Madonna: I'm Adopting Again!

Madonna is on a plane at this very moment with adopted son David Banda, 18 months.

The mother-son team are once again flying from London en route to Malawai, Africa.

Read all the details inside!


Life & Style has learned that Madonna and her adopted child, David Banda, 18 months, are jetting from her home in England to Africa at this moment to spend time with David‘s father, Yohane Banda – and that the pop superstar intends to adopt another child soon!

“She wants David to have a relationship with his biological father,” an insider tells Life & Style exclusively. “She’s going under the guise of a vacation, but she’s not on vacation – she’s on a mission.”

After Madonna adopted David from Malawi in October, critics accused her of using her wealth and fame to fast-track the process. Madonna publicly rebutted that claim, but felt – and still feels – that her reputation was hurt by the controversy surrounding the adoption, the insider says.

“She intends to adopt another baby soon, but first she wants to repair her image from all the bad press she got over David‘s adoption,” says the insider. “She plans on having David‘s father be part of the extended family. She wants to show that her adoption was an unselfish act of love and not what it was portrayed as in the media.”

Madonna‘s rep, Liz Rosenberg, confirms to Life & Style that Madonna is traveling to Malawi but denies that she has another adoption in the works. “I can confirm that Madonna is planning a trip to Malawi quite soon,” Liz says. “She’s going to continue her work with the Raising Malawi Orphan Care Initiative, including the building of a children’s care center. If her trip there brings attention to the tremendous need to help the children of that country, then so be it. No one objects to that.”

    interesting indeed! nice scoop, jared

  • teehee

    What is this, the competition between her and angelina to see who can adopt the most kids? First angelina, then madonna, then angelina , then madonna again. I think it’s great what they are doing, but i hope it’s for the right reasons.

  • ontario

    Wow, totally amazing and cool what she’s doing. Very exciting news…thanks Jared.

  • lurker opinion

    It’s life and style. That magazine and everything inside it is pure trash.

  • Nicole

    I doubt this, mostly because of the source, but also because there’s no way in hell she going to be able to take another kid out of Malawi. Those groups that tried to stop her taking David won’t let her get away with it twice.

  • Layla

    Don’t know if this Life & style piece is true but isn’t that the same statement that Madge’s mouthpiece gave when denying that she was adopting David? At any rate,good luck to her.
