Alex Rodriguez is in damage control after rumors swirled last week that his 2 daughters don’t like his girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez, and they are jealous of her twins.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday, the former baseball superstar claims his daughters, Natasha “Tashi” Alexander, 12, and Ella Alexander, 9, FaceTime him “several times a day” just to chat with Jennifer.

Host Jimmy teased Alex that all of the 42-year-old’s accomplishments on the field “pale in comparison to dating Jennifer Lopez” and quizzed him on who was most excited by his new relationship.

Revealing it was his daughters, who for the first time saw their father as a “hero”, Alex explained:

“Now they’re hanging out with Jennifer backstage, they’re dancing with her. We usually call at least once a day on FaceTime. Now they call me three, four, five times and it’s funny ‘cause when I pick up the phone, I’m like, ‘Hi Tashie, hi Ella,’ and I can see them and they’re like, ‘Hey daddy,’ and they’re looking around behind me. And I’m like, ‘Hi honey how was school?’ and they’re like, ‘Uh, daddy, yeah it was great, where’s Jennifer?’ And I say, ‘Oh, no no, she went to the set already honey, she’s working.’ ‘OK dad I’ll call you later, bye love you!’.”

Alex added that Jennifer’s nine-year-old twins Max and Emme aren’t as excited about him.
He did say the youngsters were impressed by a particular part of his appearance.

“I think they’re impressed by how big I am. I don’t think they’ve ever seen someone so tall,” said Alex, who is 6’3″ and weighs 223 lbs.

Although he is average height for an elite athlete, Alex towers over the twins’ absentee father, Latin singer Marc Anthony, who is only 5’8″.

Rumor has it that Jennifer’s son, Max, is emotionally dependent on Alex because his father abandoned him.

In past interviews, Anthony admitted he is not there for his 5 children — three by other women.

    not sure why he feels the need to do damage control, especially to the point of further exposing his children to the public… these two are not that interesting. i suspect that Lopez is the one orchestrating these photo ops so that he appears to be ‘always’ with her and her children. don’t these little girls have a mother? why would they be calling their dad just to chat with the next chick? he raises more questions that he answers. if he wanted to shutdown rumors, he should have emphasized how well all the kids get along with each other and kept it moving. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/89e8bff840f7b066dba9a0e9e744eb581aafdea92dc9efeb4f60cc49e5cd7ad9.gif

    Jlo again is only known for her bad relationships that take up too much space publicity wise

    It’s common to feel some kind of way when one of your parents starts seeing someone else With kids they might feel like they are hurting their fathers feelings. Young minds can adapt but I think it’s normal. In their world they want mommy and daddy to be together. They might think they did something wrong. But for me or when your older is when you really side eye by that age you know what grown folks do. It’s selfish not to want then to date or remarry but that when the roles reverse sort of. You don’t want anyone to break their heart or use them & cheat on them. That’s how most parents feel when their kids start dating. I’m sorry I just don’t want some other man/women sleeping and roaming around the house where my mom or dad was laughing in his recliner just chilling. … B! TCH BE GONE.. I would go into secret squirrel/dark wing duck mode I would research him/her tell them a few things even they don’t know. “You do know your BFF just had a baby with your ex… Oh! My bad you didnt know?? Well you do now

  • MythCalledLove

    I never even thought of that. It would be messed up if she tipped paparazzi off and he didn’t know. She making it appear like he is all mine.

  • MythCalledLove

    She would hv stayed in his. After that gun situation Jenny from the block decided to move to the hills Beverley hills that is.

  • Renee26

    Awww Marc is an absentee father??

  • Dahl

    Where is the interview where Marc admits this? I’d like to see it…

  • Renee26

    I was a baby when my parents divorced and have always known my dad to be with my stepmother. Growing up me and my stepmother bumped heads because I didn’t respect her authority (she was too close to me in age to tell me what to do)…well they got divorced a while back and although I’m a whole adult I refuse to acknowledge any of his new “girlfriends”. His new choice of women has gone down drastically too and that has a lot to do with my acceptance of them. They’re not good enough to be with my daddy (and he’s no saint)… Children can be a trip sometimes

  • Renee26

    Ok! She snatched that bandanna off quick and disassociated herself from all the thug behavior LMAO

    She was NOT about that life!

