Aww! Looks like A-Rod will have a lot to be thankful for on Father’s Day next month!

As the third baseman for the New York Yankees, Alex Rodriguez, 34, spends a pretty huge chunk of his year on the road. But there are two people A-Rod says he ALWAYS makes time for — his daughters, Natasha, 5, and Ella, 2! “Our schedule is so crazy busy,” he told HollywoodLife.com exclusively May 14 at Gotham magazine’s cover party at the Hilton’s High Bar in NYC. “We play 200 games a year. I love to travel, and I love to read. My favorite thing to do is spend time with my daughters.”

And being a member of arguably the most famous sports team in the world, A-Rod also has the added pressures of being a role model to millions of kids. So how does he handle the demands?

“It starts with being comfortable in your own skin, learning from your mistakes and just being yourself,” he told us. “I think, overall, it’s important to know that we have a responsibility and we are role models, and it’s truly a privilege.”
