Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez are still going strong — and they’re looking more and more like a blended family every day. On Monday, Rodriguez posted a shot of himself on Instagram, posing with his older daughter, Natasha, 13, and a girl who is either his younger daughter, Ella, or J.Lo’s daughter, Emme, 10 (she’s facing away from the camera, so it’s tough to tell). Check out those sweet personalized jerseys.
The girls are wearing Yankees jerseys emblazoned with A-Rod’s number, 13. But the younger girl’s jersey also says “J-Lo.”
Rodriguez and Lopez have been dating — and sparking marriage rumors — for more than a year, and their kids (two girls for Rodriguez, a boy and girl for Lopez) seem to adore spending time together as well. Rodriguez told Entertainment Tonight that Lopez is a true role model to his two girls. “She’s the hardest working lady and, you know, I grew up with a single mother,” he said. “I have two daughters. I am a big, big promoter of women [sic] equality.”
Rodriguez also posted this gem on Instagram, captioning it simply, “My girls”:
Lopez also posted a sweet candid of the couple snuggling with their kids in June:
According to Lopez, she’s not ruling out marriage, but she’s happy with the way things are right now between her and Rodriguez.
“I do believe in marriage,” she told Harper’s Bazaar in March. “And I would love to grow old with somebody in a committed relationship. But I’m not forcing anything right now.”
On the subject of her beau, she added: “It’s good, it’s healthy; we communicate well. We understand each other’s lives in a way that most other people couldn’t.” This Vanity Fair video of the two answering rapid-fire questions together on the magazine’s Facebook page is pretty much the sweetest thing.
We’re totally ‘shipping these two. They seem to be a match made in heaven. And if they ever do marry, hey, that will be America’s equivalent of a royal wedding, right?
