Michael adores his children 

He loves nothing more than spending time with his offspring and regularly celebrates them on Instagram. 

Opening up about his close bond with his kids in an interview with People, the proud father gave an insight into raising his children and co-parenting with their moms.

Michael is always there for his children 

He said: "I think a lot of times when you split, people assume that the mother is supposed to take responsibility for the kids. But from day one, it was very important for me to be active, to be a part of their life."

His oldest children lived in Germany during their childhood, and Michael added: "I was constantly on planes and phones. And it's very hard – of course it's hard with them being in Germany. But one thing I learned is, you make time for what you want to make time for."
