Carlos Leon On His Relationship With His Daughter

MadonnaCarlos Leon opened up to People magazine about his relationship with his daughter, Lourdes.

“She’s at that point where she can call me and say, ‘Hey Dad, what’s up? What time are you going to get me?’ ” he said of Lourdes, 11. “It’s really cool. We talk every day.”

Carlos revealed that disciplining his daughter is not one of his strengths. “It’s hard for me to be the tough guy with my daughter,” says Leon, an actor and personal trainer who recently designed the fitness center in the Crescent Club condo in Long Island City through his company, Leon Fitness. “Maybe I should work on the discipline stuff, but I could leave her mother to do that!”

Still, he says, despite her famous parents, Lourdes (“Lola,” as he calls her) remains a grounded kid. “Look at me and the way I live: I ride my bicycle, I walk, I don’t have a driver,” said Carlos. “That’s how I keep her grounded. Her mom does a good job too – she’s not that person that everyone thinks. She’s very laidback and cool.”

And Lourdes shares her father’s taste in music, too, Carlos shared – taking out his iPhone to show off some music she’s downloaded. “Alicia Keys, Audioslave, Beck. I like everything she listens to!”

And a bit off topic, Carlos said of Madonna’s alleged affair: “Trust me, that’s a lie. I know for a fact, she wouldn’t do that.”

    I don’t care for Madonna at all, or her fakey accent! I do think her brother is a scum bag for his book and it will only give her more publicity also for her tour. I hope she makes it work with Guy, he seems to be a committed husband to her and he is ten years younger than she is, I would love to see this marriage work.

    She has her moms eyebrows and smile but the rest looks like her dad. It’s great that they are close.
    I think the Madonna rumors are very well times to coincide with her upcomming tour. You they do these things as promo right?

    I think Lola looks just like her Mom, before her “dye job” blonde hair. They have they same smiles and eyes. She maybe has Dads chin and nose. She looks like a very happy child and that is what matters. She is a pretty girl and looks very happy. I’m glad Dad and Lola and Mom and Guy are very close. It makes for a happy family. (you see Carlos with Lola and Rocco most of the time. Seems like an understanding family. And yes with David also at least once.) Best wishes to them!!

    I have a daughter with my ex-husband who is Hispanic. We have a beautiful daughter, inside and out. Lourdes is gorgeous but I am a bit partial and beleive my Rachel is even more gorgeous. She has a sweet spirit and kind spirit and I hope the same for Lourdes. Like Lourdes, my daughter looks more like her dad than me.

    “Lola” looks exactly like Madonna, I don’t see any resemblance to Carlos at all. I think he is a good father and a decent man, I am glad he has been successful.
