Who really sent THAT Instagram DM from Alex Rodriguez’s account to Belinda Russell

Australian TV presenter Belinda Russell revealed she had received a direct message on Instagram from Alex Rodriguez’s account on Friday. 

And on Sunday, representatives for the former New York Yankees star said that the DM didn’t actually come from Alex, 45. 

Instead, the athlete’s daughter’s Natasha, 16, and Elle, 13, are the ones who sent the message.

‘An A-list star has slid into your direct messages on what… Instagram?’ he added.

Belinda, who is also a well-known TikTok personality, confirmed: ‘I woke up this morning, checking the socials and in my requests there was a message from Alex Rodriguez. As in A-Rod. As in J.Lo’s ex.’ 

Today Extra then showed a screenshot of the direct message, in which A-Rod simply wrote: ‘Great feed!!!’

‘All I can say is… he likes great content, Dickie. He just said great feed!’ Belinda said, downplaying her celebrity encounter.

‘I went, “This can’t be real,” so I tapped on it and [his account] is verified,’ she added.

‘If you count [there’s] four million followers. Give me a shout-out, A-Rod, and get me some followers!’ 

Innocent: When asked whether A-Rod was 'hitting on her', Belinda clarified it was simply a bit of banter and that she's happily married with three children

When Richard asked whether A-Rod was ‘hitting on her’, Belinda clarified it was simply a bit of banter and that she’s happily married with three children.

‘He’s surely not [hitting on me]. He just likes my videos… I’m very happily married,’ she told viewers. 

Later in the program, a somewhat embarrassed Belinda joked that A-Rod was ‘going to unfollow me now because this is so uncool. He just likes the videos that I do.’

‘We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and each other’s children.’
