AceShowbiz - Alex Rodriguez has a big plan for Christmas. According to a new report, the former MLB player is set to spend "a lot of time together" with her ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis and their daughters following his split from Jennifer Lopez.
"It's like they're one big happy family when they're together," an insider says to Us Weekly. The insider also claims that A-Rod gets along "well" with Cuynthia's new husband, Angel Nicolas. "[The men's] relationship has turned into a friendship -- they support each other. There's no bad blood there."
This wouldn't be the first time for Alex to spend with the family as they celebrated Thanksgiving as a unit together last month. "[They] all plan on spending Christmas together," the source adds.
It was previously reported that Alex has been "in the picture a lot more now" after calling off his engagement to the "Jenny From the Block" singer in April. "He's single and isn't in a committed relationship so he has more downtime -- and [he] genuinely enjoys hanging out with his family."
The insider also added that the former New York Yankees player "usually" asks his ex-wife and the Miami relator to join him and the girls when they are doing "something fun."
Alex and Cynthia, who tied the knot in 2002, split in July 2008. The former psychology teacher cited "emotional abandonment" and "martial misconduct" as her reason for filing for divorce. She accused the former athlete of having an inappropriate relationship with Madonna while the now 63-year-old musician was married to Guy Ritchie. The pop star, however, denied the allegations.
Meanwhile, Alex and Cynthia share daughters Natasha, 17, and Ella, 13, together. "Alex and Cynthia coparent really well. They're in a good place," said a source. "Alex is a hands-on dad and his girls will always be his No. 1."
