Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan’s 29-year-old daughter found the perfect way to celebrate her mom’s birthday.

Schuyler, the twin sister of Aquinnah, packaged herself as a bride for her storybook wedding in the Catskills and said her “I do’s” on June 22, the same day her mother turned 64.

Keep reading to learn about Schuyler’s wedding and the sweet birthday wishes Fox shared to his wife of 36 years.

Almost four decades ago, Michael J. Fox, 63, and Tracy Pollan, 64, were cast as on-screen lovers on the hit TV series Family Ties.

“He was very cocky,” Pollan recalls. “He was funny, but he was cocky.”

While the two were smitten with one another, Fox was dating Nancy McKeon, the star of the TV sitcom Facts of Life, and Pollan was with Kevin Bacon, who started dating Kyra Sedgwick in 1987, the same year he split with Pollan.

The Back to the Future star and his now wife met again on the set of the 1988 film Bright Lights, Big City and both single, they grabbed the opportunity and married that same year.

“It sounds really horrible, but it was one of those things,” Fox told People in 1989. Joking about their relationship statuses, he continues, “Someone goes, ‘Did you hear that so-and-so aren’t together anymore?’ And you go, ‘Hmm, that’s too bad. Where’s the phone?’”


Shortly after Pollan and Fox married, they became new parents to Sam Michael, who was born on May 30, 1989.

Only two years later, Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s and his doting wife willingly offered her unconditional support.

In early November 2023, the Teen Wolf star spoke on CBS Mornings and discussed how his loving wife has been his greatest champion for 35 years.

“The hardest part of my diagnosis was grappling with the certainty of the diagnosis and the uncertainty of the situation,” Fox said. “I only knew it would get worse. The diagnosis was definite, the progress was indefinite and uncertain. My wife made it clear that she was with me for the duration.”

Despite the challenges they were facing, the stars continued to grow their family and added twins, Aquinnah Kathleen and Schuyler Frances, born February 15, 1995, and Esmé Annabelle in November 2001.

Offering parenting advice to other moms and dads, Fox says, “Always be available to your kids. Because if you say, ‘Give me five minutes, give me 10 minutes,’ it’ll be 15, it’ll be 20. And then when you get there, the shine will have worn off whatever it is they wanted to share with you.”

‘Picture perfect’

With their adult children now out of their home, Pollan and Fox are empty nesters, enjoying life as they started 36 years ago

“We get more food,” Fox quips of the four children not being around to eat all the food. He adds, “They’re not taking it all.”

They’re also starting families of their own.

On June 24, People reported that that Schuyler, 29, married her long-time partner on Saturday, June 22, in the Catskill Mountains in New York.

“The weather was absolutely perfect, despite the heat wave,” a source tells People of the luxury wedding held at Hayfield Catskills. “They dined under a tent, and it really looked like a picture-perfect garden party. They seemed like such an adorable, gentle family.”

The tipster adds that political commentator George Stephanopoulos along with his comedian girlfriend Ali Wentworth, and Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey were in attendance.

Geusts stayed at the rustic but charming Bluebird Hunter Lodge and the bespoke mountain hotel, Scribner’s Catskill Lodge, which in the past hosted guests like actor Olivia Wide and Rami Malek, best known for his performance as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody.

‘Forever your Mike’

It was also Pollan’s 64th birthday.

Though the parents haven’t spoken publicly about Schuyler’s nuptials – and the daughters stay out of the spotlight – Sam, now 35, delivered an adorable birthday message to his mom with a shoutout to his sister.

“Happy birthday Teep!! I love you so much and I’m very excited that I actually get to spend the day with you!! ([Schuyler] don’t worry, your post is coming later),” he captions the photo where his mom is seen dancing with one of the twins.

And Fox shared the sweetest birthday message to his loving wife.

“In every beautiful way, it’s beautiful Tracy’s beautiful day. I love you and today will be magnificent,” the actor wrote via Instagram on Saturday alongside a black-and-white photo of Pollan. “Always forever your Mike with so-much love. Happy birthday. It’s gonna be an epic day.”
