The 'Immigration Tango' actor has opened up that he has no regrets about his past relationship with the '4 Minutes' hitmaker because he got the best thing out of that relationship, their daughter.
's ex-lover Carlos Leon says he is "forever grateful" to the singer for giving him his daughter Lourdes. The personal trainer-and-actor insists he has no regrets about his relationship with the pop superstar in the mid-90s because if it hadn't have happened he wouldn't be a father.

"I'm forever grateful to [Madonna]. I have no regrets. I wouldn't change anything," he told People magazine. "I got the best thing out of that relationship, and that's my daughter. My daughter is everything to me."

Carlos admits he finds it tough disciplining 14-year-old Lourdes, who designed the "Material Girl" clothing line with her mother Madonna, and accepts he can be too soft with her, like a lot of parents with teenagers. He added, "I'm a lenient dad. I'm very empathetic, and I'm good at listening to my daughter ... I'm probably a bad dad when it comes to disciplining her."

The 44-year-old actor, who stars in new film "", claims Lourdes hasn't started dating yet, and he is "dreading" the moment when he has to meet her first boyfriend. He said, "I'm dreading it so much, because she's my little girl. I want her to stay young forever."

"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!"
