There's No Place Like Home for Tracy Pollan

Tracy Pollan gives her husband of twenty years Michael J. Fox rave reviews in a new interview with the NY Daily News, revealing that the 47-year-old actor is “a very hands-on dad” to the couple’s four children. His abilities come in handy when the 48-year-old actress accepts a role, as she recently did for Lifetime’s The Natalee Holloway Story. “When I am not there, he’s there every night; he’s up every morning getting them ready for school and giving homework help if they need it,” she explains.

That said, Michael isn’t put to the test too often. Describing herself as “a bit of a homebody,” Tracy admits “It doesn’t take long for me to get to the point where I’m ready to be home again.” While the family of six has faced its fair share of adversity, Tracy isn’t one to wallow. “Everybody has their challenges, I couldn’t say that we have more challenges than other people, they’re just different,” she says, adding:

“Happiness is definitely a priority in our household. That the kids are happy and everybody is comfortable. Self-esteem is very important. So I do think that that is a point of reference for us.”

Tracy and Michael are parents to Sam Michael, 19, twins Aquinnah Kathleen and Schuyler Frances, 14, and Esmé Annabelle, 7.

Mom Said It

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
