In Bruce Springsteen‘s family, everyone has a heart of gold! The iconic singer’s three kids, Evan, Jessica and Sam, are all grown up now, but he and wife Patti Scialfa are so proud to have raised their children to be quite the exceptional bunch.
The “Dancing in the Dark” artist and his longtime love started their family when they welcomed their eldest son, Evan, in 1990. Bruce and Patti married in 1991, and later that year, their second child, Jessica, made her arrival. The pair then welcomed their youngest son, Sam, in 1994.
The beloved E Street Band frontman has dedicated his life to his music career over the years, but nothing makes Bruce happier than being around his kids. The doting dad especially loves when Evan, Jessica and Sam come to visit.
“When we’re all together at [our home in] Colts Neck, New Jersey, Bruce and I still get up at seven every morning to make breakfast for the kids: oatmeal, pancakes, bacon, scrambled eggs — the whole deal,” Patti once revealed to Express. “I know it sounds corny, but we like to have that time together in the morning as a family before everyone goes their separate ways.”
“We’ve always done it that way,” the “Spanish Dancer” singer added, while Bruce noted having his kids away from home is both rewarding and bittersweet. “If I can wish for anything for my children, it’s that they can pursue their dreams and know that if things don’t work out, it’s OK,” he told the outlet. “Patti and I will always be there for them.”

Aside from constantly supporting his children’s endeavors, Bruce once revealed the unique reason he and Patti settled down in New Jersey. Because the “Tougher Than the Rest” singer was born and raised in the Garden State, he yearned to raise his kiddos in a more private area near the Jersey Shore, as opposed to celebrity hotspots like New York City or Los Angeles.
“We had an 80-member Italian-Irish family, and that was the way that I grew up, so I wanted my kids to have that sense of a bigger world than the entertainment world,” the Grammy winner shared with Jimmy Kimmel in October 2019. “I wanted them to see people that did a lot of other things, be around people who would shape them and they would have a lot of options.”
It looks like the famous couple succeeded!
