Who knew that the girl taking orders would eventually take his heart as well. And, by the time the movie released, they had already fallen for each other.

Adam and Jackie Sandler’s Kids: Sunny and Sadie
Jackie and Adam are blessed with two daughters. When their first kid Sadie Madie Sandler was born, the goofy guy Adam was nervous for the first time in his life. He didn’t know what was happening at the moment. He shared his first experience of becoming a dad as:
“You know what was funny? When my kid was born, I was so nervous, I didn’t know what I felt. Five minutes later, maybe 10 minutes later, it was me and the kid and a nurse. We walked down alone to just check the vital signs and all that stuff, and I had a chemical reaction in my body, where I loved the kid so much, and I was so nervous for her, and that’s when I lost my mind for the kid. So, it took 10 minutes to become a good dad. For the first 10 minutes, I was just lost.”
Sadie was born on May 6, 2006, in Los Angeles, California. The couple again became parents for the second time on November 2, 2008. On that day, their second daughter Sunny Sandler was born.
Talking to Irish Examiner, Sandler revealed how he used to slip on a princess costume to read his girl’s bedtime story. In a 2014 interview, Adam revealed how having kids has changed his perspective on life.
“I’m a worrier. I’ve learned in life now that when your kid is upset you’re rocked until they’re not upset anymore. Even when they’re not upset, you’re rocked. You’re always nervous because you want your kid to be happy. Now, I understand why my folks were always saying, ‘Be nice and be safe. Make sure everyone in the family is OK. That’s the most important thing.’ Making sure everyone in the family is OK is the most important thing. If the family hurts then you hurt.”
The two kids are walking in the footprint of their parents. Sandler’s kids are already into showbiz. Sadie, the elder daughter has appeared in the movies, Hotel Transylvania in 2012, Blended in 2014, and Grown Ups in 2010. Her sister, Sunny has also appeared in Grown Ups, Blended, and in Just Go With It in 2011.
However, the sad part is the sisters aren’t so fond of their father acting. In a talk show in Ellen in 2017, Ellen asked if he allows his kids to watch any of his movies.
With a smile in his face at the entire time, he said, “My kids always beg me to watch my movies. They’re like, ‘Please, it’s not fair! Let me watch your movies. Those people always yell things at you on the street. And, in just 20 minutes they are out!”
The family of four were recently spotted strolling on the street of NewYork after a basketball session amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Jackie is the driving force that keeps Adam Motivated
After being together for almost two decades, the pair have seen their ups and lows. But what keeps them running is their support for each other.
In an exclusive interview with W Magazine, he revealed how he feels awkward and tensed to do any on-screen romantic scenes. And, Jackie is always there pushing him to do a good job. He acknowledges that she absolutely loves the actress he works with.
In a talk show with Ellen in 2014, Adam told Ellen how supportive his wife is during his kissing scenes which sometimes feels weird for him.
“There’s no jealousy at all. She’s just like, ‘Get in there!’ We’re doing a nice romantic scene and I think I’m doing pretty great being as romantic as I can be and then like – Okay, moving on, let’s go, that was great, Drew. Good job. And I’m walking away and I just see my wife like (shaking her head) … ‘What’s the matter?’ [And she says] ‘Just please, for the sake of women, get in there and just look a little more alive.”
Looks like motivation from his wife has worked a charm in his movies as his “Murder Mystery”co-star Jennifer Aniston called him a good kisser.
She also encourages him to take up challenging roles. In 2019, Sandler gave an amazing performance as a gambling addict in the movie “Uncut Gems” which couldn’t have been possible without Jackie’s sheer determination and motivation toward her husband
Jackie Absolutely Adores Jennifer Aniston
Adam and Jennifer have worked together in two movies. But their friendship dates way back in 90s before they even became a household name.

And one of those friends happened to be Adam Sandler.
“I knew I was going to be friends with her,” Sandler said.
But it’s not just Adam who adores Aniston. His wife Jackie just admires the friends actor. During Adam’s speech on Aniston’s Hollywood walk of fame in 2012, he talked about his love for the actress.
“I love this girl, my wife loves this girl, the entire world loves this girl,” he said.
In fact, Jackie and Jennifer have become best of buds. While talking to Howard Stern, Adam revealed how his wife just loves anything Jennifer says.
While talking to Hollywood Reporter, Adam revealed how his wife and Jennifer tag-team to help him lead a healthy lifestyle.
“She’s certainly not afraid to have me show up on a set, and in my trailer is a whole bunch of whatever shake I should be drinking and it’s usually green,” Sandler told to the press.
