With his oldest child and only son — 19-year-old Sam Michael — away at college, Michael J. Fox is seriously outnumbered! His three daughters and wife Tracy now rule the roost, leading the 47-year-old actor to jokingly lament during a Wednesday appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly that “the estrogen level in the house is way out of whack.” He noted,

“Even the dog is a girl.”

Fourteen-year-old twins Aquinnah Kathleen and Schuyler Frances are “wonderfully sweet girls,” Michael said, even if they often give their dad a run for his money. “It’s like, wear a flak jacket and just keep your head in!” he admitted. As for Sam, Michael said he is “a great kid” who is focusing his studies on science.

“He’s taller and smarter and better looking than me. He’s so tall, I can’t get a good look at him.”

In addition to Sam, Aquinnah and Schuyler, Michael and Tracy — who have been married for 20 years — are parents to Esmé Annabelle, 7.

Michael appeared on Rescue Me last evening on F/X; His new book Always Looking Up: The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist is available now.

Oh poor Michael! My sister in laws father was in the same situation except he had no boys, just five daughters a wife and a female dog!

Michael is such an inspiration to the world, showing that just because you have a debilitating disease that doesn’t mean you can’t live your life. With all of his charity work, and research funding for Parkinsons, he just shows what an amazing man he is. Marty Mcfly you are a true class act!

Michael J. Fox is an amazing human being. He has been challenged with a terrible disease, yet he doesn’t let it define who he is. He is an inspiration in my book. I adore him! God bless Michael and his family.
