Madonna Shares Sweet Photo: Look at My Adopted Kids!

by at .

Madonna may have received some heat a few weeks ago when she said she had thought about blowing up the White House.

But we expect the singer will receive nothing but praise and well wishes for the following piece of major news:

She has adopted twin four-year olds from Malawi.

Although the legendary artist denied rumors that an adoption was pending last month, multiple outlets reported earlier today that the High Court from Malawi granted the 58-year-old the ability to adopt these girls from the country on Tuesday.

Madonna then appeared in court with her attorney alongside the twins' father and uncle, who both witnessed the adoption.

And then she went ahead and confirmed the life-altering decision herself on Instagram this afternoon.

“I can officially confirm I have completed the process of adopting twin sisters from Malawi and am overjoyed that they are now part of our family,” Madonna captioned an photograph of herself walking hand-in-hand with the toddler, both of whom were wearing matching blue-and-white polka dot patterned dresses.

Continued The Material Girl:

“I am deeply grateful to all those in Malawi who helped make this possible, and I ask the media please to respect our privacy during this transitional time.

"Thank you also to my friends, family and my very large team for all your support and Love!"

Madonna, Adopted Kids

Malawi's judiciary spokesperson told People Magazine that the girls' mother died in August 2012, a week after giving birth to the twins.

"After their mother died, the children were looked after by their grandmother, who could not fully provide for them, so they were taken into an orphanage," this spokesperson explained.

Of course, the adoption process in Malawi is not anything new to Madonna.

She is the birth mother of Lourdes Leon, 20, and Rocco Ritchie, 16; and she adopted 11-year-old son David Banda and daughter Mercy James from the country in 2008 and 2009.

Some folks there may also be unaware that Madonna actually founded the Raising Malawi organization more than a decade ago.

Its mission is to fight against poverty among the nation's orphaned children by constructing schools, strengthening hospitals and providing resources for orphans and impoverished children.

Pretty awesome, huh?

Madonna Chooses Love

This charity work played a big role in the singer's latest adoption, according to the aforementioned judiciary spokesperson.

"Madonna has been very close to Malawi," she continued telling People. "She has been involved in so many projects and is currently helping to expand the children's ward at the Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital.

"So Madonna has been coming to Malawi frequently. So it is not unusual to people in Malawi at all. They know Madonna very well in terms of the high-profile work she has done for the community."

We send Madonna and her two new kids nothing but our very best wishes.

Madonna Quotes

Leave her alone. She’s gonna be 16 soon and then 17 and then 18, and then she might show her knees and then what's gonna happen?

Madonna [on Miley Cyrus Vanity Fair photos]

My husband and I are not planning on getting a divorce. I know Alex Rodriguez through Guy Oseary, who manages both of us. I brought my kids to a Yankee game. I am not romantically involved in any way with Alex Rodriguez. I have nothing to do with the state of his marriage or what spiritual path he may choose to study.
