Francesca Nora Bateman Is Understanding Of Her Father’s Busy Schedule
Needless to say, but Francesca has a great bonding with her family members and vice versa. In fact, all the members, her parents, and sisters altogether share a great relationship.
Believe it or not, but they are always praises for each other. Mother Anka takes the entire responsibility of raising their kids since Jason is out of the town most of the time, shooting for his movies.
And both Francesca and her younger sister Maple are pretty understanding of the fact despite being so young. Talking at the 2019 SAG Awards, Jason opened up about how his family understands him and keeps him grounded. He said,
They’re not impressed, they’re used to me working weird hours or not being in town a lot. My wife [Amanda Anka] keeps me really grounded by doing nothing other than just being her.
James Dedicated His SAG Award To Francesca
James is one of those actors, who has enough love for his children. Well, the actor even dedicated his 2019 SAG awards to his wife and both the kids.
Jason praised his wife on how she manages to handle their kids despite having a full-time career herself. Let’s hear in his words,
My wife keeps me really grounded by doing nothing other than just being her. She’s got a full-time career herself, and she’s able to be an incredible mom, and she’s also almost a full-time dad too because I’m out of town so much. I’m floored by that.
He also thanked both his kids and said how the awards would have meant nothing without his kids and wife during his acceptance speech.
I would like to say specifically though to my wife, my two daughters — Amanda, Franny and Maple — without you, none of it would be enjoyable and it probably wouldn’t be possible, I love you more than I even tell you I do, and I’ll be home for kisses so don’t go to bed. Amanda, pop a mint, I’m going to come give you yours in about 5 minutes.
Well, this definitely reflects their love for one another.
