Jerry Seinfeld and Jessica Seinfeld have three children: a girl and two sons. The actor and his wife are incredibly close to their children and frequently post about them on social media. On numerous occasions, Seinfeld has discussed parenthood and his bond with his children.
In 2019, Seinfeld stated that he did not want to be one of those judgmental fathers. He also stated that he did not threaten his daughter’s boyfriend for the same reason.
“I was resolved not to be those fathers,” he added. “When I was a youngster dating, you’d go to a girl’s house and the father would be so harsh, and I didn’t want to be that person,”
Seinfeld went on to say that while he felt “possessive and protective,” he refused to be that kind of father.
Sascha Seinfeld, Jerry Seinfeld’s daughter
While Seinfeld has remained in the public glare since starring in the popular series Seinfeld, he has kept his family private.
However, the comedian has shared some information about his family. For example, in an interview with US Weekly in October 2018, Seinfeld disclosed that his daughter was seeing a man named Jack.
He explained that he and Jessica didn’t try to “over-parent” and were relaxed about their children dating.
“I think we’re pretty chill. They must sort things out for themselves.”
Later, Seinfeld and his wife verified that Sascha was going to prom with Jack. Jessica also shared a photo of her daughter and boyfriend dressing up for prom in June 2019. She captioned the photo, which was accompanied by a heart and an arrow emoji.
“Prom night for Couple of the Year, Sascha and Jack,”
Seinfeld and Jessica have also observed significant anniversaries in their daughter’s existence. Jessica used a family photo with their dogs to write about her Sascha leaving for college. Similarly, the actor and his partner threw a 1920s-themed celebration for Sascha’s 21st birthday.
“We have a 21-year-old son!” Jessica posted a message on her Instagram Stories while uploading photos from the event.
Jerry Seinfeld On Fatherhood
Seinfeld has spoken publicly about his thoughts on fatherhood and parenting over the years. When speaking with Mr. Potter, he revealed that he offered his children more independence than most other parents.
“I’m not really interested in their school activities.” “I’m not involved in their social activities,” he explained. “I’m just always around them, and I’m extremely excellent at bringing them out, you know?”
Seinfeld went on to say that he thought it was good that children had their own lives that their parents were unaware of. He also mentioned that allowing children to struggle was a good thing, referring to struggle as a gift.
Despite his laid-back approach to parenting, Seinfeld has admitted that he was irritated with his daughter when he discovered her on the phone watching the Kardashians.
Seinfeld stated that he was outraged by reality television and that he did not approve of his daughter watching the Kardashians because they were “not doing anything fascinating.”
