MIchael J Fox

Michael J. Fox is making a comeback with a new NBC sitcom and he made a comeback at the 2012 Primetime Emmys on Sunday night while presenting the award for Outstanding Comedy Series.

"Steady as a rock," Fox said as the audience gave him a standing ovation. The actor - famously battling Parkinson's Disease - looked amazing as he walked the Emmy red carpet with his wife, Tracy Pollan, and their 23-year-old son Sam.

The actor admitted to Ryan Seacrest that he was inspired to get back into acting so he didn't "just sit around and get fat and old."

We're so glad he's back… and there's definitely no sign that he's "fat and old."

Fox isn't the only celebrity to bring his family to the Emmys. Check out who else made the Awards a family affair.

Sofia Vergara

"Modern Family" stunner Sofia Vergara had quite the entourage with her at the Emmys: She brought 18 family members to the show! The newly engaged actress walked the red carpet with her fiance, Nick Loeb - but her family wasn't that far behind.

"I brought all of my family. There are like 19 of them," the Colombia-born actress told Seacrest. How'd she sneak them all in? She didn't.

"I bought tickets for them," she laughed as she encouraged her mother, son and other family to wave at the cameras.

Tracy Morgan

"30 Rock" actor Tracy Morgan joked that he brought his cousins from Brooklyn - including one named Kool-Aid -- to the show during a bit with host Jimmy Kimmel. It was a joke, but he really did bring his fiance, Megan Wollover.

Morgan and Wollover have been engaged for a while and it was rumored they'd get married over the summer. However, he told E! that they were too busy to get married.

"She's awesome. She's totally with me. I love her. I was married for 21 years and I never thought I would get married again," he said of his gal earlier this year. The pair met on a blind date and Morgan said it just all made sense.

"She's 25, I'm 43. It took me 43 years but she's here."
