Alex Rodriguez's newest Instagram post has many people wondering if there's a secret message hidden in the image.
On May 13, the baseball legend posted a sweet snap with his teenage daughters, Tasha and Ella, as they shared a meal together at home.
"Din din with my girls! #DaddyDinnerDate," he captioned the image.
While the post seems rather innocent and innocuous, many fans couldn't help but notice that the dinner table included three empty chairs and three empty place settings. Fans, of course, immediately suspected that this was a covert message (and an invitation, even) to Jennifer Lopez and her two children, Max and Emme.
A-Rod and J.Lo famously announced their split and ended engagement last month amid reports that their romance was on the rocks. Just a month earlier, the couple acknowledged that they had hit a rough patch but were trying to work through it.
However, in the weeks after the split, Jen began cozying up to Ben Affleck, who she dated in the early aughts. "Bennifer," as they were dubbed at the time, even got engaged in 2002, but split up two years later. Recently, though, Ben has been seen at her house, and the duo even recently vacationed together in Montana, where Ben owns a home.
According to E! News, Alex was "shocked" by the Ben/Jen vacation.
"He truly thought they would be able to make it work and reconnect," a source close to the pop icon said. "He has been reaching out to J.Lo trying to meet with her and she has been very short with him."
Earlier in the week, a paparazzi camera asked Alex about vacation in Big Sky country. He simply replied, "Go Yankees," which is a subtle dig at Ben, who is a lifelong fan the Boston Red Sox, the Yankees' arch rival.
