Madonna Opens Up About Twins Girls She’s Just Adopted

Madonna has opened up about the twin girls she’s recently adopted from Malawi, and shared some heartfelt snaps.

Motherly Love

Taking to Instagram, the 58-year-old Material Girl posted a pic of herself holding hands with her four-year-old girls. Esther and Stellar.

“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,” she said.

“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!”

Six months ago, Madge shared a pic of her 20-year-old daughter Lourdes cuddling the girls in Malawi while on a visit to the orphanage they were at.

“3 Beauties,” she wrote. “Lola spends time with twins, Stella and Esther at Home of Hope Orphanage.”

Two new additions

Yesterday, the Queen of Pop was granted an adoption order from Malawi’s High Court for the twins.

“I can confirm that Madonna has been granted an adoption order for two children,” judiciary spokesman Mlenga Mvula told Agency France-Presse news agency.

“At the time we were granting her the permission she was in the courtroom with her lawyers.”

According to Mlenga, the 58-year-old singer “exuded happiness” and “she smiled while she was making her way out of the courtroom, and then she drove away” with her new daughters.

The girls, named Esther and Stella, have lived together at an orphanage in the African country for two years.

“Their mother died a week after she delivered the babies [in August 2012],”adds Mlenga.

“After their mother died, the children were looked after by their grandmother, who could not fully provide for them, so they were taken into an orphanage.”

Mum Of Six

This comes after the Rebel Heart singer denied reports she was going to adopt more children.

Madonna has previously adopted two children from Malawi, her son David Bana, 11, and daughter Mercy James, 11.

She is also mum to Lourdes Leon, 20, and Rocco Ritchie, 16, from previous relationships.
