daughter revealed only one Santa Claus is coming to their town.“But he also won’t watch any other Santa Claus movies other than himself,” she teased. “No, I don’t mind ‘It’s a Wonderful Life,’” Tim shot back. “But Santa Claus movies I get kind of proprietary about.”

Tim Allen expanded on his thoughts about cinematic Kris Kringles. “I can’t watch another Santa Claus movie. Especially when they’re bad Santas,” Allen explained. “I know there are people that like the ugly Santa movies but sometimes I’m like, ‘Eh, I don’t know if I like bad Santas.’ You know, dressed up with knives and stabbing. I don’t like that.”
