Instagram Boyfriend Alex Rodriguez Had The Purest Reaction To JLo's Halftime Show

If only we all had a former Yankee cheering us on from the sidelines like Jennifer Lopez.

Just when you thought Jennifer Lopez and Shakira’s flawless Super Bowl halftime show couldn’t get any better ... behold Alex Rodriguez’s reaction to their performances.

The former baseball star, who’s proved himself to be quite the Instagram boyfriend as of late, was in the crowd at the championship game in Miami on Sunday night. Lopez’s twins, Emme and Max, and Rodriguez’s daughters, Natasha and Ella, were also at the game.

Rodriguez, like the rest of the internet, was excited to see his significant other absolutely slay the Super Bowl stage, but we were fully not prepared for his response.

During the show, he tweeted a video of himself dancing and singing along to Lopez’s track “On The Floor” surrounded by a group of jumping teens.

“AMAZING!! She ABSOLUTELY CRUSHED IT!” he wrote. “Wow, that was so fun! I’m so proud of you, Jen!”

Fans watching at home couldn’t help but celebrate Rodriguez’s affection for Lopez and wish they had a former Yankee of their own to lovingly document their every move.

Lopez’s show was truly a family affair with her daughter Emme joining the singer on stage to sing part of “Let’s Get Loud” alongside her mother.

The 11-year-old showed off her singing chops last year when she belted out the chorus of Alicia Keys’ classic song “Fallin’” and quickly went viral.
