Dr Oz Posts Group Photo with All His Grown-Up Kids for Thanksgiving
Dr. Oz gave his Instagram followers a rare photo of all his grown-up children together and gushed about the family moment in his caption.
One sad aspect of being a parent is watching your children grow up and move away from home. Dr. Oz is familiar with that sadness, which made having all his children home for the Thanksgiving holiday more special.

The talk show host shared on his Instagram, a photo from his children's visit. In it, he got flanked by his children — Daphne, Zoe, Arabella, and Oliver, and grandchildren — Philomena, Domenica, Jovan, and Giovanna. He gushed about the special moment in the caption, writing,
"Are family days a thing? If not, I'm starting it! I love having all my kids home for the holidays — it doesn't get much better than this. #FamilyFriday."

Dr. Oz's followers loved the rare family moment and complimented the TV personality on his "Beautiful family." The dad-of-four shares his children with his wife of over thirty years, Lisa Oz. The two got introduced by the latter's parents when the doctor was in medical school, and his wife was a college student.
After nearly destroying his first date with Lisa due to his lack of knowledge about vegetarians, the "The Dr. Oz Show" host and his then-girlfriend became inseparable.
The two support each other through thick and thin, and the mom-of-four had her husband's back when ten physicians from Columbia University asked for his dismissal in 2015.
In an interview with People at the time, Dr. Oz said about his wife,
"[Lisa is] the best; she rubs my head; she gives me ideas. She calms me down…"

The two overcame that trying time, and became stronger together. In 2018, the TV host told Closer Weekly that one of the secrets to the strong bond he shares with Lisa is "Reinvention."
He said that since they've both changed a lot since they got married, he has to continually reinvent their relationship to suit the stage of life they are in. Dr. Oz has also reinvented himself through the years.

The University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine graduate lectured at the Columbia University surgery department for years before his regular appearances on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" got him his TV hosting gig. Since then, the doctor has become a famous TV personality and helped people solve their health issues.

The TV host's tenacity comes from learning from his father at a young age that he can always find a path in life if he keeps on pushing. Dr. Oz passed that lesson down to his children, his most significant asset, and the biggest accomplishment.
