Madonna has just expanded her family by two 'material girls' after confirming that she has adopted twin sisters from Malawi, Africa. The 58-year-old pop singer shared the happy news by posting a picture on Instgram of herself walking hand-in-hand with her new daughters accompanied by this emoji-laden caption:
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! ????????????✈️✈️????♥️??♥️
The two girls join Madonna's other children, Lourdes Ciccone Leon, 20, Rocco Ritchie, 16, Mercy James, 11, and David Banda, 11. Mercy James and David Banda were also adopted from Malawi.
Although Madonna initially denied adoption rumors, she appeared in Malawi's High Court on January 25 to ask for permission to adopt again. In 2006, Madonna explained to Oprah that is notoriously difficult to adopt children from Malawi because there are no set adoption rules or laws in place. Madonna has also supports Raising Malawi, a foundation that supports the country's 1.4 million orphans and vulnerable children.
