Madonna is open to adopting more children

September 16, 2017 GMT

Madonna will “never say ‘never’” to adopting more children.

The 59-year-old singer - who has Lourdes, 20, Rocco, 17, Mercy and David, both 11, as well as five-year-old twins Stelle and Estere - has revealed she has not entirely ruled out expanding her brood or legally looking after any more kids.

When asked about her future plans to adopt again in an upcoming interview with ‘CBS Sunday Morning’, which will air on Sunday (09.17.17), she said: “Who knows? Yeah, I - I never say never. You never know what surprise awaits you around the corner.”

And the ‘Material Girl’ hitmaker - whose mother Madonna Louise Ciccone passed away when the musician was just five years old - has revealed motherhood has been a form of therapy for her and a “very healing experience” because she thinks it has enabled her to be the parent she “never had”.

Speaking about parenthood, she said: “I get to become the mom I never had. So, yeah, it’s a very healing experience.”

Madonna first started visiting Malawi in 2006 where she set up the charity Raising Malawi, which the star co-founded with Michael berg 11 years ago and helps with the health and education system in the area in East Africa.

But the songwriter thinks she is a “crazy person” for setting up the non-profit organization, and the newly constructed hospital in the area.

Speaking about her thoughts on her charity work, she said: “I’m a crazy person. What am I doing this for? So here we are. It happened. It’s built, and it’s up and running. And children’s lives are being saved as a result. And I feel like, you know, sometimes you can’t think too far in advance.”

Meanwhile, Madonna thinks she has come a long way as she has tamed her former “crazy” side since having children, although she has admitted she has done “provocative things” in the past for the sake of them.

She explained: “Oh, I’m sure I’ve done provocative things just for the sake of provocation,′ she concedes.

“Not so much now. Definitely, not since I have children. But I think, when I was younger, I used to just say things, do crazy things. But everybody does.”
