Alex Rodriguez won’t stop singing the praises of his pop star girlfriend.
The former Yankees slugger raved about how Jennifer Lopez has had an extremely positive impact on his daughters Natasha, 12, and Ella, 9, who each dream of a career within the entertainment industry.
“Their role model is Jen and how diverse she is in terms of the arts and her career,” Rodriguez told Us Weekly at a Kia runway show at New York Fashion Week.
“Both Natasha and Ella love to sing, they love the arts and all the production around it,” he explained. “So for them it’s a huge thrill to be around one of the world’s greatest talents.”

Lopez was similarly praiseworthy of the longtime Yankees third baseman in a recent interview with HOLA! USA magazine, stating that this relationship is unlike any other she’s ever been in.
“I’m in a good relationship,” Lopez told the magazine. “I feel like I can say that for the first time— I don’t know — maybe ever. And not that I didn’t have great relationships, full of love and adventure, but this is the first relationship I’ve been where I feel like we really make each other better. We complement each other, and there’s really pure, true love.”
A-Rod and J. Lo began dating earlier this year, with news of their romance emerging in early March. They’ve gushed about each other in interviews ever since, and are frequently spotted together at events throughout the country.
Rodriguez has also shared videos of him and Lopez hanging out with his daughters, including one recently that showed Lopez giving singing instructions to Ella.
Jennifer Lopez’s hottest moments
“For them to be around their role model is so cool,” he told Us Weekly.
The ex-Yankee has continued to remain in the spotlight since he ended his 22-season MLB career last year, partially due to his romance with Lopez. He’s also one of the main analysts on Fox’s MLB coverage.
Lopez has been married three times, to Ojani Noa, Cris Judd and Marc Anthony. Rodriguez was married to the mother of his daughters, Cynthia, from 2002 to 2008.
