I still don't believe this story 100%, but I heard it on Good Day L.A. this morning (and it was not a part of Tabloid Thursday), so I thought I'd throw it up here. Rumors have been around for a while, but reports are surfacing again that Madonna and cute hubby Guy Ritchie may adopt a child from an African orphanage next month. Oh how very Angelina of you Madonna! British paper 'The People' reports that a source close to the couple claims that that not only may Mr. & Mrs. Ritchie adopt a child, but they might end up bringing home twins or siblings in order not to break up a family. They even went as far to say that Madonna and Guy are "willing to consider a child with special needs arising from being abandoned in an orphanage." Ha. "willing," I love it.
The source adds that both Madonna's daughter Lourdes and son Rocco are "really excited" about the possibility of having a new sibling and from Africa no less! Wow, maybe dear Lourdes can teach the new baby French! A spokesperson for Madonna did not confirm or deny the story, only telling The People, "Madonna will go to Africa in the next six to eight weeks for her charity." According to reports a couple months back, Madonna and Guy are said to be building a school and home for kids in the African city of Malawi. Yeah, like I said, I don't know how much I believe the African adoption story ... the only thing missing from it is someone claiming Madonna called up Angelina Jolie for "advice." All joking aside, I do like Madonna & Guy and admire the way they appear to have raised their children. Any new child they bring into their home and make part of their family will be one lucky kid.
