Madonna Shares Rare Family Photo Featuring All 6 of Her Kids in Celebration of Thanksgiving
It's not often Madonna shares a family photo featuring all six of her children, but this Thanksgiving, she wanted the world to know just how thankful she is for her kids. The 64-year-old posted a collection of photos from her family's holiday on her Instagram on Nov. 25, including one featuring her and her six children. Additionally, she also shared pictures of the kids DJing, a plate featuring a piece of paper for guests to write what they're thankful for on, and a snap of her sipping some wine. The "Like a Prayer" singer captioned the post, "What I'm thankful for…………. 💛."
Madonna kicked off her carousel of photos with a picture of her and her oldest daughter, 26-year-old Lourdes Leon, whom she shares with Carlos Leon. She then shared a group photo featuring all of her kids: Lourdes; Rocco (22), whose father is director Guy Ritchie; and David (17), Mercy (16), and 10-year-old twins Stella and Estere, who were all born in Malawi and adopted by the pop star. From there, she shared several snaps of the kids hanging out with her and each other, while also having fun with some DJing equipment.
While the Grammy winner rarely shares full family photos, she's never been shy about telling the world just how much she loves being a mom. In 2020, she even got her first ever tattoo at age 62 in honor of her kids. At the time, she shared a photo of the inking process on Instagram, and she later revealed her wrist tattoo features all of her children's initials. In April, she revealed her newer tattoos on Instagram, including a matching one she shares with David.
For Madonna, having a large family has always been her dream, and she treasures her time with her kids. In a 2017 interview with People, the singer opened up about her adoption journey. "It's inexplicable," Madonna said of meeting her children for the first time. "It's like saying, 'Why do you fall in love with the people you fall in love with?' You look into the eyes of somebody, you feel their soul, you feel touched by them — that's it."
