Madonna Granted Permission To Adopt Again
A few weeks ago, Madonna insisted that she was not adopting two more children from Malawi, but it looks like she is indeed adding to her family. Mlenga Mvula, a spokesman for Malawi's High Court, has confirmed that Madonna's been granted permission to adopt a set of twins, reportedly named Esther and Stella, and can now bring them to the U.S.
"Today the High Court made a ruling that she should go ahead and adopt the two children," Mvula told Reuters. "Within a year, she should provide us with a home survey report, which the court has ordered her to provide." Mvula added that Madge, "smiled while she was making her way out of the courtroom, and then she drove away” with her new daughters.
According to "People," the two girls were oprhaned in 2012, when their mother died a week after she delivered. They wound up in an orphanage after the grandmother who was looking after them could no longer fully provide for them.
So far there’s been no comment from either Madonna’s rep or the singer herself. The new children will add to Madonna’s already large brood, which includes 19-year-old Lourdes, 15-year-old Rocco, and 11-year-olds David and Mercy, who she also adopted from Malawi.

Ed Sheeran Reveals Why He’d Get A Tattoo Of Elton John On His Butt
Ed Sheeran considers Elton John a friend, so much so that he’d even be willing to get a tattoo of the singer on his butt. Well, not really, but Ed did joke about just that.
When BeBox Music asked Ed if he’d prefer to have a rear tattoo of Taylor Swift or Elton he chose Elton, and the reason why is pretty funny. “I reckon Elton’s face because he’s always asking me to sit on it,” Ed cracked. “He f**ing does; I’m not even joking.”
As for his friendship with Elton, Ed is still getting used to it. “There are lots of pinch-me moments in my career, and I think the way you don’t turn yourself insane is to just roll with them and don’t think about them too much,” he says. “But, obviously, it’s weird being able to call Elton a friend.”
