Yum! Francesca ‘Frannie’ Nora Bateman enjoyed a fruit snack — and kept a tight grip on dad’s hair! — while strolling in NYC on Monday.

Frannie, 2, is the first child for Jason Bateman and wife Amanda Anka.

Catch Jason at the movies starting today — State of Play is now in theaters.

It’s funny that this little girl has the same name as Francesa ‘Frankie’ Pen and Frannie’s mother has the same name as Frankie’s mother, Amanda Peet. She’s a sweetheart.

to babyboopie, Amanda Peet’s daughter is Frances Pen not Francesca Pen, but it is still cool! Frannie is such a cutie! Just like Frankie!

Everytime I see this little cutie, she reminds me of her Aunt Justine…then I think of Family Ties (I loved that show!!!!)…Boy, am I old. =)

It’s so weird to see him as an adult, after watching him on Little House on the Prairie as a child. Sometimes I have to stop myself from calling him James.
