So who is Adam Sandler's wife? Here's everything you need to know about Jackie Sandler and her relationship with the actor.
She started her career as a model
Born on September 24, 1974, in Coral Springs, Florida, Jackie (née Jackie Titone) began modeling in high school. She made her acting debut in 1999, when she played Sally in Rob Schneider's film Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo.
Jackie met Adam on the set of Big Daddy
Adam reportedly met Jackie on the set of the 1999 hit Big Daddy, where she portrayed a waitress in the local sports bar.
In 2020, the actor shared a touching tribute to his wife on Instagram to celebrate the anniversary of the day they met. "22 years ago today we locked eyes and fell deep," Adam wrote alongside a throwback image of him and Jackie. "Looking forward to the next 22, young lady. Love you my forever girl."

On June 22, 2003, the couple tied the knot in an outdoor Jewish ceremony at Dick Clark's oceanfront Malibu estate. Following the wedding, PEOPLE reported there was one special guest in attendance alongside the couple's celebrity friends: Adam's dog, Meatball, who donned a black tuxedo jacket for the big event.
Jennifer Aniston, Rodney Dangerfield and Sharon Osbourne were also among the 400 guests that celebrated the couple's nuptials.
They have two daughters
The couple welcomed their first child, daughter Sadie, in May 2006. Adam announced the newborn's arrival on his website, writing, "Kid is healthy!! Wife is healthy!!"
Jackie and Adam later welcomed a second daughter, Sunny, in November 2008. The girls have appeared in a few of their father's films, including Hubie Halloween, Hotel Transylvania and Murder Mystery.
"They make it look like I'm forcing them to do it," Adam joked on a 2020 episode of The Drew Barrymore Show about his daughters' cameos. "Meanwhile, they were asking me the whole damn year, 'Can I be in your next movie, Daddy?' "
Jackie has also made cameos in her husband's movies, including 50 First Dates, Grown Ups, The Wrong Missy and Hubie Halloween.
In November 2022, Sandler received the Film Tribute Award at the Gotham Awards in New York City. The actor claimed that he was "too busy" to write a speech, so he let his teenage daughters craft one for him. The hilarious speech, which was more of a roast, ended with a shout-out to their mom.
"Thank you mommy for putting up with daddy and his crazy f---ing mood swings all these years," Sandler read to the audience. "Now that truly is a feat deserving of a lifetime achievement award."
Jackie encouraged Adam to take the role in 2019's Uncut Gems
Adam was honored with the best actor award for his role in Uncut Gems at the 2020 National Board of Review Gala. But he couldn't accept all the credit, as it was Jackie who encouraged him to take the role in the first place.

While speaking with Access Hollywood, Adam also revealed that Jackie isn't bothered by her husband's onscreen romance with Aniston — in fact, she encourages him to give it his all.
"Jennifer is one of my closest friends and Jackie's closest friends. So, she's like 'Would you give Jennifer some sort of good time with that kiss please?' " he said.
She and Adam enjoy spending time together
In a cover story for AARP The Magazine, Adam revealed his "secret" to a good marriage.
"Jackie and I like spending time with each other," he said. "We try to make each other laugh, try to listen, try to include each other, try to support each other. We try our best — that's all. And we don't ever think of not being together. We always talk about our future together."
She and Adam have walked many red carpets together
