Looks like Dakota Fanning didn't just get her super star looks from her momma but also her papa! The internet, specifically several social media sites such as Twitter, went ablaze as photos of the actress and her good-looking father, Steven Fanning, began to circulate around the internet.

According to a report by US Magazine, the father and daughter pair were enjoying a good old New York Knicks basketball game at the NYC Madison Square Garden last November 30, though the Knicks lost to
Miami Heat with a 86-79 score, when they were snapped. Steven Fanning, or Steve for short, wore a long-sleeved navy blue sweater, jeans and the blue Knicks hat while his daughter was all dolled up with a white blouse accented with a black bow on her neckline and worn over edgy ripped jeans. Both of them looked like they were having fun as the pictures showed the two laughing and in all smiles as they sat beside The Wire's Michael B. Jordan.

After a few digging it would seem that Steve isn't that much of a foreigner to the spotlight as he formerly played infield positions in minor league baseball between late 1980's and early 1990's for various AAA, AA and A teams. He has also starred in one episode of Judging Amy in 1999. Currently, he works as an electronic salesman in California. Looks like good looks do run in the family.

The Inquisitor reports that Dakota and her younger sister (and also an actress) Elle are in a tight relationship with their parents often being seen hitting the gym with their good looking dad or talking about their mother. In fact, in a previous interview back in 2012, US Magazine shares that Dakota and her mother are very tight ever since she had begun working.

Speaking of Dakota, the highly acclaimed actress caught the frenzy of the media and her fans as she was revealed to be in a relationship with model Jamie Strachan who is thirteen years senior to her.
