Michael Strahan Recently Lost His Father
The holidays will be a little sadder this year for Michael Strahan and his family. It will be the first Christmas the family celebrates since Strahan’s father died. The patriarch passed away in October. But the former NFL defensive end turned talk show host appears to be trying to keep his spirits up. Previously, Strahan opened up about how hard his father’s death hit him.
“I lost my hero and it’s still hard to believe my dad is no longer with us physically,” Strahan said. “But I know his spirit lives on thru me and the rest of the family. The biggest goal in everything I’ve ever done was to make him proud. Knowing that I did that gives me peace but also pushes me to continue because I know he’s watching from above.”
Additionally, Strahan’s children struggled with the loss of their grandfather. Strahan credits his father with pushing him to become the man that he is today. He also urged others to cherish the time they have with their families, especially during the holidays.
“Without him, I’m not sure where I’d be but I know I wouldn’t have anything close to the life I have now,” Strahan said. “Love you Dad and I’m honored to be your son!!”
Right now, Strahan is making the most of being a father himself.
