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 pair has had their hands full.
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 three more children, and their love for their father is inspiring. At the age of 29, Michael received a Parkinson’s disease diagnosis.
The pair has been married since 1988 and has four children: Esme, 20, Aquinnah and Schuyler, identical twins, all 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 world.
The singer’s only kid who also happens to be Michael’s lookalike often updates his followers on his family life and shares pictures of the musician.
Michael’s oldest kid, Sam, is a mirror image of his dad.

Sam never misses 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 a cohesive front, 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 girls today. I love you so much.
Michael takes enormous delight in being a dad, and the Michaels are a very close-knit family.
Their youngest kid went to college in 2019, leaving her parents officially empty-nesters; but, because to the COVID-19 outbreak, they all had to relocate to Long Island to be under the same roof.
In an interview in the year 2020, he stated, “We were typically linger-after-dinner sorts anyhow, and now we were lingering and discussing about what people were going through. “Putting together jigsaw puzzles, seeing 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 just 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 epiphany occurs as he continues to battle with his health. Since discovering he had cancer, 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 assist in this cause.
