“Back to the Future’s” Michael J. Fox just celebrated his birthday which his wife, Tracy Pollan, honored by sharing a sweet post and dedication on her Instagram account.
In celebration of his birthday, Tracy Pollan posted a touching tribute for her husband, Michael J. Fox, along with a series of photos of the sweet couple on Instagram. Her caption included a dedication to her Fox, whom she referred to as: “my love, my one and only, my best friend, one very hot guy.”
A SWEET TRIBUTE
The first photo posted showed Fox blowing the candles on his cake while the other two were photos of the couple smiling side by side. Fans were quick to wish the iconic Marty McFly actor a happy birthday, addressing him as their “favorite actor in the whole world.”
Fox is best known for his portrayal as Marty McFly who traveled to and from decades in the “Back to the Future" franchise. He was not only a great actor but a comedian in American sitcoms as well, making his way to stardom.
DEALING WITH PARKINSONS
On the height of his Hollywood fame in 1991, tragedy struck and America’s favorite time traveler fell into a degenerative illness better known as Parkinson’s disease.
Then 30-years-old, Fox hid his condition with the thought of losing acting opportunities due to his ailment. For the next couple of years, he continued his career in show business.
An outstanding performance in 1996’s “Spin City” garnered Fox an Emmy and three Golden Globes amid his secret battle with the disease which he continuously fought to hide. The truth broke in 1998 after he publicly announced his diagnosis and spoke about it in an interview.
TRACY AND MICHAEL
It was a difficult pill to swallow having to find out of the disease only two years into their marriage, yet Pollan quickly came to terms with her husband’s ailment and stuck with him despite knowing Fox’s career may be in shambles within ten years.
Throughout his battle, Pollan held his hand and supported Fox in every decision he made. Like any couple, heated arguments would occur from time to time, yet their undying love would persist and prevail in every circumstance.
“We are at a stage where midway into our arguments, we don’t even remember what caused the argument anymore. Besides, we ALWAYS gave each other benefit of the doubt,” the couple shared.
