Madonna further fuelled reports of a romance with Brazilian model Jesus Luz after the couple attended a Kabbalah service with her three children, Mail Online reported.
In scenes which are sure to irk her ex-husband Guy Ritchie, the 22-year-old model was spotted just inches away from three-year-old David Ritchie.
Just three months after her high-profile divorce, it looks like Madonna is growing ever closer to the Latin hunk as he gets to know her young family.
Since moving back to New York last year, Madonna always makes time to bring her kids David, Rocco, eight; and Lourdes, 12, to the weekly Kabbalah meetings on Saturdays.
Jesus attended a meeting with Madonna two weeks ago, but this is the first time he's been photographed in such close quarters with her family.
Madonna was dressed smartly for her dose of spirituality in black trousers and a coat, injecting a bit of colour with a hot pink patterned scarf.
As usual, Malawi-born David was dressed in his white Kabbalah uniform, which is said to attract 'positive energy'.
Just like her mother, Lourdes had also opted for pink in a Grease-style bomber jacket.
In a humorous twist, Jesus was wearing a New York Yankees baseball cap - the team of baseball star Alex Rodriguez, who Madonna was romantically linked to last year.
Jesus has frequently been spotted with Madonna in New York since the pair met on the set of a W magazine shoot in Brazil in December.
Although raised a strict Catholic, Jesus has been taking an interested in the Kabbalah and friends of the model claim he is hoping to convert to the mystical offshoot of Judaism.
Meanwhile, Madonna's ex Guy was back in London filming his new movie Sherlock Holmes.
Since the couple announced they were splitting in July, Madonna has spent most of her time living in the Big Apple, which she plans to make her permanent base.
The 50-year-old has already enrolled Lourdes, Rocco and David in local Manhattan schools.
Despite being based in London, where Guy owns a pub in Mayfair, he is reportedly house-hunting in Manhattan so he has a US base for the children.
Madonna is planning to continue her Sticky & Sweet World Tour this year and bring Lourdes - her daughter from a previous relationship to Carlos Leon - with her during the summer dates.
However, Guy is hoping to spend the summer in New York with Rocco and David while Madonna is on the road.
A friend said: 'Guy will have Rocco and David for most of the summer. He's currently looking for an apartment in the Upper West Side of Manhattan.'
