Madonna in An Exclusive Chatshow Interview with Oprah Winfrey



Madonna said the 13-month-old boy she plans to adopt from the African country of Malawi is healthy and thriving in her London home.

Once again Madonna set the record on her adopted son, David Banda, straight. After an open letter, the pop superstar this time spills the bean in an exclusive chat show interview with Oprah Winfrey, tapped Tuesday Oct 24th and aired the next day Wednesday on "The Oprah Winfrey Show".

During the half-hour interview, Madonna said that she and husband Guy Ritchie had been contemplating adoption for more than two years before she first saw her future child, David Banda, in a clip from a documentary she's producing about the poverty-stricken African region, and felt an immediate connection.

"I became transfixed by him," the singer explained. "But I didn't yet know I was going to adopt him. I was just drawn to him." Also, Madonna revealed that David was healthy, despite having overcome malaria and tuberculosis. "David is amazing," she continued. "What really surprises me is how great my children are with him and how he's transitioned so easily from living in Africa in an orphanage to living in our house."

Additionally, Madonna put to rest rumors that Malawi's adoption laws were bent for her, as some human rights groups have claimed. She as well slams reports claim that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie persuaded her to adopt a child in Africa, claiming she's "actually never met Angelina Jolie."
