Madge is a mommy again!
Madonna delighted fans when she announced that she added to her growing brood by two! After a month-long process, she adopted four-year-old twins from Malawi last week — and her new adorable daughters already inherited her flair for singing. The pop icon shared an Instagram video of her girls singing “Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star.”
“A little night music,” the mom-of-six wrote in the caption, adding a star and heart emojis.
The “Material Girl” singer filed paperwork to adopt Esther and Stella last month, and she completed the adoption process two weeks ago. She celebrated their adoption with an adorable Instagram announcement.
"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," Madonna wrote in the caption of the first photo of her and her girls. "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."

She is also a mom to four other children — 20-year-old daughter Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon and 16-year-old son Rocco Ritchie from previous relationships. She also adopted 11-year-old son David Banda Mwale Ciccone Ritchie in 2006 and 11-year-old daughter Mercy James in 2009, both from Malawi.
Madonna has been very vocal about supporting her charity, Raising Malawi — which she founded in 2006 to help children and orphans in Africa — and she revealed that she takes regular trips back to the country with her children. She opened up about their visits in a 2015 interview on the Today show.
“They walk in to hospitals and tell jokes and stories and embrace children who are in some pretty extreme states, health wise, and they're not afraid,” Madonna said at the time. And I love that.”
