Madonna's toyboy boyfriend Jesus Luz has compared their long term relationship to a "marriage" - insisting he already feels like a father-figure to the pop star's kids.
The 51-year-old singer began dating Luz in December 2008 after the pair met at a W magazine photoshoot weeks before her divorce from director Guy Ritchie was finalised.
She was rumoured to have split from the 23-year-old model/DJ last month (Feb10), but silenced the gossip about their relationship with a romantic vacation to Luz's native Brazil.
Luz has now opened up about his romance with the superstar in an interview with Brazil's RG Vogue magazine, insisting he feels totally committed to his lover and her four kids; Lourdes, Rocco, David and Mercy.
He says, "I consider myself a married man. I have a family. At my age, my father was married, my mother gave birth to me when she was 15."
