It looks like Alex Rodriguez knocked his daughter’s ninth birthday party out of the park this weekend. The former baseball star hosted a Maimi poolside bash for his little girl Ella, documenting the big day on his Instagram account for all to see. On Saturday, the 41-year-old dad posted a photo and video from the party, showing his daughter happily surrounded by friends and family.
Fans first got a glimpse of the party when Alex shared a short video of his daughter and her friends scrambling to grab candy from a piñata. In the clip, Alex can be seen walking around the cluster of children as they frantically grabbed for sweet treats. The athlete was grinning and laughing while he watched the kids rip apart the cupcake-shaped piñata. “Sharing is caring!” repeatedly shouted the person holding the camera.

In a second post, Alex and his ex-wife, Cynthia Scurtis, were all smiles as their daughter Ella giddily blew out her birthday candles. “#BirthdayGirl,” the father of two wrote alongside the post which showed his daughter flanked with bathing suit clad friends. Alex and Cynthia also share a 12-year-old daughter named Natasha.

Ella had actually turned nine on April 21. Of course, A-Rod shared a sweet message for her on the special day, writing: "Nine years ago today my baby girl was born and every single day since then has been filled with love and joy..." he wrote along with the photo. "my lil wild child... daddy adores you... Hope you have the happiest birthday ever!! I love you Ella Bella."

Showing off his daughters on social media is nothing new for Alex. On Instagram, he recently posted an adorable photo of Ella on her spring break, writing: "#SpringBreak love waking up to this face <3.” The star also shared some fun photos from his family’s Easter celebrations in the Dominican Republic. One featured Alex and his daughters enjoying a Sunday Easter brunch, while another depicted the group cheering on his girlfriend Jennifer Lopez during her concert.

Alex and Jennifer’s families seem to be blending together quite nicely. The duo and their children spent Easter weekend together. The Ain't Your Mama singer had the support of her nine-year-old twins Max and Emme as she performed for the first time in the Caribbean country at the Altos de Cha von Amphitheater during the holiday weekend. At one point Jennifer was joined on stage by her ex-husband Marc Anthony as A-Rod watched from the crowd. Jen and Marc split in 2014, while Alex and Cynthia ended their romance back in 2008. Both couples continue to co-parent their children.
