Adam Sandler’s kids, Sadie and Sunny, have often been seen on the red carpet with their famous father. Recently, it was for his movie Spaceman, in February 2024.

The sisters wore contrasting looks, with Sadie in a form-fitting leather mini-dress and tights, while Sunny rocked a floor-length leopard print sleeveless dress. They also posed alongside their mother who wore a black dress emblazoned with a butterfly bodice.

It’s not the first time we’ve seen the family pose on the red carpet, and sometimes it’s not even for Adam Sandler’s own projects. Both Sadie and Sunny are following in his acting footsteps, with a growing number of credits between them.

In fact, their first big project was a family affair.

Sandler’s film, You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah, stars his real-life kids Sadie and Sunny as his on-screen daughters, and they are just as hilarious as their dad.

The film follows a year seven student, Stacy (Sunny Sandler), as she plans her dream bat mitzvah, while a drama stirs between her and life-long best friend Lydia. Meanwhile, Stacy’s mum (Idina Menzel) and sister (real-life sister Sadie Sandler) encourage her to make peace with her friend.

The Sandler parents, Adam and Jackie, also have roles in the movie – Adam plays Stacy’s father, while Jackie Sandler plays Lydia’s mother, Gabi.

But this wasn’t the first project either Sadie or Sunny have worked on. Details on reveal Sadie Sandler got her first credit back in 2008, when she was just two years old. Sunny, followed in her big sister’s footsteps, with her first credit in 2010 when she was also around two years old.

Despite having impressive screen credits already, both Sadie and Sunny Sandler have grown up relatively out of the spotlight. So fans were shocked at how much they resembled Adam Sandler when they joined him at the premiere of Murder Mystery 2 in March 2023, which he starred in alongside Jennifer Aniston.

It was the first time his daughters had joined him on the red carpet for a while, with both teenagers more grown up and even more like their famous father than their last public appearances. 

Here, everything we know about Adam Sandler’s daughters, Sadie and Sunny.

Who Are Adam Sandler’s Kids? 

Sandler has two daughters with his wife, Jackie. 

Their eldest daughter, Sadie Madison Sandler was born in 2006.

When Sadie was a toddler, Sandler told Jay Leno on The Tonight Show that he had “dethroned” his wife from the position of his daughter’s favourite person.

“We’re very tight with this child – everything we do is about the kid, and the kid now all of the sudden worships me. It was my wife the whole time and then the last month or two, it’s all Sandler. It’s like anything I do, the kid wants to do,” he said. 

In 2008, the couple welcomed their second daughter Sunny Madeline Sander. 

According to Sandler, his wife announced the pregnancy in a very sweet way. 

“I came home at night and [Jackie] kept saying ‘Sadie wants to give you a present,’ and normally Sadie falls asleep around 8. It was like quarter past 9 and I just got back from working,” he said during an appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly. 

“And then Sadie hands me a little something, like a gift. And I was ‘Aww, that’s nice Sadie, thank you.’ And then Jackie kept saying ‘Open it up, open it up.’ And I open it up and it was one of those pregnancy [tests] and I was like ‘Woowww.'”

So far, Adam and Jackie Sandler have kept their daughter’s online presence to a minimum. Adam, however, isn’t afraid to share anecdotes about his life and kids. 

In 2019, during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Sandler spoke about watching eldest daughter Sadie grow up, telling DeGeneres that the teenager was starting to talk about boys. 

“You know, I drive around with [her and] her friends and I hear them talking about boys now … it’s amazing, the feelings I had about the same boys five years ago. When they would mention the kid’s name, I’d be like, ‘I love that kid.’ Now, I get very jumpy,” he joked.
