Early life

Bateman was born in Rye, New York,[1] and was 4 years old when his family moved to Salt Lake City, Utah, and later to California.[5] His mother, Victoria Elizabeth, was a flight attendant for Pan Am who was originally from Shrewsbury, the United Kingdom (UK).[6] His father, Kent Bateman, is an American actor, writer, and director of film and television, and the founder of a repertory stage in Hollywood.[7][5][8] Bateman is the younger brother of Family Ties actress Justine Bateman. He also has three half-brothers.[5]

Bateman told Best Life magazine that he and Justine supported their parents with the paychecks they earned from their television shows; he also revealed that he was managed by his father until Bateman was 20 and dissolved the business relationship.[9]
