Alex Rodriguez was met with a flurry of support from fans after he shared a heartfelt post on Instagram on Sunday, admitting he has "all the emotions." 

The former basketball professional took to social media to mark his eldest daughter Natasha's major life milestone. The 18-year-old star is about to graduate from high school and start college - and A-rod was left feeling divided over his daughter's next step. 

Take a look at the clip below to see the sportsman's incredibly close relationship with his daughters...

"Congrats! You are a great Dad and role model for your girls… they will soar," a second sweetly shared.

Alex is a proud father of two daughters, Natasha, 18, and Ella, 14, who he shares with his first wife Cynthia Scurtis. Alex was formerly engaged to Jennifer Lopez, however, the couple called off their plans to wed and parted ways in 2021. 

Singer J-Lo said at the time: "We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so. We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects.
