Alex Rodriguez has broken his silence on his relationship with ex-fiancée Jennifer Lopez.
According to Alex, he’s ‘grateful’ for the ‘incredible life’ he had with Lopez, saying they bonded and learnt a lot during their relationship.
Rodriguez’ statement comes days after Lopez unfollowed him from Instagram and deleted all his pictures from her page. She’s now in a serious relationship with actor and former boyfriend, Ben Affleck.
“I had five years of an incredible life and partnership and also with my daughters, we learned so much,” the former Yankee slugger told Entertainment Tonight in an interview published on Tuesday.
The former baseball player added that he and his daughters, Natasha, 16, and Ella, 12 now have the “opportunity to take that and move forward and say, ‘You know what? We’re so grateful for the last five years, how do we make the next five years better because of lessons learned?’”
“I’m so grateful for where God and the light has really put me, and I’m really looking forward. Mostly to see how my girls keep developing” he added.
