Dads are so embarrassing, even when your parent is a famous celeb. Alex Rodriguez recently admitted that he has a social media contract with his daughters—banning him from posting about or following them!

During a recent episode of Barstool Sports’ Chicks in the Office podcast, Rodriguez revealed his secret way of checking up on daughters Natasha and Ellas’s Instagram accounts.

A-Rod told podcast hosts Ria Ciuffo and Francesca Mariano, “My daughters don’t let me follow them on social media. It’s awful.” To work around the IG shut-out, Rodriguez, like plenty of other parents, has a “dad burner account.” But now that the dad has publicly dished about his faux IG account, we’re guessing his daughters will catch on.

Not only is A-Rod banned from following his daughters on IG, but the 14 and 11-year-olds have some pretty strong words for their dad about his own social media use. Rodriguez said, “Oh my gosh, they are like the COO and the CEO of my social media craziness, whatever I do.”

He continued, “They’re so good. Every time I post something, usually like, five out of 10, both of them would DM and say, ‘Dad, are you serious? Dad, you know I’m going into high school this year. Dad, this is how bullying starts.’”
