Madonna reportedly plans to adopt two more children from Malawi

Madonna wants to add to her brood!

The "Material Girl" crooner plans to adopt two more children from Malawi, according to an Associated Press report.

The 58-year-old singer appeared before a High Court judge on Wednesday, but she will have to wait a week before finding out if her request is approved. Her decision to adopt kiddos from Malawi is no coincidence. In 2006 she founded a charity called Raising Malawi, so the impoverished nation holds a special place in the singer's heart.

Madonna is already mother to four children: Lourdes Leon, 18, Rocco Ritchie, 16, David Banda, 11, and Mercy James, 11. She adopted David Banda in 2008 and Mercy James just a year later.

And there hasn't been a shortage of family drama for Madonna in recent months -- she lost a bitter custody battle with ex-husband Guy Ritchie over their 16-year-old son, Rocco, late last year. After the news became public back in September 2016, Madonna posted a series of tweets that hinted at her frustration.

The surprising adoption news comes after a wild weekend for the pop icon. She attended the Women's March in Washington D.C., where she gave an expletive-laced speech in front of a massive crowd that caused media outlets like CNN to MSNBC to abruptly cut their live coverage.

During the rant, Madonna also mentioned that she thought a lot about "blowing up the White House," a jaw-dropping remark that caught the attention of Secret Service. Politician Newt Gingrich also went on a scathing rant in response to the singer's behavior on Fox & Friends, saying she should be arrested for her actions.

She later clarified her comments, saying that she "spoke in a metaphor."
