How many children does Madonna have? – The Sun

MADONNA is known around the world as a superstar singer.

Over the years, the 62-year-old star has seen her family expand by quite a few.

How many children does Madonna have?

Madonna has quite the brood and has six children in total.

She has two biological children – Lourdes and Rocco – who have different fathers.

The kind hearted star has also adopted FOUR children.

Here we take you through who her children are.

Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon

Madonna's first baby was born while Madonna was dating personal trainer and actor Carlos Leon.

The pair had daughter Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon in 1996, so she’s 24-years-old.

Lourdes is now forging a career of her own thanks to her mother’s influence and connections.

She graduated from La Guardia School of Performing Arts in New York and has since done a few bit acting roles plus some modelling.

Interestingly, Lourdes was considered for a role in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince but turned it down at her mother’s urging.

Rocco Ritchie

Madonna and Guy Ritchie welcomed a son, Rocco, on August 11, 2000.

The 20-year-old has mostly stayed out of the spotlight but does have showbiz friends, like Brooklyn Beckham.

Until 2018, Madonna and her ex Guy Ritchie were locked in a bitter custody battle over him.

David Banda

David was the first child that Madonna adopted from Malawi in 2006 when he was just a baby.

Now 15, he is an aspiring footballer.

David was the reason Madonna packed up and moved to Portugal in 2017 as he signed for a junior football academy there.

Mercy James

Soon after adopting David, Madonna applied to adopt Chifundo ‘Mercy’ James from Malawi in May 2009,but the country’s High Court rejected the application because Madonna was not a resident there.

She re-appealed, and on June 12, 2009, the Supreme Court of Malawi granted her the right to adopt the little girl.

Mercy, now 14, regularly appears on Madonna’s social media posts, where she showcases her talents at singing and playing the piano.

Stella and Esther

Stella and Esther reportedly lived together in Home of Hope orphanage in Mchinji for two years before being adopted by Madonna.

The pair were adopted by the singer in 2017.

Madge has previously shared a video of the girls getting to grips with a piano – suggesting they could follow in the footsteps of their multi-award winning new mum.
