According to the Malawian government officials, singer Madonna has been allowed to adopt four-year-old twin girls – Esther and Stella. Madonna has previously denied visiting the country for adoption purposes, even though she has adopted from Malawi before, in ’06 and ’09.

I can confirm that Madonna has been granted an adoption order for two children.

However, the Malawian public has accused the government of providing the Like A Virgin singer with preferential treatment. The laws of Malawi prevent non-residents from adopting children and taking them abroad. Thus, the girls’ birth father was present along with Madonna in the court when the judge ruled in her favour. A condition has been laid that a Malawian official will escort Madonna and the girls back to the US to observe the treatment of the girls before reporting back to the Malawian government.
