Lourdes Leon is turning heads – big time. The 23-year-old daughter to pop icon Madonna is currently on vacation in The Maldives, although it didn’t look like this beauty was being left alone. Hot on her heels was The Daily Mail’s paparazzi, with the British newspaper proving swift to publish its pictures of Lourdes soaking up the sun in a tiny bikini.
She’s got one hell of a bikini body.
You can see a pretty extensive set of photos of Lourdes in her bikini here.
Lourdes wasn’t alone on the beach as she showcased her trim body in a mismatched bikini – yellow on top and floral-print down below. The model was with long-term boyfriend Jonathan Puglia, and she’s been dating him for four years now.
Lourdes and Jonathan were first snapped together back in 2016 – and no, he isn’t from an exotic or far-flung land. Puglia is from Ohio and his mom is a hairdresser.
Meanwhile, 61-year-old mom Madonna is currently dating 25-year-old Ahlamalik Williams.
Lourdes tends to keep her head down. That said, she has been dubbed an “it” girl by W Magazine. 2019 saw Lourdes land herself an impressive (and likely lucrative) contract with Italian fashion brand Miu Miu.
Madonna herself has gushed about her daughter.
“I’m green with envy because she’s incredible at everything she does – she’s an incredible dancer, she’s a great actress, she plays the piano beautifully, she’s way better than me in the talent department. But she doesn’t have the same drive,” the singer said of her eldest daughter.
Madonna laid out her thoughts more extensively when it came to social media.
“And again, I feel social media plagues her and makes her feel like, ‘People are going to give me things because I’m her daughter.’ I try to give her examples of other children of celebrities like Zoe Kravitz, for instance, who have o work through that ‘Oh yea, you’re the daughter of..’ – and then eventually you are taken seriously for what you do,” she said.
“She grew up with money, and I didn’t. So everything is going to be different. But what can I do? I can’t fixate on it. I just have to do my best,” Madonna added.
And it should be noted that all snaps posted here are from fan accounts, bar the video with Madonna herself. Lourdes isn’t on Instagram, choosing instead to stay away from social media. She’s also never given a proper sit-down interview.
Lourdes did, however, make headlines at the end of 2019 for participating in a simulated orgy at Art Basel.
Lourdes joins other celebrities who are known for staying off Instagram. MUC star Scarlett Johansson, “Family Guy” actress Mila Kunis, and “Lara Croft” actress Angelina Jolie don’t have accounts.
