Michael J. Fox and spouse Tracy Pollan rejoice in their anniversary – thriving together after 35 years! Read Fox’s heartfelt tribute to his partner.

One of the most esteemed couples in Tinseltown includes Michael J. Fox and his spouse Tracy Pollan.

Their steadfast union for over three decades has seen them support each other through ups and downs, especially during Fox’s battle with Parkinson’s disease.

Marking their recent 35th wedding anniversary, the actor penned a heartfelt tribute to his beloved wife.

The 62-year-old Back to the Future star has shared numerous pictures of Tracy on social media over the years. “35 years of joy, togetherness, listening, and cherishing you,” Fox wrote in the caption. “Thank you for it all. Forever yours, Mike.”

“I love you so much!!!” Pollan replied in the comments. She also posted her own Instagram tribute to her husband:

“Happy anniversary my love. Here’s to many more wonderful adventures together. I couldn’t love you more,” she expressed. Last month, Pollan celebrated her 63rd birthday, and Fox tweeted a heartfelt birthday message to her: “She showers the people she loves with love, she shows them the way that she feels,” he wrote.

“My forever Summer girl, my love, my best friend, and the most beautiful amazing mom to our four incredible kids. Love love love you.”

The love story of Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan began in 1988 when they tied the knot. They first met on the set of Family Ties, where Pollan portrayed Alex P. Keaton’s fiancée, and their connection grew on the set of the film Bright Lights, Big City.

The couple married on July 16, 1988, and together they are parents to their son Sam, identical twin daughters Aquinnah and Schuyler, and daughter Esmé.

In 1991, just a few years into their marriage, Fox received a devastating diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease.

“It was scary,” Fox recalled on The Late Show With David Letterman in 2015. “I was 29 years old, and it was the last thing I expected to hear. I thought I’d hurt my shoulder doing some stunt because I had a twitch in my pinkie. And the doctor said, ‘You have Parkinson’s disease.’ He said, ‘The good news is that you have 10 years of work left.'”

Fox credits his wife’s love and support for getting him through the toughest days as he came to terms with the condition.

“We didn’t know what to expect,” Fox shared. “One of the things I’ll always love Tracy for is that at that moment, she didn’t blink.” For 35 years, they have been an unwavering source of love and support for each other, and their bond remains strong.

“I think we truly listen to each other; we are there for each other when we need each other,” Pollan explained. “And then we also give each other space when that’s needed. Just sensing what’s required at the moment and trying to be there.”

“Tracy provides our family with everything we need. Any goodness in our family, anything positive that we want, comes from her,” Fox added.

While Fox announced his acting retirement in 2021, he recently acknowledged that his struggle with Parkinson’s disease was “getting tougher,” and he knew he wouldn’t live to be 80, but he insisted that he was still “happy.”

Through his Michael J. Fox Foundation, Fox continues to make remarkable contributions, funding research to develop more effective Parkinson’s therapies and a cure. The organization, having raised over $1 billion for research initiatives, stands as the largest non-profit financier of Parkinson’s disease research.
