Michael J. Fox pays tribute to his longtime love and wife Tracy Pollan on her 64th birthday

Michael J. Fox is paying tribute to his lifelong love and wife Tracy Pollan on her 64th birthday.

The retired actor, 63, showed off his romantic side when he took to his Instagram page to share his loving and poetic message on Saturday, June 22.

“In every way, it’s beautiful Tracy’s beautiful day,” the former Family Ties star captioned her post.

‘I love you and today will be magnificent. Always forever your Mike with so much love. Happy Birthday. “It’s going to be an epic day.”

For the cover photo, Fox shared a black and white photo of his wife of 35 years, all glamorous.

The couple met in 1985, when Pollan was cast as Ellen, the love interest of Fox character Alex P. Keaton, on the hit NBC comedy Family Ties.

However, they did not start dating until two years later, in 1987, when they reunited for the film adaptation of Jay McInerney’s novel Bright Lights, Big City.

They finally married in July 1988, at the West Mountain Inn in Arlington, Vermont, after less than two years together.

The couple are parents of four children: their son Sam, 35, his twin daughters Aquinnah and Schuyler, 29, and his youngest daughter, Esmé, 22.

While the couple has shared their lives for more than 35 years and counting, Pollan previously admitted that he didn’t have a stellar first impression of Fox.

“I guess I thought he was a little arrogant,” Pollan recalled during an appearance on Inside The Actors Studio, as reported parade.

However, after getting to know him a little better, sparks flew.

The retired activist and actor showed off his romantic side when he took to his Instagram page to share his loving and poetic message on Saturday, June 22.

“We started working together and I had a completely different impression and how completely the opposite he was: just funny and very smart, and all these other things came out during those first two weeks that we worked together,” he explained.

Life changed for the couple dramatically when Fox (born Michael Andrew Fox) was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991.

He did not share his diagnosis publicly until 1998.

“One of the things I’ll always love Tracy for is that in that moment she didn’t blink an eye,” Fox recalled. “She’s on the front lines with me every day. She never pretends to know as much as I do.

‘And the other thing Tracy does is, if there’s something funny, let’s get to the funny thing. We’ll deal with the tragedy later.

Pollan has supported Fox every step of the way, leading to the launch of his Michael J. Fox Foundation in 2000 to help fund Parkinson’s disease research in an effort to find a cure.

Most recently, the couple participated in the making and release of the Apple TV+ film Still: A Michael J. Fox Story (2023), which won Best Documentary Feature at the National Board Of Review Gala, as well as earning seven nominations at the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards.

She also came out to support him at Michael J. Fox Foundation’s A Country Thing Happened On The Way To Cure Parkinson’s events over the years.

Fox and Pollan, who have one of Hollywood’s longest-running romances, are often asked how they keep their marriage strong over the years and decades.

“It’s interesting being married for 35 years,” Fox shared. ‘Yeah. I mean, the joke is that you say I’ve been married 35 years and they’ve been the best 35 years of my life, so think about that for a second.

He added: “It’s great to have a partner and to have someone who knows you a certain way when everyone thinks they know you.” (Only) one person really knows you.’
