“The Conners” star Michael Fishman used his Instagram to share a loving snapshot of himself alongside his daughter Isabelle and the fans couldn’t ignore the fact that she looks just like the actor.
39-year-old actor, writer, and producer Michael Fishman recently took to his Instagram profile to share a beautiful image of himself and his daughter Isabelle during a snowy day out in Big Bear Lake, California.
On March 1, 2021, Michael and Isabelle, who the actor shares with former wife Jennifer Briner, can be seen posing for a joint selfie with a winter setting as a background, and the two clearly resemble each other.

The father and daughter smiled at the camera as the snow kept felling on them, covering their warm clothing. Isabelle wore a blue hoodie over a white one, while Michael wore a baseball cap and a winter jacket. He captioned the snapshot:
“Growing, building, maximizing our time together.”
The many fans of the “Roseanne” star didn’t miss the striking resemblance his daughter has to him, and several of them took to the comments section of the post to point out that fact.
“She looks just like you. Love this pic,” wrote a user of the social network, echoing the words of many others. “What a special photo of you with your daughter!” wrote a second person. “Such a great dad,” a third fan added.
A DEVASTATING LOSS
Michael is a devoted father not only to Isabelle and his other biological child, son Aaron, but also to adoptive daughter Camille, who became part of the family in 2018 alongside her brother Larry, following Michael’s split with Briner.
Sadly, Larry passed away due to an accidental drug overdose in June 2020, which sent Michael in a journey of grieving as a parent, as he only opened up about four months after the tragic event.
As Michael told talk show host Tamron Host in October, he had to deal with the haunting thoughts that he might arrived at Larry’s life too late to keep him safe from harm.
As much as Michael values his privacy and that of his family, Michael was finally willing to speak in public about the loss of his son with the hope of being of help to other families that might be dealing with similar situations.
A FATHER, FIRST
The "The Conners" star was already the father of two teenage children when he and his wife separated in 2018 in friendly terms, choosing separation over divorce, but he never imagined that he was going to feel the call to become a father again so soon.
While in the process of ending his marriage of 20 years to Briner, Michael reportedly met Camille first, and her younger brother Larry later, amid a mentorship program, and he couldn’t resist when she asked him to become her father.
