Beyond his tremendous career in the entertainment business, Michael J. Fox is the epitome of a family man when no one is looking.
He and Tracy Pollan, his loving wife, have four children who are now adults, so the couple has had their hands full.
The support the children offer their father is extremely encouraging. Michael was already a father of one when he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at the age of 29, but they went on to have another child. After receiving a Parkinson’s disease diagnosis at the age of 29, Michael’s time on the big screen came to an end.
The couple has been married since 1988 and has four children: Esme, 20, Aquinnah and Schuyler, identical twins, both 27 years old, and Sam, 33.
Unlike their father, they all prefer to stay out of the spotlight whenever possible. Only their eldest sibling has a personal Instagram account that is accessible to the whole public.
The singer’s only son who also happens to be Michael’s doppelganger regularly updates his fans on his family life and shares pictures of the artist.
Michael’s oldest child, Sam, is a carbon copy of his dad.
Sam never fails to celebrate his father’s birthday by showing him how much he loves and appreciates him.
Michael’s twins have taken part in a number of public engagements with their father to raise awareness of Parkinson’s illness and show an unified appearance, despite the fact that not much is known about them.
On the occasion of their most recent birthday, the Back to the Future star showed them some kindness.
“Twice the love, a hundred times the laughs,” he wrote as the description of one of his Instagram images. “Happy birthday to my gorgeous daughters today. I love you so much.”
Michael takes enormous delight in being a dad, and the Michaels are a very close-knit family.
Her parents officially became empty-nesters when their youngest kid left for college in 2019, but due to the COVID-19 epidemic, they were all forced to relocate to Long Island to live together.
He stated, “We were normally linger-after-dinner types anyway, and now we were staying and discussing about what people were going through,” in an interview he gave in 2020.
“Putting together jigsaw puzzles, observing Tracy cook up a storm, and interacting with the other guests, including these incredible kids and this great lady. I find it difficult to accept that this is my life.”
Although it is clear that Michael enjoys spending time with his family, he recently informed them about the passing of his beloved mother, Phyllis Fox, at the age of 92. Everyone in his family suffered a significant loss as a result.
The revelation occurs as he continues to battle with his health. Since discovering he had Parkinson, Michael has devoted his life to the pursuit of a cure, and throughout the years, he has collected more than $1 billion in donations to aid in this cause.
