It’s official! Madonna has adopted twin 4 1/2 year old girls from Malawi!
The girls will join Madonna’s other children: Lourdes (20), Rocco (16), David Banda (11) and Mercy James (11).
Both David and Mercy were also adopted from Malawi, and Madonna had been rumored to be adopting again from the country, but only now can it be confirmed. Madonna posted a most beautiful picture of her with the girls (whose names have yet to be disclosed) today on her Instagram page.
I can officially confirm I have completed the process of adopting twin sisters from Malawi and am overjoyed that they are now part of our family. I am deeply grateful to all those in Malawi who helped make this possible, and I ask the media please to respect our privacy during this transitional time. 🙏🏻 Thank you also to my friends, family and my very large team for all your support and Love! 💘🦋🦋🌺🌼🌸🦋🦋🙏🏻🙏🏻✈️✈️😂🤣🦋🦋♥️🌺🎈♥️
Madonna is not only a Pop Icon, but a philanthropist as well.
She’s started the Raising Malawi charity years ago, which works to fight poverty for orphaned kids. And this year, Raising Malawi will help to build the Mercy James Institute for Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care, named after her daughter.
As an adoptive Mother myself, this is a most special time for both Madonna and the twins, and of course, their new siblings, Lourdes, Rocco, David and Mercy.
