The daughter of a former Missouri state senator is making headlines because of her boyfriend.

Lyda Loudon, daughter of Republican John Loudon, is dating 57-year-old actor Steven Bauer. The controversy? She's 18.

According to US Weekly, Loudon and Bauer publicly appeared together last week at the premiere of Magic in the Moonlight.

Bauer has been married three times, divorcing two of the women before Loudon was born.

Loudon's mom, Dr. Gina Loudon, wrote an article for WND Sunday about how her family handled news of her daughter's relationship going public. She says despite reports, her daughter does not drink or do drugs, and "is committed to purity."
