Well,  okay – the daughter of Madonna isn’t quite your average 13 year old.

Good for her for not rising to the reports. Now she can concentrate on reaping the benefits of the extra press attention when she goes on tour.

Who knows whether they’re happily married or not?  He does look a bit grumpy with all the media attention most of the time, and she looks like one hard woman to please.  But maybe they… you know… really love each other and stuff?
