Cameron Diaz has only been dating baseball star Alex Rodriguez for a few months, but she is already bonding with his kids. Are they rushing things?
It seems that Alex Rodriguez isn’t just fast on the baseball field; he’s moving quickly in his relationship with Cameron Diaz — and has already introduced her to his kids.
The New York Daily News is reporting that the pair dashed down to A-Rod’s hometown of Miami this week, where they picked up his daughters, Natasha, 5, and Ella, 2, (whose mom is A-Rod’s ex-wife Cynthia Rodriguez), and the girls’ nanny. They then turned around and jetted back to Alex’s Manhattan apartment before the slugger headed up to Yankee Stadium for a big game against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
Doesn’t it seem too soon for A-Rod to be introducing his kids to his new girlfriend? He and Cameron have been dating for about five months, but given the fact that he rebounded into the relationship after breaking up with Kate Hudson (who he also rushed to introduce to his kids), shouldn’t they both be moving more cautiously?
It’s the first time Cameron has really been involved with a man with kids, and she recently told InStyle magazine that she wasn’t really interested in being a parent.
“Having children changes your life drastically, and I really love my life,” she said. “Children aren’t the only things that bring you gratification and happiness, and it’s easier to give life than to give love, so I don’t know. That kind of change would have to be either very well thought out, or a total mistake – a real oops!”
And don’t count on hearing wedding bells any time soon, either. She told the UK’s Stylist magazine (via The Huffington Post), “I think the big misconception in our society is that we’re supposed to meet the one when we’re 18 and we’re supposed to get married to them and love them for the rest of our lives. Bulls**t.” Her alternate advice? “Have someone for five years and another person for another five years… Life is long and lucky and yes, love might last forever, but you don’t always live with the person you love forever.”
