Despite being embroiled in a child custody battle with his ex-wife, Michael Strahan paid tribute to their twin daughters Sophia and Isabella, who recently turned 15.


The "Strahan, Sara and Keke" co-host has always been a doting dad despite packed schedules, and on October 28, he showed that side of him again.

Michael, 47, took to Instagram with a collage of photos featuring himself and his daughters at different stages of their lives.

Jean is also asking that Michael be made to pay $18,378 in monthly child support instead of the less than $13,000 that he currently pays.

One photo showed a much-younger Sophia and Isabella cuddling a puppy, while another showed the twins snuggling up to dad in identical football jerseys.


Michael gushed in the caption:

"Happy 15th Birthday to these two smart, sweet and beautiful young women. My life is better and full with you both in it! Love you."


The twins’ birthday comes on the heels of Michael and their mother Jean Muggli Strahan’s child support tussle.

Earlier this year, Jean dragged the NFL star-turned-TV host to court over $547,000 in allegedly unpaid child support and his half of fees for Sophia and Isabella’s riding lessons, Page Six reported.

Jean is also asking that Michael be made to pay $18,378 in monthly child support instead of the less than $13,000 that he currently pays.


After their divorce in 2006, the "Fox NFL Sunday" co-host was ordered to pay $18,000 a month but the amount was decreased in 2009. Now, Jean is claiming her ex can afford the $18,000+ she’s suggesting because he makes enough from his TV hosting gigs.

Michael and Jean have been battling it out in court, but the former Defensive end has refrained from making any comments about the case publicly. Instead, his social media feed is chock-full of Inspirational and funny posts.

As with the twins’ birthday tribute, Michael is also known to share footage of hangouts with the kids. Besides Sophia and Isabella, he is also dad to daughter Tanita, 27, and son, Michael Jr., 24, with his first ex-wife Wanda Hutchins.


Michael once told PEOPLE of his blended clan:

"My kids give me strength. I love being with the kids. To me, it’s all about family, now more than anything… My kids have a different upbringing than I had, but the love is the same. The belief in them is the same."

Earlier this year, the dad of four posed happily with the twins at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Sports 2019 awards in Santa Monica, California.

Happy birthday Sophia and Isabella!
