Will Estes was dating actress Vanessa Lengies for almost two years from 2002 to 2004. He was also briefly seeing the Hong Kong-born model and Muay Thai fighter, Mia Kang, in 2012. No, Will Estes is not gay, but he is single currently, but seeing how he likes to enjoy privacy, we wouldn’t be sure.
Will Estes’s Net Worth.
Will Estes’s career began at a young age as a replacement actor for a young Brandon DeMott Capwell in the soap opera ‘Santa Barbara‘ in 1984 when he was only around six years old.
Estes would continue bagging small roles in several small and big films, TV shows, and commercials. His breakthrough role came with the 2000 submarine film U-571. Another one of his essential films was a small appearance as a police officer in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises.
However, he became established as a TV actor since the beginning of his career. Right after his first TV role in Santa Barbara, he was a child actor for two different roles in two episodes of ‘Highway to Heaven.’ However, his real talent shone when he got to play the role of series regular Will McCollough in ‘The New Lassie‘ from 1989 to 1992.
He did several other TV movies and shows, finally getting more recurring and essential roles in series like ‘It Had to be you,’ ‘Boy Meets World,’ and ‘Full House.’ However, none of them made him as famous as ‘Kirk‘ and ‘American Dreams.’ He also appears in CBS police drama ‘Blue Bloods‘ as Sergeant Jamie Reagan, a role he began portraying from 2010 to present.

Will Estes Height in Comparison to Rest of the Blue Bloods Cast.
According to most websites, Estes’s height is 5 feet and 10 inches or 1.77 meters, which we find odd because his co-star and leading cast member Donnie Wahlberg’s height is also 5 feet and 10 inches. The bizarre thing here is that Donnie Wahlberg is a little taller than Will Estes.
We think that our online sources may be wrong here, and Will Estes’s height is around 5 feet 8 inches or 1.73 meters to be more exact.
Let us see how that fares out with the rest of the Blue Bloods cast’s height, shall we? His on-screen wife, Eddie Janko, aka Vanessa Ray’s height is 5 feet and 3 inches or 163 meters. I
f you are a ‘Jamko’ (couple name combining their character names, Jamie and Janko) fan, then you should know that no way Will Estes has a height of 5 feet and 10 inches according to their height differences.
Will Estes’s Age; Is He Youngest Among the Blue Bloods Cast?
Will Estes’s young looks have everybody believing that he is the youngest of the Blue Bloods cast, but he is actually the 5th oldest cast member of the show.
The top 4 oldest are as evident as the family storyline plots with Len Carious being the oldest at 81 years old, which is fair considering that he is playing the role of the Reagan family patriarch Henry who is at least in his 90s.
Similarly, his on-screen son, Frank Reagan, played by the legendary Tom Selleck, comes second at 75 years old. The real age of actors is quite baffling sometimes.
To think that Selleck is only 6 years younger than the actor playing his father is shocking, but his character’s age is set to be moreover in his 60s. Donnie Wahlberg fits his character’s age at 51 years old, and so does Bridget Moynahan at 49 years of age. She does play his younger sister, Erin, after all.
Finally, comes Will Estes, who is 41 years old being born on October 21, 1978. Estes will also soon be turning 42 years old in a couple of months. He was born in Los Angeles, California, where he still currently resides. Furthermore, his TV wife, Vanessa Ray, is 39 years old in 2020.

However, don’t feel stupid for thinking that he was related to Rob Estes as Will has been asked that question a lot. So, for both humor and out of annoyance, he began answering that yes, he was not only related to Rob Estes, but he was his father who doesn’t acknowledge him.
“People used to always ask me if I was related to Rob Estes and I used to try to start to entertain myself. So, I used to say, ‘He’s my dad but he doesn’t really acknowledge me anymore.’” He would eventually tell people that he was just kidding.
