Michael lives with Enzo in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, in a beautiful home boasting a garden – something that's rare in New York.

One of the things the star enjoys most about where he lives is that he is able to fit in with the crowds and not get spotted when out and about.

Michael often shares sweet photos of his four-legged friend Enzo

He previously told New York Times: "I like the Upper West Side, because, being a father, I like the family feel to it. You see mothers with strollers, people walking their dogs. One thing I love about the neighbourhood, when you go into places, it's not like, 'Michael!' I'm another person who's just there."
