Michael J. Fox Named One of His Daughters After His Favorite Massachusetts Town
When you think of Michael J. Fox, he's definitely a celebrity that everyone likes. You can even watch every episode of the show that made him a household name, Family Ties, on Pluto-TV. He's only in the media when he's going to be in a movie, television show, or is advocating for his Michael J. Fox Foundation, which is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's Disease. That's something Michael was diagnosed with all the way back in 1991.
I remember that when the announcement came out, I teared up. Michael is still as active as he can be acting, whether it's in his most recent television show The Good Wife, which ended its run in 2020, or as voices for various movie characters.
Of course, his main focus is his foundation with his family, including his daughter, who's named after a quaint Massachusetts town.
If you follow Michael or his wife Tracy Pollan, whom he met on Family Ties, you know they absolutely love to vacation in Martha's Vineyard, and have a home in Aquinnah.
Aquinnah is located on the very western tip of Martha's Vineyard, and according to our sister station WBSM in New Bedford, MA, that most favorite sanctuary is where they came up with the name 'Aquinnah' for one of their twin daughters.
Michael and Tracy's other children are Sam, born in 1989, Aquinnah's twin Schuyler, born in 1995, and daughter Esme Annabelle, born in 2001.
