Sinbad’s Family Says He’s Recovering & ‘Getting Better Every Single Day’ Following Stroke

Comedian Sinbad, real name (David Adkins) is recovering and doing well according to his family after they revealed in early November he had suffered from a stroke.  The 64-year-old’s children posted a video update to his Instagram account on Wednesday (Dec. 9th).

His daughter Paige and son Royce appeared on their dad’s Instagram account with a message to his family and friends saying in part,

“On behalf of our dad, Sinbad, our mom, Meredith, our sister, Gem, and the entire Adkins family, we wanted to take a moment to give everyone an update regarding our dad’s health. We are happy to report that he continues to recover and is getting better every single day.”

They also thanked everyone for the prayers and well wishes, the doctors and nurses for their attention and medical care, and ended the video with a message from Sinbad himself saying,

“I have seen first hand how hard our medical workers are working during COVID and cannot stress enough how much we must appreciate them. We can show this appreciation by simply wearing a mask.

Thank God for everything He’s given you, even if it’s not everything you asked for. Thank God for family and hug the ones you love while you’re still with them. We need each other to get through this journey.

I can’t wait to see you all again soon.

As always, stay funky, stay prayed up!”

Sinbad rose to fame in the 1990s from being featured in his own HBO specials, appearing on various television series, and starring in the films Necessary Roughness, Houseguest, and Good Burger. One of his more recent television appearances included a role on the Fox series Rel.

We’re glad Sinbad is recovering well!
