Canadian-American actor and film producer Michael J Fox and his wife Tracy Pollan are proud parents of four beautiful children. Here is a detailed insight into his large family. 

Famous actor Michael J Fox has made an impact in the Hollywood scene over the years. He is popularly known for his iconic role in the blockbuster 1988 movie, "Back to the Future."

However, besides being a remarkable actor, Fox is also a proud father of four lovely children, Sam, Aquinnah, Schuyler, and Esme. The kids are shared with his beautiful wife, actress Tracy Pollan.

The love birds have been together for 32 years. They tied the knot in 1988, and one year after their union, they welcomed their first son, Sam, in 1989. In 1995, they also became proud parents of the twins, Aquinnah and Schuyler. 

Six years later, the couple welcomed their last child, Esmé, in 2001. After spending such a long time together, Fox and Pollan's love only seems to wax on stronger. The pair once revealed that their upbringing was a major influence on their long-lasting bond.


Fox explained that both their families were large, they were both middle children, and they all had a huge sense of humor, so he and his wife successfully recreated all of it. 

He also added that to maintain their special bond, they usually gave each other the benefit of the doubt and found the best things about life and about themselves to constantly celebrate. 

Pollan has also proved to be a multi-talented queen, with several movie features and even an award nomination.


The beautiful couples started their love story when they met on the set of the hit 80s sitcom, "Family Ties." Pollan was 25 at the time while Fox was 24. It was only fitting that they both played on-screen lovers in the show. 

Though they were in their separate relationships offscreen, their love eventually found each other on the set of the 1988 movie, "Bright Lights, Big City," and soon, they became an item. 


On December 26, 1987, seven months after they started dating, Fox popped the question, and they went on to tie the knot on July 16, 1988, at the West Mountain Inn in Arlington, Vt.

Fox and Pollan have also had to battle their share of ups and downs. In 1991, the actor was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Their love, tested during this challenging time, however, proved true because they managed to scale through despite the setback.


Now, with four kids and an unbreakable bond, their love continues to serve as sources of inspiration. Their children have also proved to be a rather progressive lot, with Sam working in a startup company and Esme still in school. The twins, however, keep a low profile.

Pollan has also proved to be a multi-talented queen, with several movie features and even an award nomination. Fox has also made a name for himself in Hollywood. However, it is safe to say that being fantastic parents is their greatest achievement yet.
