Alex Rodriguez’s Daughters Think He’s a “Hero” for Dating Jennifer Lopez

It’s not Alex Rodriguez‘s baseball career or possible Hall of Fame induction that impresses his daughters. His two girls, Natasha and Ella, are most impressed with their dad’s girlfriend Jennifer Lopez.

“My daughters think of dad as a hero now for the first time. It’s amazing,” the former New York Yankees player said while appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “They think they went to Heaven, and now they’re hanging out with Jennifer backstage. They’re dancing. They’re singing with her.”

Rodriguez also said that his daily FaceTime calls with his daughters have changed in that they now call more often and ask for the “Jenny From the Block” singer.

“Listen, I’ll take anything I can get from my girls,” he told Jimmy Kimmel.

Unfortunately for Rodriguez, Lopez’ twins, Emme and Max, don’t seem impressed with his baseball achievements, either.

“I think they’re impressed on how big I am,” Rodriguez said. “I don’t think they’ve ever seen someone so tall.”

Like the kids, Kimmel was interested in the athlete’s relationship status.

“All of your accomplishments on the field pale in comparison to dating Jennifer Lopez,” the host said. “They should clear out a special wing of the Hall of Fame for that—for that alone.”

He also said the celebrities’ nicknames contributed to them being viewed as the perfect pair.

“Even just your nicknames A-Rod and J-Lo, it’s like you were meant to be together,” he said. “It’s like a vanity license plate come true. It really is an incredible thing.”
