Exciting News For Madonna And Her Family
Madonna has been granted permission to adopt two more children from Malawi after the High Court in the impoverished southern African country gave its approval.
The singer's previous adoptions stirred anger among some Malawians who accused the government of allowing the pop star to skirt laws that ban non-residents from adopting children.
Madonna was inside the courtroom when the approval ruling was delivered, a spokesman for Malawi's judiciary said.
"Today the High Court made a ruling that she should go ahead and adopt the two children," the spokesman said.
Madonna, 58, adopted Malawian children David Banda and Mercy James in 2006 and 2009. The pop singer has two other children, Lourdes and Rocco, from previous relationships.
Madonna had denied reports that she wanted to adopt again after she visited Malawi last month, at the time saying her trip was for her charity work.
Madonna established the non-profit Raising Malawi in 2006 to provide health and education programs, particularly for girls, in the south-east African country.
