Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan first met in 1985 on the set of “Family Ties,” a popular TV show in which Michael played Alex P. Keaton and Tracy played his girlfriend, Ellen Reed.

Their real-life relationship began in 1987 when they reconnected while working on the movie “Bright Lights, Big City”. Michael has often shared that he fell for Tracy because she wasn’t afraid to call him out. She famously called him a “f**ing a*h*le,” which Michael found both surprising and refreshing.

They got married on July 16, 1988, and then they had four children together.

Despite the challenges they have faced, especially with Michael’s Parkinson’s disease diagnosis in 1991, their bond has only grown stronger. They often talk about their relationship. They support each other and take on life’s challenges as a team.
