The singer already has two other adopted children from Malawi, in addition to two biological children of her own.

Madonna's application to adopt twin girls from Malawi has been approved, bringing the pop singer's number of children adopted from the African nation to four.

It has also been reported that Madonna was at the court for the verdict and appeared happy with the outcome.

She had last week denied applying to adopt two more Malawian children while visiting the country where she runs a charity, and where she has previously been embroiled in controversy.

Madonna drove away from the court with her new daughters, the magazine reports, and the children's father and uncle also witnessed the adoption. "I am in Malawi to check on the children's hospital in Blantyre and my other work with Raising Malawi and then heading home", she said. A year later, she adopted her daughter, Mercy James.

The details on the children Madonna has adopted have not been released, as it is against the law to divulge this information during this stage of the adoption process.

The decision means Madge can take the girls back to her United States home. A government-appointed guardian will travel with Madonna and the girls to determine if she will be able to look after them. The names of new kids of Madonna are not known yet.

Madonna visits Malawi rather often, she wants her children from Africa to know their roots and to understand the situation.

While there are no more details about the adoption, Mlenga added the 58 year old was smiling as she heard the ruling. This year, the philanthropic group will build Malawi's first pediatric surgery and intensive care unit, the Mercy James Institute for Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care.

But Banda was ousted in 2014 elections and the new president, Peter Mutharika, moved to fix relations.

A representative for Madonna has been contacted by the Press Association.
