We all know and love Hollywood actor Michael J Fox; not only has he given us some of the most memorable movies but has also done so much to raise awareness surrounding Parkinson’s Disease.
But, did you know that he has four children? He and his wife Tracy Pollan have a son Sam Michael, daughter Esme Annabelle and also twin girls Aquinnah Kathleen and Schuyler Frances.
The couple’s twin girls are 23 years old and you won’t believe how much they look like their parents.
The screen legend Fox, 57, married actress Tracy Pollan on July 16, 1988, at West Mountain Inn in Arlington, Vermont.
They met while they were filming “Family Ties” together.
But, just three years later Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. He was just 29 years old.
It’s clear from social media that he has a strong family network around him and they are all living life to the full.
Both Schuyler and Aquinnah attend college; the first is studying at Pomona College and the second at Duke.
Looking at the girls you may think they look more like their mom but you would spot the likeness if you looked at old pictures of their famous dad from the ’80s.
When Fox was first diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease he reportedly started drinking heavily.
Thankfully, he stopped, sought help and was brave enough to disclose his condition in 1998. Since then he has been a strong advocate and inspiration to those battling with the disease.
He set up a foundation to help find a cure and has been honored for his work on Parkinson’s disease research.
Fox received an honorary doctorate in medicine from Karolinska Institutet for his contribution to research in Parkinson’s disease, on March 5, 2010.
Since 2000, the Michael J. Fox Foundation has raised more than $750 million to help find a cure for Parkinson’s.
He is an inspiration to us all and it’s good to see such a happy and beautiful family surrounding him.
