Carlos Leon On Madonna: "I'm Forever Grateful"

Feb 21, 2011 01:20 PM


Carlos Leon, the father of Madonna's eldest daughter Lourdes, says he's "forever grateful" to the pop icon for giving him his daughter.

"I have no regrets," Leon told People. "I wouldn't change anything. I got the best thing out of that relationship, and that's my daughter. My daughter is everything to me."

"I'm a lenient dad," Leon admits. "I'm very empathetic, and I'm good at listening to my daughter … I'm probably a bad dad when it comes to disciplining her." So does that mean Madonna is the disciplinarian?

Carlos also says he's dreading the day when his very adult 14-year-old will start dating.

"I'm dreading it so much, because she's my little girl. I want her to stay young forever," he says. "I'm already overprotective, so when the time comes, I will be ready to have a talk with the guy she brings through the door. He better be ready, because I'll give him the rundown!"

Carlos, who is a personal trainer and an actor, met Madonna in 1994. The couple split after three years together but remain friendly.

Lourdes wrote: "I read this blog aloud to my mother and she is sitting here staring at me with no expression on her face, as if she doesn’t approve of it! So now you all know what I have had to put up with for the past 14 years of my life :D"

Happy Birthday, Lourdes!

Oct 14, 2010 03:12 PM


Queen of Pop Madonna's little girl - with fitness trainer Carlos Leon - Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon turns 14 years old today.

Happy birthday, Lola!

Who would've guessed Madonna's first born would turn into a famous fashionista? Little Lourdes launched her own clothing line entitled Material Girl (with Taylor Momsen as the celebrity face) at Macy's in August...

But what about singing? Will the teen follow in her mom's footsteps? Lourdes currently attended the LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, so she has plenty of time to decide!

Madonna And Lourdes Look More Like Sisters Than Mother And Daughter At Material Girl Debut

Sep 23, 2010 06:25 AM

Madonna Taylor Momsen Lola Leon material girl macys boots black fishnets belt daughter Just to be clear, Madonna, 52, is 39 years older than her 13-year-old daughter Lourdes. But the pair looked more like sisters than mother/daughter at the launch of their Material Girl clothing line at Macy's in New York last night.

Of course, she was looking like an older, more conservative sister in a knee-length black dress and untorn fishnets, but still. Speaking of a family connection, Material Girl spokesmodel Taylor Momsen looked like she fit right in with the Ciccones:

In fact, they could ALL be sisters! Somewhat twisted sisters, but still!

Madonna's Daughter Starts At Performing Arts School In NYC

Sep 9, 2010 09:13 AM

lourdesschool.jpg Madonna's daughter Lourdes Leon attended her first day of classes at LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in Manhattan yesterday, and aside from the fact that she has a superstar mom, it seems like everything is going smoothly for the 13-year-old aspiring actress.

Lourdes rocked ankle-high leather boots, all sorts of bracelets, a black skirt and a plaid vest over a white T-shirt for her big debut, and a classmate tells NYDN, "I saw [Lourdes] in the morning and in the cafeteria. She was talking to people ... She blends in with everyone. She seems like a normal person."

Lourdes (who has hinted that she wants to pursue a career as an actress) is reportedly in the drama department of the prestigious school, and freshman drama students are required to take courses in acting, dance, voice and diction, improvisation and theater history. Sounds like she's on the right path!

Tight tank top, short shorts and a simple pair of sneaks - loves it! Carlos Leon's look could totally be a summer hit... no joke!

We spotted Lourdes' dad out for a bike ride in NYC on Monday, and even though he doesn't have a fashion line like his daughter does with ex Madonna (entitled Material Girl, which hits Macy's on August 3rd), we still think he rocks this outfit!

Last night Madonna and her daughter Lourdes attended the Bent On Learning benefit at the Puck building in New York City, and the ladies were reunited with Madge's BFF Gwyneth Paltrow. Think Madonna is jealous of how smokin' hot Gwynnie looked in her fab Victoria Beckham designed dress? I know I would be!

P.S. I know Lourdes is only 14, but she sure knows how to step out and turn heads!
