Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon
Lourdes (also known as ‘Lola’) was born on October 14, 1996 – the result of a passionate affair between the iconic Madonna and Carlos Leon, a personal trainer from Cuba.
Although the couple split up not long after her birth, Lourdes has a close relationship with both of her parents. Carlos describes her as the love of his life.
Madonna and Lourdes have written a children’s book together (English Roses), launched a clothing line (‘Material Girl’) and Lourdes even contributed to the background vocals on Madonna’s MDNA album.
Last year, Lourdes, a budding musician, earned her diploma from the La Guardia School of Performing arts in New York and now attends the University of Michigan – the same university Madonna went to.
Lourdes has grown into a beautiful young woman. Take a look through our Then & Now gallery….
