Alex Rodriguez knows a thing or two about dating a major star, but that doesn’t mean he has advice on the matter.
The former New York Yankees athlete sat down with People this week, when he was asked if he has anything to share with Travis Kelce amid his budding romance with Taylor Swift — as A-Rod was previously engaged to a fellow superstar, Jennifer Lopez. “I certainly can’t give anyone advice about that,” Rodriguez joked of dating in the limelight.
“For me, of all the things that I’ve been able to experience in my life, there’s nothing [else] besides the birth of both of my girls,” A-Rod told People of his current priorities.
Rodriguez and Lopez first began dating in 2017 and revealed their engagement in 2019. They spent the first part of the pandemic at home with their blended family, made up of the “On the Floor” singer’s twins Maximilian “Max” David and Emme Maribel — whom she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony — and Rodriguez’s daughters Ella and Natasha with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis. In 2021, the couple announced that they’d broken off their engagement, issuing a joint statement to Today, noting that they “realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so.”
The Marry Me star has since rekindled an old romance and tied the knot with Ben Affleck, while Rodriguez is currently dating Canadian fitness instructor Jaclyn Cordeiro.
