Who are Adam Sandler’s 2 Kids? All About Sadie and Sunny!12th February, 2024
Adam Sandler, alongside his wife Jackie Sandler, embraced parenthood in 2006 with the birth of their first daughter, Sadie. He expressed his enthusiasm for fatherhood shortly after her arrival, stating, “It’s fun. It’s great. I love that kid… I was dying to do it.”
In late 2008, Sadie was joined by her little sister, Sunny, completing the Sandlers’ family. Despite their fame, the couple has chosen to keep a low profile regarding their home life.
Reflecting on fatherhood in a 2018 interview with HuffPost, Adam shared, “My kids give me the most joy, but there are life adjustments. I don’t go out to meet anyone after 9:30 at night. I eat dinner at 6 or 7. If someone makes me stay out until 10:30 at night, I’m angry the entire next day because I’m exhausted.”
Sadie and Sunny have made appearances in several of their father’s films over the years, notably in the 2020 Netflix movie “Hubie Halloween.” However, it wasn’t until 2023 that they secured leading roles.
In Netflix’s “You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah,” Sunny plays the seventh-grade student Stacy, who navigates planning her ideal bat mitzvah amidst a falling out with her best friend.
Meanwhile, her real-life sister Sadie portrays her sister in the film, with Idina Menzel playing their mother. Adam Sandler stars as Stacy’s father, and Jackie Sandler takes on the role of a character named Gabi.
As a prominent figure in Hollywood, Adam has access to various events. In October 2023, he accompanied his daughters to the Los Angeles premiere of Taylor Swift’s concert film. After the screening, Swift graciously took photos with Sadie and Sunny.
From their early years away from the limelight to their pivotal roles in Netflix productions, here’s an overview of Adam and Jackie Sandler’s two daughters, Sadie and Sunny.
Sadie Sandler, 17
Adam and Jackie joyfully welcomed their first daughter, Sadie Madison Sandler, into the world on May 6, 2006. Shortly after her birth, the comedian humorously remarked to reporters about his newborn daughter’s apparent lack of focusing skills. He joked, “Every time I try to bond with her and engage with her, I look, and she’s just staring at my forehead.”
When Sadie was 14 months old, Adam shared with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show that he had jokingly “dethroned” Jackie as their daughter’s favorite person. He humorously described their close bond, saying, “We revolve around this child – everything we do is for her, and suddenly she’s all about me. It used to be my wife, but now, it’s all about Sandler time. Whatever I do, she wants to do.”
From a young age, Sadie began accompanying her father to film sets, making her first on-screen appearance in his 2008 movie, You Don’t Mess with the Zohan. In the same year, she also had a minor role in Adam’s film Bedtime Stories, where he portrays an uncle whose imaginative bedtime stories cause excitement for his niece and nephew.
During promotions for the movie, Adam confessed that the storyline hit close to home, as his attempts at bedtime storytelling often had the opposite effect on Sadie.
“I’m not exactly a pro at bedtime stories,” he admitted. “The intention is to lull the child to sleep, but with my kid, it seems to have the opposite effect – she gets all wound up.”
During an appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly in 2008, Sadie’s father shared a memorable moment when she broke the news of her impending sibling. He recounted returning home late from work to find Sadie awake, an unusual occurrence since she typically slept by 8 PM. She presented him with a gift, insisting he open it, only for him to discover it was a pregnancy test, signaling their family’s expansion.
Reflecting on Sadie’s growth in 2019 during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Adam mentioned the challenges of seeing his daughter approach her teenage years, particularly when she talked about boys. He humorously contrasted his previous feelings towards those boys with his current protective instincts.
For Sadie’s bat mitzvah in the same year, Adam went all out, arranging for a special performance by Adam Levine, the frontman of Maroon 5. He explained on Jimmy Kimmel Live how he persuaded Levine via text to perform at the celebration, which also featured Maroon 5’s guitarist James Valentine. The event was a hit, with Sadie expressing her gratitude through numerous hugs.
In February 2024, Sadie accompanied her parents to an NBA game, where they enjoyed courtside seats to watch the Los Angeles Lakers play against the Denver Nuggets.
Sunny Sandler, 15
Adam and Jackie celebrated the arrival of their second daughter, Sunny Madeline Sandler, on November 2, 2008. Adam shared the news of Sunny’s birth on his website, describing her as “beautiful” and expressing gratitude for the family’s happiness and health.
Much like her older sister, Sunny has made appearances in several of her father’s films, including “Grown Ups,” “Blended,” and “Murder Mystery.” Despite accumulating numerous acting credits from Adam’s projects, it seems that both Sunny and Sadie are eager to carve their own paths in the entertainment industry.
During an appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show, Adam humorously recounted his daughters expressing a desire to be in movies, to which he responded by reminding them of their roles in his films. However, the girls aspire to pursue their own endeavors someday.
Apart from her acting ventures, Sunny has a passion for singing. In June 2019, she showcased her vocal talents during one of Adam’s comedy shows, performing a song from “The Greatest Showman” to the delight of the audience. This performance earned Sunny a resounding applause and a standing ovation.
Later that October, Sunny and Sadie joined Adam onstage for a charity performance, where they collaborated on a rendition of Taylor Swift’s “Lover,” described by Adam as “one of their favorite songs.”
“We’re about to perform a song! They’ve been really hyped and a bit nervous, but we’re ready to go,” Adam informed the crowd enthusiastically. “They had the chance to see Taylor Swift last night when we were at Saturday Night Live. That was a huge deal, you know? Taylor Swift — incredible!”
Following a standing ovation for the girls’ performance, Adam expressed gratitude to the audience for their warm reception. “Thank you all for being so kind to them,” he said, adding, “They were eager to be part of this. Girls, you nailed it! You sounded fantastic — confident and composed. I love you all, but now it’s time to step off the stage.”
For Sunny’s bat mitzvah in May 2022, Adam once again enlisted the help of his celebrity friends to ensure the celebration was extraordinary. The star-studded event saw appearances from his former co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Taylor Lautner, alongside performances by Charlie Puth and Halsey.
Reflecting on the party during an interview on The Tonight Show, Halsey remarked, “Honestly, it was the most extravagant bat mitzvah I’ve ever witnessed,” she shared with Jimmy Fallon. “Just as you’d expect from Adam Sandler. It was like… I mean, it was like being at Coachella.”
Sunny appeared delighted with the A-list attendees and the buzz surrounding the event. After a TikTok user posted a video from the bash featuring several celebrities posing with a large Smarties candy package, Sunny summed up the occasion in a single word: “Trending.”
Several months later, Sunny and her sister found themselves in the spotlight once again when their father was honored with the Film Tribute Award at the 2022 Gotham Awards. Rather than taking the conventional approach, he graciously allowed his daughters to craft his acceptance speech.
In jest, Adam quipped on stage, “They were like, ‘Can we write your speech so you’ve got something to say?’ I said, ‘Absolutely! It would be nice to see you doing something other than watching YouTube or going to freakin’ Lululemon every darn weekend.'”
Following his playful banter, Adam proceeded to deliver the speech penned by his daughters, filled with lighthearted jabs aimed lovingly at him. The proud father concluded his address with heartfelt gratitude, expressing appreciation to his wife and daughters for their unwavering support throughout his journey.
