Pop star Madonna has adopted twin girls, Estere and Stelle from Malawi, announcing on social media she was “overjoyed” to bring them into her family.
The singer, 58, was granted permission by Malawi’s High Court this week to adopt the twin girls.
She posted a photo on Instagram of herself walking with the girls, who were wearing identical blue and white dresses and one wearing a hat.
“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 singer said in her post.
Madonna has previously adopted children from Malawi – David Banda and Mercy James in 2006 and 2009. She also has two biological children, Lourdes Leon and Rocco Ritchie.
She also posted a second photo on Instagram, thanking the orphanage Home of Hope and the organization Raising Malawi for caring for her daughters for the last five years.
There are 650 Orphans at Home of Hope where Estere and Stelle have lived for 4 years since they were 5 days old. Run by the generous and compassionate Rev. Chipeto and his daughter Lucy, Raising Malawi has been working with HOH for over 10 years since I met my son David there. If you would like to get involved by volunteering or donations go to.
