Let’s shelve the topic of whose sperm helped spawn Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter, Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern, for a moment.

Instead, we’ll focus on another baby’s daddy: The father of the 1-year-old Malawian boy Madonna is hoping to adopt. He says he wants to ask the singer how his son is doing. There’s just one problem.

“I don’t have her phone and mailing addresses. All I want is to find out how my son is but I don’t know how I can do it,” Malawi’s Daily Times quotes Yohane Banda as saying.

Banda reportedly spoke to the paper after it gave him a check for $788 from a Scottish nun named Christine Webster, who said she thinks David would have been better off staying in Malawi. Bono disagrees, however.

Still, according to the paper, Banda said he doesn’t want David returned to him and asked that human rights groups — who in November were granted permission to help assess Madonna’s fitness to adopt — not to interfere with his efforts to contact the singer.

“All I want is to find out how my child is doing and not to have him back,” he said.

Seems fair enough, Madonna. You’re being more unreasonable about this than Brooke Hogan would be if she claimed she could sing.
