The Sweetest Photos of Madonna and Her Children
Gang's all here! Madonna posted a rare photo with all six of her children in July 2018 as the group visited the Malawi hospital she built one year after its opening.
The shot featured Lourdes, her adult daughter with ex Carlos Leon, Rocco, her teenage son with ex Guy Ritchie, son David and daughters Mercy, Estere and Stella, all adopted from Malawi.
Double the love! Confirming Estere and Stella's adoption from Malawi in 2017, Madonna wrote, "I have completed the process of adopting twin sisters from Malawi and am overjoyed that they are now part of our family," she wrote alongside a photo of herself holding hands with her daughters. "I am deeply grateful to all those in Malawi who helped make this possible."
In July 2017, Madonna opened Malawi's first-ever pediatric surgery and intensive care center, which she named The Mercy James Institute for Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care, after her daughter. At the opening ceremony, the pop icon opened up about Mercy, who was suffering from malaria when Madonna first met and eventually adopted the then-4-year-old girl.
“I fought for Mercy, and I won. It wasn’t easy," Madonna said. "And with the blood, sweat, and tears of so many people here today, we fought for this hospital — and we won. So I’m here to say: never, ever give up on your dreams. Never stop fighting for what you believe in. And finally: Love conquers all.”
When Father's Day came around in 2017, Madonna wasted no time in celebrating the holiday herself. "And Happy Father's Day to Me too because lets face it ... Im the Mommy and the Daddy," the singer wrote on Instagram. "I don’t care what the papers say."
In a January 2018 birthday message to Mercy, Madonna called her daughter a "rare and beautiful child."
"I can get through my day now!!" Madonna wrote alongside this bright shot of her youngest children — and so can we!
In April 2018, Madonna's Easter angels — a.k.a. her three youngest daughters — got together for a funny filtered pic.
Matching outfits, matching headbands and matching snacks for Estere and Stella in this smiley shot.
The Material Girl shared a sweet video of four of her six kids dancing to The Greatest Showman's "Rewrite The Stars," sung by Zac Efron and Zendaya.
Estere and Stella appeared excited as they were twirled by their older brother, David, who seemed skilled at juggling them both throughout the impromptu dance. Older sister Mercy also made a cameo, appearing briefly as she sang a lyric before walking off camera.
In August 2018, Madonna shared a photo of her smiley twins, writing, "Lets Make America Great Again!!!!! Love all people. Embrace all people, Remember that This country was built by immigrants and most of all look up the word #ironic#sailboatvibes #rebelhearts #lovemakestheworldgoround"
It was a family affair! Madonna planted a kiss on her daughter, Stella, as son David carried the tot during the opening ceremony of The Mercy James Institute for Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care in Malawi.
The singer shared a sweet photo on both Twitter and Instagram that showed twins Stella and Estere sleeping on top of brother David while the trio dozed on a couch. Madonna was there too, sleeping on the couch's cushions alongside a fourth unidentified child.
The legendary entertainer took to Instagram to share a photo of the twins rocking matching black-and-gold tracksuits with coordinating bow headbands. "Today's Blessing brought to you by Adidas!" Madonna captioned the sweet snap.
Madonna's twin daughters are pint-sized fashionistas! The pop icon shared a sweet photo of the newest additions to her family striking a candid pose while trying on a brunette and blonde wig from their mom's collection. "Getting Ready For the week Ahead," she captioned the post.
"3 Beauties! Lola spends time with twins, Stella and Estere at Home of Hope Orphanage," the songstress wrote, captioning a photo of her daughter, a student at the University of Michigan, with the twins.
"What happens when you get your first Barbie Doll! Pikachu is left in the dust!" Madonna captioned an adorable clip. The girls may have felt like their new dolls were more an extension of the family than toys, though, considering they began singing “The Finger Family Song” in full force while playing with their Barbies.
Mercy, David and Madonna came together to promote the new Pediatric Surgery Hospital in Blantyre, Malawi, in 2016.
