Relationship with Daddy, Adam Sandler
There is no denying that Sandman is quite a family guy. Despite his busy schedules, he always separates his time for his family. This is probably why the Daddy Sandler and Mommy Sandler are together for almost a decade.
Apart from being at various movie premiers and Hollywood events, the Sandler family is quite often seen enjoying their “We” time outside the industry. Adam especially seems to have a close-knit bond with his two beautiful daughters. Like any dad, he drops his kids to school, helps them with their homework, and even taught them to ride their bikes. In any normal day, you can find the Sandler family in a beach surfing together or enjoying time at Malibu fair. Adam and his long sweats just love spending time with his family!
In 2014 interview with Huffington Post, Adam told how parenting has changed his lifestyle. He revealed how he doesn’t go out after 9:30 and if someone keeps him out until 10:30, he gets pissed. He even used to dress up into a costume and read bed-time stories to his kids.
Well, doesn’t he deserve the coolest dad trophy?
During a movie promotion of “The Week Of,” on Good Morning America, he shared a heart-melting story about how he feels about his daughters getting married. He told the hosts that in the movie he shares a close bond with his on-screen daughter Sarah played by Allison Strong. And, when it was time to say good-bye it was hard for him.
Yeah! it will be difficult for me. We were watching the movie premiere, and my character was having hard time saying good-bye because he is really close to his daughter. When the movie was ending, my wife leaned on to me and she goes,”you really have to let go one day,” said Adam.
Referred to as “My Sunny” by Adam, the father and daughter duo share beautiful chemistry in movies as well as in real lives. On May 12, 2020, Sunny was caught on camera when Adam was giving an interview to Jimmy Kimmel from home. She even helped the sweat-pant guy (Sandler), get ready for her interview.
“I had a hair coming out of my ear, apparently, and Sunny told me about it. And she said I looked goofy so I went and shaved it” Adam told Jimmy.
“I took the razor I usually shave with and I went like this, then I came downstairs and said, ‘How’s that Sunny?’ and she said, ‘You’re bleeding.'”
She then tries to explain the situation in the most adorable way possible saying,’it’s bloody.’ The aww moment was when she when she kissed her father goodbye on the cheeks.

Adam Sandler and Jackie Sandler tied the knot on 22nd June 2003 at Dick Clark’s Oceanfront State. the two dated for four years before calling each other a husband and a wife. Both of them are well-known faces of the Hollywood entertainment world.
Adam Sandler is one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood. He started his career at the age of 17 as a stand-up comedian. He then debuted on the screens with The Cosby show in 1987. Afterward, he became regular on the MTV show “Remote Control”. He has also appeared in the show Saturday Night Live (1990-1995). However, he was fired from the show following some issues.

The first movie produced under the banner is “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo”. Recently, it has produced the Netflix movie “Murder Mystery.”
Sunny’s mother Jackie Sandler kick-started her career as a model. But the modeling career didn’t turn out to be fruitful. So, later on, she switched her career to acting.
