Father Dedicated a SAG Award
In 2019, her father dedicated his SAG award to his wife and both his kids. Her dad praised his mother for how she handled his family despite having a full-time career herself.
My wife keeps me really grounded by doing nothing other than just being her. 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.
During the acceptance speech, he also thanked both his kids.
I would like to say specifically though to my wife, my two daughters — Amanda, Franny and Maple — without you, none of it would be enjoyable and it probably wouldn’t be possible, I love you more than I even tell you I do, and I’ll be home for kisses so don’t go to bed. Amanda, pop a mint, I’m going to come give you yours in about 5 minutes.
Father Holds $30 Million
Francesca’s father has accumulated an estimated net worth of $30 million from his longtime career in the entertainment industry.
