Lourdes Leon, Madonna“s eldest daughter, is dating Homeland star Timothée Chalame, who plays Vice President Walden”s son Finn on the hit show. According to reports, the pretty teenager and Timothée started a relationship after meeting at La Guardia High School of Performing Arts in New York, where they are both students.
Lourdes, 16, is thought to be studying drama at the school — which was the inspiration for the 1980 film Fame — and graduates next year, while Timothée is in the class of 2013.
“It”s common knowledge at the school that the pair are dating,” a source confirmed to the New York Post.
New York Magazine recently featured both Lourdes and Timothée, along with other students, in its “Reasons To Love New York” issue, under the heading, “Because La Guardia High School Is Still Churning Out Talent.”
Timothée is well known to TV audiences as Homeland“s Finn Walden, who dated Dana Brody (Morgan Saylor), a classmate and daughter of lead character Nicholas Brody (Emmy-award winner Damian Lewis).
Lourdes is Madonna“s daughter with actor and personal trainer Carlos Leon, who is set to marry his Danish girlfriend Bettina Holtz this summer.
Carlos and Lourdes are very close, and he is famously protective of his little girl. “I got the best thing out of that relationship (with Madonna), and that”s my daughter. My daughter is everything to me,” he told People in 2011.
He also said that while he knew Lourdes, then 14, wasn”t dating, he knew the day would come. “I”m dreading it… because she”s my little girl. I want her to stay young forever,” he confessed.
“I”m already overprotective, so when the time comes, I will be ready to have a talk with the guy she brings through the door. He better be ready, because I”ll give him the rundown!”
