Tonight’s news has Carlos Leon doing interviews to promote his film, Immigration Tango. During one chat, he expounded on how grateful he is to Madonna for this super star’s contribution to his life: Their daughter Lourdes.
The result of a love affair that occurred in the 1990s, right around the time The Material Girl singer was filming Evita, Lourdes — who is now 14 — was conceived by Carlos Leon and Madonna.
Leon commented, through the Daily Mail via People, ‘[my teenage daughter] is the love of his life.’
That love of his life came when her parents were together in the years between 1994 and 1997. Very much in the news all over the world, Leon and Madonna were an item until their relationship disintegrated seven months after their child was born. Still, the former couple were often spotted together, squiring Lourdes in and around various and sundry places.
So, it’s not surprising Carlos Leon said that he is ‘forever grateful’ to Madonna for Lourdes.
In fact, Leon intimated that if history could be changed, he wouldn’t want to be part of it. This father is thrilled to have had the experience and to be a dad to his little girl who is growing up fast, showing both parent’s acumen toward creativity. Lourdes is also already business savvy as well, as shown by her involvement in a cutting edge clothing line with Madonna at such a young age.
To be sure, Carlos Leon should be proud, and so should Madonna. Indeed, Lourdes seems to be growing up great while the world watches with wonder and a very keen collective eye.
