MORE REPORTS ON NEW MADONNA CHILD

Madonna

Pop superstar Madonna is reportedly preparing to fly to Malawi to bring home another adopted child, just months after officially announcing her divorce from director Guy Ritchie. The singer is said to have signed paperwork to adopt Mercy James from Malawi, the same country where she adopted her son David Banda in 2006. And now the 4-year-old girl's grandfather has allegedly confirmed the exchange will occur early next year. The family member tells Star magazine, "It breaks our hearts to know she will leave us, but adoption is best for her." James' mother Mwandida died at 18 just days after giving birth to her daughter. Madonna and Ritchie's split was announced in October, ending months of media speculation. The superstar filed for divorce citing Ritchie's "unreasonable behavior" and was granted a preliminary split on November 21st.
