Celebrity Parents RUMOR: Madonna adopting twins from Africa? By Staff Author Published on September 26, 2006 11:34 AM Share Tweet Pin Email According to rumors, singer Madonna, 48, and spouse Guy Ritchie, 38, are planning on adopting twins or a pair of siblings from Africa. A source said: "Originally Madonna and Guy planned to adopt only one child. But when they were told that might mean breaking up a family unit they immediately said they would take siblings or twins if that was the right thing to do." The couple wants to adopt young children: "They want children to be as young as possible but are prepared to take kids up to age four. And they are also willing to consider a child with special needs arising from being abandoned in an orphanage." Madonna’s spokesperson confirmed her flight to Africa next month but refused to say anything about possible adoption plans. Madonna has daughter Lourdes, 9, with Carlos Leon and son Rocco, 6, with Guy. Source: Dlisted.com Thanks to CBB readers Caroline, Bella and Christina.
