Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez might just be one of the happiest, hottest celeb couples right now. The dynamic duo recently visited Paris for what JLo called their "baecation" (so adorbs, can you even!), both sharing super-couple-y shots from the City of Lights on Instagram. And in a recent interview with ET, the former baseball star spilled one of the main things he adores about his current flame: the fact that JLo is a role model for his daughters, Ella, 9, and Natasha, 12. 


"Jennifer is one of the most brilliant business minds that I've ever met," Rodriguez said. "She's the hardest working lady, and, you know, I grew up with a single mother. I have two daughters. I am a big, big promoter of women equality."

He went on to share that he appreciates that Ella and Natasha, whom he shares with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis, can look up to Lopez as an example. "I like that for my daughters, and Jennifer is the role model," he noted.

Talk about high praise! And further proof that "J-Rod" seems to be bringing their kids (JLo is of course mom to 9-year-old twins Max and Emme, whom she shares with ex Marc Anthony) and their lives together in a nearly flawless way.

"Our kids get along really well, we're both from New York, we're both Latin, we're both in our forties, we're really enjoying life," Rodriguez told Extra of life with Lopez. "But she really is one of the most impressive and smartest human beings I have ever met."

Of course, it's always hard for kids to adjust to their divorced parents introducing them to a new partner. But it sounds like A-Rod and JLo have enjoyed pretty smooth sailing in that regard so far. And all that admiration, adoration, and respect for one another has to be having a positive effect on their kids.

Clearly, their parenting game is as strong as their show business game. Keep it up, you two!
