At first glance, it looked as if Madonna had used old footage of herself from her Like A Virgin era for the promo video for new track Celebration.

But a take a closer look at the brunette with the sparkling eyes, clad in wedding gear, white lace gloves and wearing a lick of scarlet lipstick. 

The youngster isn't the Material Girl, but Madonna's daughter Lourdes. The pretty youngster, who turns 13 next month, joins her mum's boyfriend Jesus Luz in taking a starring role in the music video. 

She's also seen performing a backflip that her yoga-enthusiast mum would be proud of. As the images show, Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon - whose father is Madonna's former personal trainer Carlos Leon, has inherited not only her famous mum's looks but also her flair for performance. 

The youngster, known as Lola to her family and close friends, also shared the stage with the 52-year-old performer at a Tel Aviv concert. And she wasn't the only of Madonna's children to share the limelight – Rocco, her son with Guy Ritchie also made an appearance. 

While she's happy to let her kids have a taste of the showbiz world, Madonna wants to instill good values and doesn't want them to grow up as "spoilt brats", says a source close to the family.

Throughout the year, Lourdes is apparently given an allowance of only £10 a week, which is cut if she neglects household chores like tidying her room and making her bed. 

Education and culture are just as important as discipline. For example, Lourdes has attended the private Lycée Français School in London from a young age, and as a result, is now bilingual. And of course, the youngster and her siblings have the advantage of the wider world view that traveling with their mum on her numerous tours and promo trips allows them.
