The talented singer was granted an adoption order for twins Esther and Stella by the Malawi High Court, judicial spokesman Mlenga Mvula said.

Madonna, who set up a charity called Raising Malawi in the southern African nation in 2006, adopted Malawian children David Banda in 2006 and Mercy James in 2009.

The Crazy For You singer’s charity is funding a surgical unit for children at the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Blantyre, the commercial hub of Malawi.

The veteran actress who has previously been embroiled in controversy in Malawilast visited the hospital in July, taking her two adopted Malawian children with her.

The performer was stripped of VIP status by former president Joyce Banda’s government in 2013 and accused of being “uncouth” and wanting eternal gratitude from the country for her adoptions.

But Banda was ousted in 2014 elections and the new president, Peter Mutharika, moved to repair relations, saying “my government has always been grateful for the passion Madonna has for this country”.

Last July, Madonna said she would not revive plans for a $US15 million ($24 million) academy for girls in Malawi, which was cancelled amid allegations of mismanagement — leading to her tiff with Banda.

Madonna divorced film director Guy Ritchie in 2008, now has six children, including daughter Lourdes Leon, 20, and Rocco Ritchie, 16.
