The 'Material Girl', 50, who also has two biological children, has announced that she is to adopt Malawi - bringing the total size of her family to some 14,268,714.
Madonna's lawyer, Sue Bigfee, said, "while this may seem like an extreme adoption process, Madonna is confident that she can be a great mum to her entire new family. Besides, by adopting everyone in the country she kinda dodges those awkward legal questions like she had with David".
However, the announcement has not been met with total approval. Madonna's surprise move has been challenged by Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie, who has threatened to sue Madonna over the move claiming that it threatens her status as the adoption queen of the world, and puts her plan to adopt the whole of the African continent in jeopardy.
