Jason Bateman Has a New Baby Girl!


Jason Bateman and wife Amanda Anka welcomed a daughter on Friday in Los Angeles, a rep confirmed to PEOPLE.

It’s the second girl for the pair, both 43, who were married in 2001. The baby joins big sister Francesca Nora, 5.

The newest Bateman’s name:  Maple Sylvie.

Could the moniker be a nod to mom’s heritage? Amanda Anka’s dad is Canadian singer Paul Anka and we all know how much Canadians love their maple leaf.

What do you think? Is the baby’s name adorable or awkward?
