Strahan Talks About Responsibility of Kids

For Michael Strahan, being a father of four has taught him a lot about life and responsibility.

In 2019, he spoke to Parade about what it was like to start his journey into fatherhood. “Having my two oldest kids at such a young age taught me about the ultimate responsibility of providing for your family. It made me more mature and also made me think through my decisions fully,” Strahan said.

He also shared that he hasn’t really changed his parenting methods much compared to the twins and his older kids. His younger kids also love the spotlight, but his older kids have attempted to keep to themselves more over the years.

Michael Strahan has made it clear what his main priority has been over the years. In 2020, he posted a sweet photo of all four of his kids together with the caption, “My kids are the reason why I #wakeuphappy every day! #FamilyOverEverything.”
