Madonna: Rare family photo with her children causes a stir
She shares rare footage with her children
It’s not something you see often: Madonna posted a photo posing with her six children.
Madonna, 64, has posted a rare snap with her six children – aged 10 to 26. The family apparently celebrated Thanksgiving in New York.
Madonna posts gothic Thanksgiving photos
The singer shared a series of photos with her more than 18 million followers on Instagram, which she captioned “What I’m grateful for…”. It features Lourdes, 26, Rocco, 22, David, 17, Mercy James, 16, and twins Estere and Stelle, 10. Madonna wears a low-cut, gothic-style black dress and multiple necklaces in the snaps. She combines matching black gloves, stockings and boots.
Lourdes comes from Madonna’s relationship with Cuban fitness trainer Carlos Leon, 56. With director Guy Ritchie, 54, with whom the singer was married between 2000 and 2008, she has son Rocco. Madonna adopted David, then 15 months old, in 2006, followed by Mercy James, then four, three years later. In 2017, twin girls Estere and Stelle completed the big family. All four adopted children are from Malawi.
Professionally, too, Madonna has reason to celebrate
Just a few weeks ago, Madonna also celebrated a professional milestone. Her album, “Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones,” released August 19, debuted at number eight on the Billboard 200 chart. This makes the pop icon the first artist in five decades (since the ’80s) to have albums in the top 10 on the Billboard charts. This feat has otherwise only been achieved by male solo artists or groups composed of men.
Her first top 10 album on the Billboard 200 chart was her self-titled debut in 1984. Five of her other albums made the top 10 in the ’80s, seven in the ’90s, six in the 2000s, and four in the 2010s – most recently “Madame X” from 2019 reached number one in the US album charts.
