Baseball legend Alex Rodriguez has played many roles in his life. From being a baseball player to now a business magnate, A-Rod has come a long way. The one role he is most proud of, however, is of being a father. From the moment Rodriguez retired from baseball, his primary focus became his daughters Natasha and Ella. Now, when his eldest, Natasha, at eighteen, is about to begin a new chapter in her life, there’s no way he would stay behind and watch from the sidelines. 

Taking to Instagram, A-Rod professed his love for Natasha as he attended her high school graduation. It wasn’t only Alex or Cynthia, however, who attended the graduation, but also the only sister of the former Yankee, Susy Dunand.
