Adam Sandler Is Uncomfortable with His Daughter's Newfound Interest in Boys: 'I Get Very Jumpy'

Adam Sandler‘s daughter Sadie Madison will be a teenager next month — which means it’s time to celebrate!

“The bat mitzvah is coming … she’s getting bat mitzvahed in, like, a month. So she’s been practicing,” the Murder Mystery star told Ellen DeGeneres during a Friday visit to her daytime talk show.

“Is that dating yet, 12 or 13?” DeGeneres asked her guest.

“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,” said Sandler, 52. “When they would mention the kid’s name, I’d be like, ‘I love that kid.’ “

“Now, I get very jumpy,” the actor admitted. “They’ve got little tiny mustaches and they’re all a little tall and their bodies aren’t making much sense.”

Dad Interrupts His Daughter’s Engagement by Holding Up Hilarious “Say No” Sign

“I see them make eye contact with my kid — it’s very weird to see your kid lock eyes with a boy while they’re talking. Like, ‘Whoa, you lock with Daddy’s eyes,’ ” he joked.

“That’s kinda creepy too,” DeGeneres, 61, ribbed Sandler, who let out a huge laugh alongside the audience.

“That’s a good one, Ellen, you’re right, that is gross,” he quipped. “Not lock, I just say ‘Engage with Daddy.’ “

Sandler (who is set to host on his alma mater Saturday Night Live this weekend, for the first time since he departed the show almost 25 years ago) got slimed during the Kids Choice Awards in March, as he accepted the award for favorite male voice from an animated movie for Hotel Transylvania 3.

“They asked if I wanted to get slimed and I said no, and then [daughter Sunny Madeline, 10] goes, ‘You said no?!’ ” he recounted. “So I changed my mind real quick just to make her happy.”

His girls were both in the crowd, so it was totally worth it to see their smiles — even though, as Sandler joked, he was “blind” from the green substance until “halfway through driving home.”
