Later, she started with a new name, Good+ Foundation, which focuses on helping families in need. 

Is he dating anyone?

He is currently enjoying his time with his family and not dating anyone. 

Jerry finds New York City irritating?

Jerry was captured on Conan’s show, where at first only he stated saying what in the world was happening that he was on the Conan O’Brien show. 

Jerry feels like it’s a crack in the comedy space-time continuum. He giggled and said that he used to own that network. 

When asked if New York City, Manhattan is good for comedians? Instantly, Jerry replies, saying Irritation is good for comedy. And everything in New York is irritating. 

Also, Jerry says that he used to do this thing, and he used to love the thing about when you are in New York and you are sitting in the back of a cab and looking through the glass, it seems like it is happening on TV. 

He also accepted that comedians are all cranky and a little bit irritable. Jerry added, if you name anybody now, he can’t stand it. 

He says that he doesn’t like things. Not only this, Jerry says that everything irritates him. Further, on the show, the host mentioned the “Seinfeld The Complete Series” boxed set. 

Jerry claimed it was the nine years of his life on that box. No doubt, it was a phenomenally successful show. 

Jerry mentioned for three and a half years, Seinfeld struggled and was on the borderline. He continued saying that people at NBC were not excited about the show when they did the pilot. 

There was only a guy at NBC who believed and liked the idea, and he was Rick Ludwin, Jerry added. To know more, visit the link below.

Is his mom involved in a plagiarism lawsuit?

Jessica, with the entire Seinfeld family, indeed faced a stressful ordeal after Jessica got sued by a fellow cookbook writer named Missy Chase Lapine back in the year 2008

It was pointed out that Jessica had plagiarized Ms. Lapine’s book titled “The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids' Meals."

Later, Missy also put allegations against Jessica of copying her cover art too. 

However, the situation got even worse when Jessica was there on David Letterman’s show and claimed Missy was insinuated and hysterical. 

And also tells that Missy must be planning on becoming an assassin. Nevertheless, Jessica won the lawsuit in the end. 

Are Shepherd and his siblings impressed with their dad's iconic status?

During an interview with Access, Jerry revealed his kids aren't too impressed by his status. 

When asked if his kids are interested in the show, Jerry said they don't seem to be and that it sounds weird because Jerry would be interested in it if his dad had a show. 

Besides that, he also said that maybe his kids watch it secretly, and they don't tell him, but they never ask him anything about it. 

In another interview, Seinfeld said his kids almost don't laugh at his jokes which makes it even funnier for the audience.

Jerry on fatherhood

While talking about fatherhood back in 2015 while hosting Baby Buggy, a nonprofit founded by his wife Jessica, Seinfeld said that for a father in a challenging economic environment, it's harder to figure out what they are supposed to do.

According to him, he realized all dads, whether rich or poor, need a support system after the birth of his three kids, Sascha, Julian, and Shepherd.

He said he wasn't surprised that he loved fatherhood as much as he did but was surprised by what he needed to learn that he didn't know.

He added that being a husband and a father, you don't get any training, and people need training. 

When asked about Jerry Seinfeld as a dad, Jessica Seinfeld said he is an incredible father, but at the same time, she revealed that he wasn't a natural when their kids were born. 

He wasn't immediately pushing the strollers and carrying babies, which he still makes fun of, saying it took him a good ten years to warm up. 

Since Seinfeld had a busy schedule and, as a TV icon, had to travel a lot, mostly over the weekends, it was Jessica who took responsibility for a lot of early caretaking, sports, and activities. 

She now says Jerry's strength is currently with their three teenagers and is patient with them. 

She continued that where she is weaker, her husband is stronger, and in that way, they complete each other and wouldn't change anything.
