Alex Rodriguez admits he made burner Instagram account to follow daughters

Paranoid pops! Alex Rodriguez owned up to making a burner Instagram account to follow his daughters.

“[They] don’t let me follow them on social media,” the former professional baseball player, 44, said on the Monday, August 19, episode of the “Chicks in the Office” podcast. “So oh yeah, I have a burner account.”

Natasha, 14, and Ella, 11, who the athlete shares with his ex-wife, Cynthia Scurtis, keep close tabs on their dad’s social media account as well. “They are, like, the COO and the CEO of my social media craziness or whatever I do,” the former New York Yankees player said. “They’re so good. Every time I post something [about them], usually 5 out of 10 [times], both of them will DM me and say ‘Dad are you serious?’ ‘Dad, you know I’m going into high school next year.’ ‘Dad this is how bullying starts’ and I’m like, ‘OK, I’ll erase it.’”

Rodriguez added, “I have contracts with both of them that if I post something now … they have to approve everything.”

Macha 13, I can’t believe it’s been two years. Only 730 days, which have flown by, but it feels like we have been together forever. We are meant to be, and how much you mean to me cannot be put into words. . From baseball games, to traveling across the world to shows in Vegas. We have done it all together and every moment with you is cherished. Where this road will take us next is unknown but there is no one else I would rather have by my side. The journey is just beginning and I am excited for what’s ahead. . Macha, your hard work is unmatched. Your relentless drive and determination push me to be a better man each and every day. . Like you there is none other. Words will never do justice to what the last two years have meant to me. Thank you for always being you, for your unwavering support and unconditional love.❤️ . Te amo mucho, Lola. . - Macho 13 @jlo
The best times are with these lil ones... 🙏🏼🌟 #ilovechristmastime #familia
About last night... Perfect way to start the year... Love that they still wanna fall asleep in Mama’s arms ♥️♥️🙏🏼
When we were kids, birthdays were exciting because it was all about the gifts we would be getting. A new bat, dance shoes, maybe a new CD (yes I’m old!). I see firsthand how that’s changed for Jennifer, and how she’s found joy in sharing with others. For someone who has been about giving everything she has 365 days a year—to our children, our families, the world—I hope today, we can give you all the happiness you deserve. I love you mucho Macha 13. ❤️

Today has an entirely different meaning to me than I did when I first became a father to Tashi and then my Ella Bella. It’s an incredible responsibility, and one I have always treasured. But as I grow older and proudly watch them doing the same, not only are my kids my pride and joy and number one priority - now they also motivate me. Every day, Tashi and Ella make me a better dad and a better person. Being a father is the greatest job in the world, more than any career I could have dreamed of as a kid. To all the fathers out there, never stop trying to be the best. I don’t. #HappyFathersDay

Earlier this month, the New York City native and his fiancée, Jennifer Lopez, traveled to Tel Aviv, Israel, with Natasha and Ella, as well as the Grammy winner’s 11-year-old twins, Emme and Maximilian. Rodriguez documented their family vacation on Instagram, posting selfies and gorgeous views.

“What an amazing time we are having on my first trip to Israel!” A-Rod captioned a group pic. “The people have been wonderful and have such energy. I will definitely be back and recommend visiting this incredible country!”

He and the “Medicine” singer, 50, got engaged in March. The former MLB player described his proposal on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon the following month, explaining, “I planned it for about six months. It was on a beach in the Bahamas. I had the ring but what was interesting was that, three days prior to me going down on one knee … I would rehearse three days in a row, because I wanted the sunset to be perfect. So one time, the sunset was at 6:27, the next day it was, like, 6:29 and then the third day it was raining.”