  • Dahl

    Unless the concern is protecting your inheritance, a child should not interfere with their parents’ relationships. They were adults before becoming parents, they have a right to date as they please. Lord knows, no one wants their parents butting into their love lives….

  • Karen Brady

    lmao that bandana.. and the white crop top and tight white jeans yhat went wit it

  • Renee26

    I’m not concerned with no inheritance and I don’t mettle in his affairs or expect to get anything when he dies (although he has things). I don’t even care if he catches heart ache or STD’s behind these new women….he’s a grown man and responsible for his own behavior; I wouldn’t dare interfere in his “love” life …. I just don’t want to meet them, talk to them, or sit with them at the dinner table and get all chummy. I have absolutely no desire to be around his new women. I do still have a relationship with my step mother though and even act like a mix of her and my mother personality wise.

  • Meme

  • leapyearpisces

    Why all these petri-dish twins look “off”? and I am not talking about looks as far as being ugly and what not, THAT’s NOT what I am saying, I don’t know, it’s just a “vacant” look maybe? I don’t know how to really describe it, but Mariah’s twins have that same “look”.

  • Malcom Flex

    F Jello and A Rod and their fake romance!

  • ???TheRider???

    I’m confused – are his daughters’ last name Alexander or is it both their middle names?

  • ???TheRider???

    Correct – she can’t let her pocketbook (as my grandmother would say) rest. It’s always full of dack!

    they are not pretty girls. what happened? just like Jessica Alba not pretty little girls even though they have beautiful parents. bet the third baby will be pretty

  • parisjok

    so very proud of you for saying that but you still made me laugh

  • parisjok

    your statement sounds so honest

  • Mojo2

    Omg, yes! Pod generation, will see them on ID (tv) in 15 years.

  • leapyearpisces

    LOLOLOLOL. Girl, GOD knows WE are all WORKS in PROGRESS. That’s why I stress the point that I am not talking about vanity (not calling folks kids ugly), what I was trying to say is it seems that none of these in vitro twins have the ability to “affect” with their face – they don’t really “emote”.
    Its like they do not express emotion even when they are “expressing” emotion because the eyes are vacant. It’s like their minds are “out to lunch”. Like I said, Mariah’s twins have that same look, but they have gotten and are getting better, but it’s still there.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    It’s this term my ignant brother use to call my deddy’s kids by his wife, who gave birth with a severe alcohol laced liver….I will never repeat it….but it was something like _______ _________ face…I told him on the spot that if he didn’t repent he was going to hell….after I died from LOL…

  • leapyearpisces

    I never thought about that, but yeah it is a POD generation so to speak, yeah. I remember being in middle school (like 6th grade)and the Biology teacher saying how in the future we would be able to go and pick our babies features etc. out, like we were shopping at the grocery store, and we all in the class were like yeah right, and dang on if WE AINT HERE….and Lord knows I am not anybody’s holy roller, I don’t know even half of what I should know about the bible, but I would be interested in asking a preacher or a priest as far if these children have souls. I am not saying they do or they don’t, but for instance, like Asa on Shah’s of Sunset; she said her and Jermaine Jr. froze seven embryos and they all were boys. So if a soul is created at the point of conception, what happens when you put that bih on ice for years? What happens to the soul then? Is the soul LITERALLY and FIGURATIVELY chilling????

  • leapyearpisces

    yep, you can go on to the corner….there is the usual “corner” survivor’s kit waiting for you, and I SHALL NOT be joining you. LOLOLOLOL

  • leapyearpisces

    You just brought up a very good point. Possibly it has NOTHING to do with in-vitro, maybe it has more to do with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (especially with Mariah’s two).

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    *still holding the door for you*
    ROFL!

  • Mojo2

    Omg! Never thought about that and your right! The implication are all over the board. Need to develope an ethics class on this. Lol.

  • leapyearpisces

    Yeah, imma need somebody who is pursuing to their PhD to do their dissertation on this.

  • Letitsnow

    ^^This^^

  • Letitsnow

    Agreed ^^

  • leapyearpisces

    Nope! A little birdie told me the corner does GNAT have all the amenities it used to, it’s only an air mattress and one SQUARE Lunchables meal a day , and Leap TAINT BOUT THAT LIFE. I , however, will have your “Welcome back Kotter” package waiting for you after you do your bid.:-). Like Faith sung, imma do your time with you.;-) (from afar of course, 🙂 LOLOLOLOLOLOL.
