Actor Adam Sandler, 39, gave an interview on his upcoming movie, talked about his late father and how his life changed when he realized he was going to be a father. Here are some captures:

"What are your thoughts about turning 40 this year?

I’m just relieved that at this age, I have a kid. I was working on having a kid for a while and that was a little depressing. When my father passed away, that’s when I said, “Oh, man, I’d better get a kid.” I can’t believe my father didn’t get to meet my own kid and what am I doing with my life? My father had four kids by the time he was 29.

About finding out Jackie was pregnant:

So when my wife got pregnant, I really started to relax. I found out she was pregnant while we were filming this movie. I was doing a scene where Kate [Kate Beckinsale, co-star of Click] and I were yelling at each other in a therapy office and she was saying you’re always on auto-pilot. During a break, my wife said, I think I’m pregnant. My whole life changed right there. I felt like I was doing something good instead of just thinking about me and my movies. It’s nice to not think about me for a minute. This morning, I was running a little late. I was running out the door. Then I saw that kid. It made me feel so much better about my day. So if I didn’t have that kid at 40, I’d probably be a little more jumpy."

Sandler has daughter Sadie Madison, 3 months with wife Jackie Titone, 32.
