Alex Rodriguez is one proud papa!
The former MLB star took to Instagram on Friday to wish his youngest daughter, Ella, a happy birthday, with an adorably sweet message and snapshot.
"Nine years ago today my baby girl was born and every single day since then has been filled with love and joy," he captioned a stunning black-and-white shot of the two cuddled up together. "My lil wild child... daddy adores you."
"Hope you have the happiest birthday ever!!" he added. "I love you Ella Bella."
Earlier this month, the athlete also shared a photo of his "fun day in the Bronx" with Ella and her older sister, 12-year-old Natasha.
"#Daddysgirls," his hashtag read.
