Michael J. Fox took his son Sam to see the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden and everyone noticed how much they look alike.
When it comes to parents and their kids, strong genes are no surprise. At 5”11, Sam Michael Fox is at least half a foot taller than his father, but the facial resemblance is quite striking.
According to Daily Mail, the 28-year-old is, of course, the son of the ’80s icon from Back To The Future. He’s all grown up now and, well, from recent pictures, he’s going to have a hard time if he ever wants to deny his heritage.
The ’80s may be but a distant memory, but Fox remains a household name. He continues to make appearances on TV and in film, this despite the fact he’s been battling Parkinson’s disease since 1991 when he was diagnosed at the age of 29.
After receiving his diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, he created the Michael J. Fox Foundation to support researchers toward finding a cure. His wife, Tracy Pollan, has always been supporting the actor since they married in 1988.
Fox has largely kept his children out of the spotlight; save for the occasional TV or red carpet appearance, so it may come as a shock to some that he has a doppelganger son. Sam was just 2 years old when his father learned he had the condition.
After Sam graduated high school, he attended Stanford University for a couple of years before leaving to work for an online farm-to-table company. Now, he’s jumped into sales for a startup firm that links traveling out-of-towners with homeowner/hosts.
Michael has three more children besides Sam, and they are all girls. The youngest one is named Esmé Annabelle Fox, and she is now 16 years old. Aquinnah Kathleen Fox and Schuyler Frances Fox are twins and were born on February 15, 1995.
All of Fox’s kids grew up in New York with relatively normal childhoods in spite of the fact that they have famous parents.
