Alex Rodriguez's daughter Natasha surprises him at NBA game in Texas.

Alex Rodriguez couldn't believe his eyes when he saw his older daughter appear at the NBA playoffs in Texas this week.

While sitting courtside with his younger daughter Ella, 16, at the Minnesota Timberwolves game against the Dallas Mavericks, the former New York Yankees player, 48, was surprised by his 19-year-old daughter Natasha — and had the ultimate shocked reaction.

As Ella tried to distract her dad by pointing at something on the jumbotron, Natasha slyly walked up beside him, prompting the athlete's jaw to drop in awe. The two then embraced for a big hug and Natasha danced with excitement that she pulled off the surprise.

"I could not believe it! Ella and @thenatasharodriguez you two got me so good ❤️," Rodriguez captioned an Instagram video that caught his reaction.

Rodriguez shares daughters Ella and Natasha with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis. The two wed in 2002 before getting divorced in 2008.

Last month, the former pro athlete celebrated his daughter Ella as she turned 16.

On April 21, Rodriguez shared multiple photos of his daughter over the years on Instagram, including one throwback shot of the pair lounging on a pool chair.

Another throwback pic showed a younger Ella wearing a graduation cap, while a more recent selfie showed her posing alongside her dad as a teen while wearing a New York Yankees top and sunglasses.

Among the carousel of photos was a photo of a younger Ella posing with her dad on the baseball field, while another more recent image showed Rodriguez kissing his daughter on the forehead on a boat with a double rainbow in the background.

The sportsman also shared a mirror selfie of the pair posing in a clothing store. "Happy Birthday Ella! You light up [every] room you walk into and I am so proud of you in every way. ❤️," Rodriguez captioned the post.
