Let’s be real: When two people start dating, they definitely start rubbing off on each other in ways they never expected. This reality was definitely the case with J-Lo and A-Rod. At first, J-Lo used her fiancé’s strip club experiences to hone her talent for her new movie, Hustlers. Now, the former baseball player took a modeling cue from his soon-to-be-wife and modeled for Dick’s Sporting Goods’ first fashion show. But, his first order of business before he hit the runway was to consult with his harshest style critic.
“Before you walked in here, I had my 14-year-old daughter on FaceTime. She said, ‘Dad, untuck your shirt. Pull down your socks.’ Story of my life!” he told WWD in an interview. Because don’t we all chastise our fathers for looking like such dads? A-Rod definitely has the #DadStyle thing going for him, though, no matter what his young fashion police reports.

Still, the father of two is happy to be supporting Dick’s Sporting Goods since the CEO recently announced the company has destroyed $5 million worth of assault weapons. “Any time someone takes a position where they’re going to take social good over the bottom line, it is a good thing. I’m the father of two beautiful daughters and the stepfather of two beautiful twins,” he said in the interview. While making his stance on guns very clear, he subtly made his stance on J-Lo’s 11-year-old twins, Max and Emme, even clearer — he thinks of them as his own already.
This past summer, the duo shared many bonding moments with all four of their children (they even traveled to Israel together), suggesting that they quickly became a blended family. Not so far apart in age, the kids are definitely in for a full (and fun!) house. “Our kids have become best friends and that keeps us both grounded and appreciative. We couldn’t have asked for anything better than the four of them getting along as they do,” Rodriguez told People in 2018.
Even if J-Lo and A-Rod choose not to have any more kids together, we love their blended family just the way they are. Plus, A-Rod already has enough mini stylists to pick out his wardrobe.
