Madonna's ex-boyfriend Carlos Leon gets married to designer fiancé

Madonna's former love Carlos Leon, father of her daughter Lourdes, has married Zac Posen designer Betina Holte in a private ceremony in Denmark.

Lourdes took pride at her father's wedding to his new bride and the 16-year-old, who has launched a junior fashion line Material Girl with Madonna, looked stylish in a navy blue flower-printed dress with a matching grey scarf.

She completed her outfit with summery white wedge heels and accessorised with gold jewellery and a thick silver anklet. Lourdes seemed to be having a whale of a time as she giggled outside the church with her friend and took photographs.



Carlos, 47, has been involved in his daughter's upbringing and has openly said he dreads the day she'll start dating. Lourdes has been linked to Homeland actor and fellow acting student Timothee Chalamet in the past.

"You would think Madonna was the stricter parent, but she's actually loosened the reigns because she trusts Lourdes so much," an insider source told RadarOnline.

"On the other hand, Carlos is the watchful dad who's laid down some very stern ground rules for his precious daughter. Madonna was the villain because she was very firm when it came to school studies and manners early on, but that's changed as Lourdes has matured. For a change she's not the mean parent!"

The former couple met in 1994 in New York City and shared a passionate romance, after which Lourdes was born. The couple soon split just months after Lourdes' birth.


On his wedding day to his new bride, Carlos gave a broad grin as he posed next to Betina outside the church in the coastal town of Gilleleje. He looked dapper in a grey suit and purple buttonhole flower that matched his bride's gorgeous bouquet.

Betina looked elegant in a fitted white gown that flowed out at the hips and ended in a dainty lace hem. The blonde beauty, who has appeared on several magazine covers and has been romantically linked to Jim Carrey, looked radiant as she turned to her husband and smiled affectionately.
