On Tuesday, the AFP reported that a judge had accepted the singer’s request to adopt the twins.
“I can confirm that Madonna has been granted an adoption order for two children,” judicial spokesman Mlenga Mvula said.
Two weeks ago, Madonna called reports that she was in the country for an adoption “untrue.”
“I am in Malawi to check on the children’s hospital in Blantyre and my other work with Raising Malawi and then heading home,” Madonna said in a statement. “The rumors of an adoption process are untrue.”
The pop singer now has six children, four adopted from the African country and two who are biological.
