When you think about Adam Sandler's 1999 film Big Daddy, romance probably isn't the first thing that comes to mind. However, it does hold a very special significance for the actor. Not only was it one of his biggest comedic roles to date, but it's also where he met his wife, Jackie. At the time, Jackie was an aspiring actress getting her big break in Hollywood. In the film, she plays a waitress who takes Adam's order at a sports bar, but clearly a real-life spark happened off screen.

The pair started dating shortly after the film was released, and they've been inseparable ever since. The two eventually tied the knot in 2003, and have since welcomed two daughters, Sunny, 11, and Sadie, 14. While their relationship started on screen, they have continued to work together on a handful of projects like Murder Mystery, Just Go With It, Grown Ups, and 50 First Dates.
