While everyone knows who Jason Bateman is, make them curious to know about Jason Bateman’s wife, actress Amanda Anka.

Amanda Anka has been married to Jason Bateman for two decades, but owing to the actor’s busy schedule, she also doubles as a full-time dad.

Yet, the duo has found a way to make their union work, and together they have raised two beautiful daughters. 

Amanda Anka Is A New York Native.

Amanda Anka was born in New York City on December 10, 1968, which means she’s a Sagitarrius.

Her parents are actor and musician Paul Anka and former model Anne de Zogheb, and she has four siblings: Alicia Anka, Athea Anka, Amelia Anka, and Alexandra Anka. She also has a half-brother named Ethan Anka. 

Amanda Anka’s Career

Born on December 10, 1968, Amanda was born to musician Paul Anka and former model Anne de Zogheb. It is, therefore, no surprise that she pursued a career in entertainment.

Like Bateman, Amanda is also an actor. She is best known for appearing on shows like “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Lost Highway,” and many more.

Amanda also once served as a voice-over actress on “The Greatest Event in Television History between 2012 and 2014.” Additionally, she once served as a producer on the “Morning Show,” with a credit of 10 episodes.

Jason Bateman And Amanda Anka Have Been Married For Almost Two Decades. 

Bateman and Amanda first met as 18-year-olds, but it was not until years later that they started dating. Finally, they got married on July 3, 2001.

Since getting married, Bateman and Amanda have enjoyed a blissful marriage, with the actor often gushing about his wife and their love. In a 2013 interview, Bateman credited his wife for making his role as a dad easier by doing most of the heavy lifting when he is not around.

The actor also opened up about what makes their marriage work so well, noting that they know how to balance things up between them.

“Our marriage has defied the odds and works really well. We are really aware of our boundaries. We know how to bug each other and not bug each other,” he said. 

“If you don’t get along, it’s garbage. With a girlfriend, you get into a fight, you drive away. With us, we learn to fight quickly or not at all. I wanted to marry a friend. Friends last longer,” he added.

Bateman further added that his and Amanda’s friendship played a vital role in their long-lasting marriage because, according to him, friends last longer in marriage.

How Amanda And Bateman Dealt With A Rough Patch?

But while Amanda and Bateman have seemingly hacked the secret to a happy marriage, these two have experienced their own share of struggles.

In 2009, Bateman recalled how he struggled with substance abuse, noting that it almost cost him his marriage to Amanda. But Bateman was eventually forced to take charge of his bad habits the hard way after Amanda gave him an ultimatum to quit partying.

Even more awakening for Bateman was when Amanda went on a vacation to Mexico without telling him. That’s when he knew things had to change.

The actor signed up for an AA meeting, and the rest, they say, is history. He has since maintained his sobriety, and even better, his and Amanda’s love has continued to wax stronger.
