ET spoke with the legendary athlete last week at New York Fashion Week, where he talked about daughters Natasha and 9-year-old Ella’s special relationship with 48-year-old Lopez.
“My girls adore Jennifer,” Rodriguez told ET. “She’s a great role model and they want to do exactly what Jennifer does. They want to sing, they want to dance, they want to produce, they want to direct. A lot of people don’t know she’s also a great athlete and great business person, and for me, I’m the luckiest father in the world to be able to expose my beautiful daughters to someone as brilliant as Jennifer.”
