Iris Apatow, as the name suggests, is the daughter of comedy extraordinaire Judd Apatow and famed actress Leslie Mann. Judd Apatow met Leslie Mann for the first time on the set of The Cable Guy in 1996 and a year later they were married and parents of their first daughter Maude Apatow.
Throughout his career, Judd mentioned his family, wife and daughters and they were also the butt of some of his jokes but the thing is he loves his family and they’ve all been together for the better part of two decades where Judd and Leslie flourished in their careers and they raised two talented and beautiful daughters.
Iris was born on 12 October 2002, almost five years after the first of their first daughter and she is still in high school in her senior year and then off to college. She was raised by her parents in Los Banos, California where her big sister was also born and here are five facts you know about the second daughter of Judd Apatow, Iris Apatow.
