Alex Rodriguez and Jac Cordeiro have officially made their relationship public on Instagram. 

The former Yankees shortstop posted a picture of himself with Cordeiro, a fitness instructor and founder of Jacfit, and his daughters Natasha and Ella for the holiday season. 

Rodriguez captioned the photo, “From our hearts to yours, Merry Christmas,” and added the tags “family,” “joy” and “grateful.” 


Rodriguez and Cordiero were first photographed walking together in Beverly Hills, California in October. 

Rodriguez’s relationship with Codeiro started one month after he split from Kathryne Padgett, a fitness model, after nine months. 

Padgett was the first woman Rodriguez publicly dated after his 2021 breakup with Jennifer Lopez. Lopez went on to marry her ex-fiancée Ben Affleck

Reflecting on his relationship with Lopez on the TV show Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?, Rodriguez said, “I wish her and the children, who are smart and beautiful and wonderful, I wish them the very best.” 

On the HBO show, he also spoke about the aftermath of his 2014 suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs. “When I think about it, those mistakes are the biggest gift and the biggest curse of my life,” Rodriguez said. “And I hope that because of that mistake, the lesson is I get to be a better father, a better partner, a better friend, a better son. And hopefully, other players can learn from my mistakes.”

This came after Rodriguez and Lopez’s joint statement after their split, saying, “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.” 

The pair had begun dating in 2017 and announced their engagement in March 2019.
