In fact, the duo met for the first time while both of them were at Crossroads, a private high school in Santa Monica. But, they only started dating in April 2005 after they met again at one of their colleagues’ birthday parties.

In early 2006, Jack and Tanya got engaged and married in March of the year, in a low-key wedding ceremony in Big Sur, California.

He Has a Younger Brother

Samuel spent most of his early life with his younger brother named Thomas David Black. Born on 23rd May 2008, Thomas was named after his father. He was weighed in at 6 lbs at the time of his birth.

Which School does Samuel Black go to?

Jack Black’s oldest son Samuel attended a nearby Hebrew school, an educational institute where the education mostly focused on Jewish history. It was his father who allowed his kids to study at the school. Back in 2012, the School of Rock star said in an interview with Team Cocco that he was on, “so much stress about where they’re gonna go to school.”

And eventually, Jack who identifies as nominally Jew decided to take his kids to that school.

His Ethnic Background

He is of German, Irish, Russian Jewish, and Scottish descent from his father’s side and is of Austrian Jewish, British Jewish, and Cuban descent from his mother’s side. As far as his nationality is concerned, Samuel is an American.

Father Jack’s Relaxed Approach to Parenting to His Sons

In late 2019, the veteran comedian and actor revealed something about his parenting style in a talk with Australian radio duo Fitzy and Wippa on Nova 96.9. He admitted that he allows his children to watch mature content in movies and TV shows only “if they’re really begging to see it.”

In the meantime, the actor has also fixed some conditions up to let his kids watch such on-screen projects. He said.

“As long as you have the remote in hand so if something gets out of control, you can pause and have a little talk. As long as you’re there and aware of what’s going on and you’re ready to talk to them or ready to leave if it’s too intense.”

Career: Samuel Jason Black is Interested in Making Short Movies

Although Samuel is still a high school boy, the star kid started making some big shots already. His dad Jack told People that both of his sons are pretty into making short films lately. He said of his super creative children,

“They both have made cool little short films on their iPhones. I [am] so proud and grateful for my family.”

Besides, back in 2016, Samuel Jason Black also provided the voice of the character Rabbit Villager in a computer-animated Kung Fu Panda 3.

Like many celebrity kids, Samuel has also kept most part of his life behind closed doors especially when it comes to his personal life. The 15-year-old boy has never come forward with his relationship to date. Furthermore, Samuel is neither active on any social media handles.
