Madonna confirmed that she’s just adopted twin girls from Malawi. The pair will join Madonna’s son David Banda and daughter Mercy James, whom she respectively adopted from Malawi in 2006 and 2009. The AP notes that the twins’ mother died within a week of their birth due to complications suffered during childbirth. The twins’ father has five other children and was present at the January 25 hearing attended by Madonna, where it was determined that he was unable to provide for all his dependents.
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! 💘🦋🦋🌺🌼🌸🦋🦋🙏🏻🙏🏻✈️✈️😂🤣🦋🦋♥️🌺🎈♥️
