Now that the ink has dried on the adoption papers of Madonna’s newest kids, the next thing to worry about is giving them a proper new home. Fortunately, that looks like it’s going smoothly, so far. Singer Madonna Louise Ciccone – better known as Madonna to anyone not living under a rock – last week adopted a pair of 4-year-old girls from Malawi. Since then they seem to have started getting accustomed to their new home.
Madonna even posted an adorable Instagram video of the girls singing. In the video, the girls – Estere, and Stelle – are on a couch in their pajamas. With a pianist in the background providing the tune, they give their rendition of “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”. And they do it with a lot of glee, too. Forgetting for a moment that they missed a few words, they seem to be actually be having a good time in the Material Girl’s abode.
Does Their Father Know
In a bizarre twist of events, however, Estere and Stelle’s biological father, Adam Mwale, turned out surprised that his daughters weren’t coming home. In a story shared by OK! Magazine, Mwale shares that he had been misled about the nature of Madonna’s adoption of his twin girls. According to him, the actual agreement involved Madonna taking care of the girls only temporarily.
He still thought Estere and Stelle were coming home. “I was told from the start that (Estere) and (Stelle) were going to a rich woman’s home abroad, that she would give them a good education, then return them to me, to live with me and help all of my family,” he said. “Now you are telling me the adoption is permanent. That cannot be true – I don’t want it to be true.”
The twins’ mother died shortly after childbirth, pressing Adam into giving the girls into the orphanage’s care.
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! 💘🦋🦋🌺🌼🌸🦋🦋🙏🏻🙏🏻✈️✈️😂🤣🦋🦋♥️🌺🎈♥️
Not The First Time for Madonna?
This isn’t the first time that a Malawian parent has accused the Like A Virgin singer from basically stealing away their children. One of Madonna’s elder children, Mercy James, was likewise adopted from the small African nation. Her grandmother – that is, the mother of Mercy’s deceased mother – has since said that they’ve been prevented from keeping in contact with Mercy.
Much like Adam Mwale, they claim that they had been duped into accepting the terms of the adoption, thinking young Mercy would be returned to them. Madonna’s camp has responded by insisting that everything had been done in good faith.
