Mama Madonna

In September 1994, Madonna met fitness trainer Carlos Leon in New York City's Central Park. The two became lovers, and on Oct. 14, 1996, Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon was born. Even at a young age, the pop diva trained her daughter to become a future fashionista. In December 1999, the Material Mom and her then 3-year-old daughter were photographed arriving at a Versace fashion show in New York City.
