Madonna is giving fans a rare look into her personal life – more specifically her six children, four of which are adopted. In a post commemorating the Thanksgiving holiday, the iconic pop singer shared what she was most thankful for in a series of photos that feature her children and, oh boy, have they grown up.
One photo features Madonna surrounded by all six of her children – including Lourdes, 26, Rocco Ritchie, 22, David Banda, 17, Mercy James, 16, and twins Stella Ciccone and Estere Ciccone, 10. The legendary singer was sporting an all-black outfit with red-orange hair and matching lipstick. She looked like an icon.
And so did all of her children. Most of the family sported black, but David and Rocco stood out – David rocking a light blue shirt and plaid pants, while Rocco wore a silver suit and dark tie. It’s the type of photo fans don’t get to see often, as Madonna chooses to keep a lot of her personal life as private as possible.
The first photo shows Madonna with her oldest child and first daughter, Lourdes Leon – who she shares with Carlos Leon. The 26-year-old was born on October 14, 1996, and got her start in the fashion industry as a teenager. You can really start to see the resemblance when the two are sitting next to one another.
Rocco Ritchie is her second oldest child and first son – who she shares with director Guy Ritchie. The 22-year-old was born on August 11, 2000, and is making a name for himself as an expressionist painter under Rhed. He was photographed in the group photo, but not in a standalone photo with Madonna.
Her other four children – Estere, Stella, Mercy, and David – were all adopted by the pop singer. David and one of the twins were photographed with Madonna, while the twins were photographed while playing with the DJ equipment. Could it be possible that we will see her children follow in her footsteps in the music industry?
In addition to the photos with her children, Madonna also took a few solo photos of herself in front of an empty bathtub – she was holding a glass of wine in one of those photos. It looked to be a fun and exciting night for Madonna, who was happy to spend some time with those she cares most about – her children.
Who Is Madonna Dating These Days?
One of the biggest burning questions regarding Madonna nowadays is who the singer is dating. Ever since she announced her split from Ahlamalik Williams – a relationship that lasted three years, on and off – everyone wants to know who she’s seeing and whether or not it’s going to result in anything special.
Most recently, she’s been linked to model Andrew Darnell. The 23-year-old is three years younger than Madonna’s oldest child and more than 41 years younger than Madonna herself. Despite the large age difference, the two are seeing where it goes and the singer is okay with keeping things casual for now.
Don’t be too surprised at the age difference, though. It’s something Madonna is known for throughout her dating history. In fact, she has only ever been linked to one person older than her – Warren Beatty, who was more than 20 years older than her at the time. Nowadays, she tends to fall for the younger crowd.
One report indicated that she hasn’t dated or married someone older than 28 years old since 2008 – when she was married to Guy Ritchie, 10 years younger than her. “She likes the idea of a guy being younger than her daughter,” said one of Madonna’s friends in an interview with the New York Post.
