Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld Celebrate Their Youngest Son’s High School Graduation

Jerry and Shepherd Seinfeld

Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld’s youngest son has graduated! On Tuesday, June 11, Jessica, 52, shared some sweet Instagram photos of the family celebrating 18-year-old Shepherd’s high school graduation the previous day.

Among the carousel of photos, Jessica posted a rare snap of the family posing together. Proud dad Jerry, 70, stood in the middle while their son Julian, 21, and daughter Sascha, 23, posed to his right.

Jessica, dressed in a pretty pink dress, posed next to their youngest son Shepherd, who wore his maroon graduation robe, while Jerry looked dapper in a dark suit, white shirt, and polka dot tie.

A black and white photo showed Shepherd beaming while wearing his cap and gown, and other images focused on the graduation gift his parents got him: a flip phone.

“As I posted earlier in my stories, we gave him a flip phone for graduation in hopes he will turn in his smartphone. Many of you have asked if this is his first phone – I wish!” Jessica wrote in the caption.

“If I knew then what I know now, I would’ve waited until age 14 to give him a smartphone (he got handed down an old one at age 12, for the bus ride to school in the Bronx),” the author added.

Jessica also posted details of the minimal Light Phone. “Very curious about this – does anyone have one?” she asked her 609,000 followers.

While speaking to Parents magazine in 2020, Jessica called Jerry “an incredible father,” but admitted he had a bit of an uneasy start.

“The nicest way to say this is that he wasn’t a natural when our kids were born,” Jessica told the outlet, adding:

“He wasn’t immediately pushing strollers and carrying babies. He jokes that it took him a good 10 years to warm up.”

“He travels often and usually over weekends, so a lot of the early caretaking, sports, and activities were left to me,” the mother of three continued.

“Jerry’s strength is now, with our three teenagers,” Jessica shared at the time. “He’s patient with them. Where I am weaker, he is stronger, and we complement each other. I wouldn’t change anything.”

Jerry and Jessica tied the knot in 1999 after meeting at a New York City gym the year before.

While speaking in 2019, the Seinfeld star said the couple prioritizes spending quality time together.

“Every night for us is date night,” Jerry said at the time. “We just like to hang out. It’s just about being in the same room for us. We love being in the same room.”
