This week, Alex Rodriguez opened up about his life today. The former New York Yankees star talked about his budding business ventures and his family in an interview with ET. He also touched on his recent split with Jennifer Lopez, and how he’s moving forward in a positive way following the breakup. A-Rod told the outlet that he learned so much from the relationship and that he and his children are better for having known Lopez. “I had five years of an incredible life and partnership and also with my daughters, we learned so much. And now we have the opportunity to take that and move forward and say, ‘You know what? We’re so grateful for the last five years, how do we make the next five years better because of lessons learned?'” Rodriguez said.
The athlete also confirmed that he’s doing well post-split and that he’s looking forward to whatever the future has in store for his life. “So I’m in a great place,” he said. “I’m so grateful for where God and the light has really put me, and I’m really looking forward. Mostly to see how my girls keep developing.”
Rodriguez’s kind words about his ex-fiance come just days after Lopez unfollowed him via Instagram. She also wiped all traces of the former baseball player from her own IG account amid her serious romance with Ben Affleck (via Page Six). While A-Rod and JLo’s relationship didn’t work out, it appears there are no hard feelings on Rodriguez’s part.
