But by all accounts, Sadie and Sunny seem to be a couple of normal Taylor Swift– and Olivia Rodrigo-loving teens (Adam was spotted Aug. 9 at the Eras Tour in L.A., so surely that was a family outing) who are cool to be around on set and are growing up way too fast for their father’s taste.
He said on Daddy Issues that, when they were little, he assured them he’d destroy any boy who looked at them funny. More recently, Jackie had told him he’d have to prepare to be friends with these would-be suitors one day, so he was trying to adjust his approach accordingly.
“I am changing a little bit,” he said. “When I talk about their futures…I talk about, ‘You know, you just want a nice guy who you can count on, that’s gonna look out for you, blah blah blah’—I’m getting into that world. I’m less being like [growly voice], ‘F–k everybody, you don’t need that s–t, you only need me.'”
Though the most important thing, of course, is that Sadie and Sunny know they’ve got him.
That being said, he won’t be around forever, Adam cracked, so “I want to make sure they’re with somebody decent.”
