Madonna cleared to adopt Malawi girls
MADONNA has been granted permission to take home twin girls from Malawi — just two weeks afer claiming not to be engaged in an adoption process.
But today a court spokesman Mlenga Mvula said: ‘I can confirm that Madonna has been granted an adoption order for two children.’
He added that the singer had been present in court at the ruling.
In January, Mvula claimed the singer had ‘filed an application expressing interest’ in adopting two children.
But Madonna issued a statement saying: ‘The rumours of an adoption process are untrue.
‘I am in Malawi to check on the children’s hospital in Blantyre and my other work with [her charity] Raising Malawi and then heading home.’
Madonna is already mother to two children from the country — David Banda, adopted in 2006, and daughter Mercy James, adopted in 2009 — as well as her biological children Lourdes and Rocco.
The new additions are reported to be four-year-old twins named Esther and Stella.
