Jerry Seinfeld's 3 kids joined him at the premiere of his new movie. Here's what you need to know about them.
  • Jerry Seinfeld and his wife Jessica Seinfeld have three children together.
  • They have a daughter named Sascha and sons named Julian and Shepherd.

Jerry Seinfeld is a legendary stand-up comedian, writer, and co-creator of the hit series "Seinfeld," but to his three kids, he's still just "dad."

"They're tougher. It's a tough audience," Seinfeld said during a recent interview for "The New Yorker Radio Hour."

"If you try and be funny and they don't think it's funny, they just look at you and go, 'Is this one of your new bits, Dad?'" he added.

The comedian and his wife, Jessica Seinfeld, have spoken about their children many times over the years. Most recently, the whole family attended the Los Angeles premiere of "Unfrosted," Seinfeld's feature film directorial debut.

Here's everything you need to know about the couple's three kids.

Sascha Betty Seinfeld, 23, is the eldest child

Sascha, the couple's first child, was born on November 7, 2000, at a hospital in New York. In an Instagram post celebrating Sascha's 21st birthday, Jessica said that she's "so proud" to be her mom.

"She works hard, she plays hard, and in between, makes life better for everyone in her orbit," Jessica wrote.

Sascha graduated from Duke University in May 2023 and is credited as a writer on two of Amy Schumer's TV shows: "Inside Amy Schumer" and "Life & Beth."

In a 2015 interview with CBS, Jerry said that his daughter inherited his gift for comedy.

"My daughter could do it," he said when asked if his kids want to follow his career path. "She could. I don't think she will. But she's got it somehow."

Julian Kal Seinfeld, 21, is the middle sibling

Julian was born on March 1, 2003, and graduated from the Ethical Culture Fieldston School in 2021.

According to his LinkedIn profile, he's pursuing a bachelor's degree in sociology from Duke University and is an intern at 35V, a company that invests in startups and was co-founded by NBA star Kevin Durant.

Jessica praised her son in an Instagram post shared on his birthday in 2023.

"Your work ethic enables you to balance a heavy college course load with a job you love," she wrote. "Your sharply tuned BS detector suffers not one fool. The moral high bar you set for those around you keeps us all in line. You chose your friends wisely, and treat them all like family. You are such a phenomenal and gorgeous human being. Your goodness is greatness, especially in this world today."

Shepherd Kellen Seinfeld, 18, is the couple's youngest child

Shepherd was born on August 22, 2005. Little is known about him and he rarely appears on his mom's Instagram. However, she did share a photo of him celebrating Hanukkah in December.

Jerry and Jessica have spoken about their parenting approach over the years, with the comedian telling Us Weekly in 2019 that their goal is "to build decent human beings."

In other interviews, the comedian also said that he avoids three "poison Ps" when parenting — pleasure, problem-solving, and praise.

During a recent appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," Jerry said that he values "garbage time" with his kids over "quality time."

"Bowl of cereal at 11:00 at night? That's garbage time. That's the best," he said.
