The pop world was in shock this morning after it was revealed that Madonna, already the mother of two of her own children, as well as that Malawian kid, is to adopt her very own father, Silvio "Tony" P. Ciccone!
Mr Ciccone is reported to be "pleased" with the arrangement.
The singer had been expected to adopt a few more little black kids from Malawi to complement David Banda, the one she already has, and nobody could have seen this latest move coming.
'Insiders' even say that the sexy diva even contemplated adopting her ex-husband, British actor Guy Ritchie, but that, when approached, he had declared himself "loathsome of her".
Today Madonna addressed reporters and told them:
"I like control, and I like adopting things. I may adopt a polar bear next."
