As a young, up-and-coming actor Adam Sandler had an idea of what his life might one day be like. “I wanted to go to Hollywood, become a huge star, live in a mansion with nothing but chicks,” he revealed Monday on The Late Show with David Letterman, “and it all came true.” Those “chicks,” of course, might not be the kind that he initially envisioned! Dad to Sadie Madison, 2 ½, and new baby Sunny Madeline, 6 weeks, with wife Jackie, Adam noted that even the family dog is a girl. “I have it all happening,” he said. As for his eldest daughter, life as a big sister has been “shocking.”
Adam, 42, admitted that while he and Jackie feel that Sunny is “a cute name,” his own mom is not as enthusiastic. “‘That’s a nickname,’ she kept saying,” Adam revealed. “‘You’ve got to give your child a real, proper name…if you want to call her Sunny, that’s fine, but a real name!'” In an effort to “take care of Mom-Mom” Adam joked that the couple “put down Sunday Night Football” on Sunny’s birth certificate. Next up for Adam is the more family-friendly film Bedtime Stories, and his decision to take the role is directly tied to his most important role of all — dad!
Bedtime Stories opens December 25th.
