Madonna files adoption papers
Update: Madonna and Guy received interim approval, which allow them to take the boy home with them. Yohame Banda, the child’s father, talked with them at the courthouse and said, "They are a lovely couple…She asked me many questions. She and her husband seem happy with David. I am happy for him. Madonna promised me that as the child grows she will bring him back to visit.” As we previously reported, David’s mother, Marita, died late last year due to medical complications, and has since been raised in an orphanage as his father could not care for him.
We reported on Tuesday that Madonna’s publicist was changing her tune about her client and Guy Ritchie’s supposed new son. Apparently, there was good reason for it! According to the Associated Press, Madonna and Guy filed adoption papers at Lilongwe High Court in Malawi on Thursday, a report which Kingston Kilembe, director of child welfare services in the Ministry of Gender, Child Welfare and Community Services, confirms.
However, Madonna is not yet reading to confirm the adoption of her new 1 year old son herself – her rep still says, "I still have nothing I am able to officially confirm at this time."
