"Everyone looks alike," wrote one, while a second called them, "triplets" and a third said, "you have STRONG GENES Dr. Oz".

He told People that he and his wife Lisa adore having their offspring and their children visit their New Jersey home and admitted: "I like it when the kids run into the house and they can't wait to get in here. It becomes like a beehive."

Before the COVID-19 pandemic struck he told Closer Weekly that he considered himself to be a "doting" grandparent and said: "I play with them all the time.

"They want to see me because, when they do see me, they're going to do something fun. I always want to do something active and I want to see how they react if things don't go well."
