Quality time with Dad! Jason Bateman made a rare appearance with his youngest daughter, Maple, as they watched the Lakers play over the weekend.
The father-daughter duo were spotted at the Crypto.com arena in Los Angeles on Friday, March 24, to see the Los Angeles Lakers take on the Oklahoma City Thunder. Bateman, 54, and his 11-year-old daughter sat courtside as they watched the NBA teams face off.
While the Ozark actor wore a t-shirt, jeans and hat, Maple donned a yellow hoodie showing her support for the home team by wearing their colors. She matched the bright ensemble with cream pants and blue sneakers. As the two watched the game, they could be seen chatting and laughing. While the game was a nail-biter, the Lakers ultimately took home the win as they defeated the Thunder with a score of 116 to 111.
Missing from the night, however, was Bateman’s wife, Amanda Anka, and his eldest daughter Francesca.
Bateman and the Bad Words actress, 54, tied the knot in July 2001 after four years of dating. The twosome — who originally met while attending a Kings hockey game in Los Angeles — became parents for the first time in 2006 when they welcomed their oldest daughter, Francesca in October of that year. The couple expanded their family for a second time when Anka gave birth to daughter Maple in 2012.
When the Arrested Development alum was up for a Golden Globe in 2021, both of his little girls were by his side as they participated in the awards show at home. While waiting to see if he took home the accolade for Best Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Marty Byrde on the Netflix crime series, Maple and Francesa hung out with their dad.
When Bateman won his SAG award in January 2019, he joked that his kids weren’t impressed with his accomplishments. The Horrible Bosses star revealed that his wife was the one who kept things running in their household.
“[My daughters are] used to me working weird hours or not being in town a lot. My wife keeps me really grounded by doing nothing other than just being her,” he recalled at the time. “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. That keeps me grounded.”
