Alex Rodriguez discussed bonding with his daughters Natasha and Ella in the kitchen amid the COVID-19 pandemic and how it has been one of the positive sides of quarantine.

Alex Rodriguez has been able to see the silver lining in the cloud of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic thanks to his two beautiful daughters, Natasha, 15, and Ella, 12.

The former baseball player was joined by his girls in a new commercial campaign for LG alongside 2 Chainz, Billy Porter, and Mindy Weiss, as they virtually prepared homemade meals together.

In the ad, A-Rod asked his girls if they were up for a juicy four-course homestyle meal, and they expressed their shock at the fact that he opted to cook asking, "you're cooking?"

Much more than cooking with his teenagers for the commercial, A-Rod has been able to spend more time with his girls in the kitchen because of the pandemic.

It is no surprise that the girls were confused as the MLB legend noted in an interview with People Magazine that Natasha and Ella always try to throw him out of the kitchen because they never fail to remind him that cooking isn’t his forte.

A-Rod chose to cook Chicharron de Pollo—which is Dominican fried chicken marinated in Latin spices—with the girls. The delicacy was a sentimental one for the former athlete as he recalled that his mother used to make the meal during large family gatherings.

However, much more than cooking with his teenagers for the commercial, A-Rod has been able to spend more time with his girls in the kitchen because of the pandemic. Speaking about it, he said:

“We’ve had a lot more family time and home-cooked meals lately. It’s been one of the nice things to come out of this pandemic, which has been so sad.”

Also, he and his fiancée, Jennifer Lopez, have been able to have frequent nightly dinners with their blended family— something that rarely occurred before the pandemic—which includes JLo’s twins, Emme and Max.

The “Pa Ti” crooner explained that before the health crisis, her and A-Rod’s busy schedule kept them from spending quality time together with their children. JLo described the dinners as a “huge blessing” and added that she didn’t think it would have been possible without the pandemic.

It has since made her more reflective and aware that family is what truly matters. Now, she is left feeling hopeful that the tradition doesn’t die once the pandemic is over.

The couple has also found a way to stay active and healthy with the kids amid the quarantine. In March, A-Rod shared a video of him and JLo turning their backyard into a training ground as he taught the kids how to play catch.

In the Instagram post, the sports icon was seen teaching his fiancé and Emme the rudiments of baseball as they had so much fun. Max joined them later on but wasn’t seen participating in the game.
