She’s getting so big!

Jason Bateman gives daughter Francesca Nora a lift as they attend the 5th annual Kidstock Music and Arts Festival sponsored by Hudson Jeans on Sunday in California.

Frannie, 4½, is the only child for the Horrible Bosses star and wife Amanda Anka.

What’s the actor’s top tip for parenting? “Patience,” Bateman, 42, tells PEOPLE with a laugh.

I’ve always thought this little girl was beautiful! She has gotten so big, I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve seen her.

Jas on

Such a pretty little girl! Looks just like her aunt Justine.

That is one gorgeous little girl! I have always loved her and her middle name is the name of my beloved grandmother. 🙂

Kate on

I thought the same think. She is like a mini-Justine…

She is such a pretty little girl!

Super sweet photo. Francesca is beautiful.

*Just a side note that I noticed first thing. This image is photoshopped at the bottom of Francesca’s shirt, her pants, and Jason’s hand. It looks like they are from another photo. I just tend to find those little things interesting.

I think she looks so much like him!

Jen DC on

WHOA! Suddenly she’s not a baby any more… So cute! Look at all her hair! And those beautiful eyes.

Lucky girl. Daddy is

Ashley on

Awwwww love Francesca, what a beauty!!!! And Jason is no slouch either, ha ha. One of the cutest celebrity kids out there 🙂

Solene on

I think she looks exactly like Jason too. If you’ve seen him in Little House on the prairie, she’s his spitting image.

saydee on

@Colleen – I totally agree! It seems like quite a while since we’ve seen Francesca.
Is it just me or does Jason Bateman get better looking the older he gets? 😉

Serena on

yet another gorgeous child! Today must be the day for beautiful kids! Between Jade, little Hank and now Frannie! Gorgeous children!

Sunny on

@ELO-What are you talking about??? There is no photo shop in this picture,why would they have super imposed his hand from another photo? That doesn’t make any sense!
Anyway… I agree, Frannie looks identical to her Dad and Aunt Justine!

Shannon on

Two cuties! lol

Liz on

She’s just beautiful, all Bateman! And Jason is a hottie dad!

AllisonJ on

Awww….Frannie is a little beauty! And Jason isn’t bad-looking, either! LOL

Just saw a trailer at the movies last weekend where a new movie is coming out with Jason Bateman and Ryan Renyolds. It looks really cute. Jason plays a married dad, and Ryan is the “cad.” They wish to switch lives, and they do. Looks funny, plus two hot guys in a movie – can’t go wrong with that!

coco on

Wow she has always looked just like her dad. Just beautiful! Her hair is so pretty and long.

@Sunny: if you look closely at Jason’s hands and Francesca’s pants, their outlines are totally perfect. It looks like his hand is just sitting on top of her shirt. There are also no wrinkles or indents in the fabric on the back of Francesca’s pants. If this was not an altered photograph there would be gathering. Its not like its that ridiculous of a thing. This hand could be from the very next image on the disk. Maybe the previous image was too hot and couldn’t be used. This happens all the time in photography.

Toya L. on

She is a doll.

Piper on

She is such a cutie!

JustMe on

Such a pretty child! 🙂

Isabel on

ELO; you’re totally wrong! Anyone can see that his hand is just where there is a slit in her tunic – hence nu bunching or gathering, so there’s NO photoshop what so ever!!

Aside from that ridiculous accusation, both father and daughter look great! :o)

Jillian on

Elo, you can clearly see that this is the pictuure and her shirt has a slit at the bottom which his hand is resting on. I can’t even begin to see what you are seeing……but you are very wrong.

zappo on

One of the most beautiful children I have ever seen. Her pappa doesn’t look so shabby, either! He’s aging so well. I have been a fan of Jason since the mid 80’s-handsome/pretty runs in that family!

Sophia on

Francesca is sooo beautiful! Looks like she’s losing her gorgeous curls a bit but her long wavy hair is just as lovely, what a sweet little girl 🙂
