  • Madonna shared a rare family photo with her six kids for Thanksgiving. 
  • She said she was “most thankful” for them.
  • The family spent the holiday in Malawi. 

Madonna is thankful for her family.

The 60-year-old singer took to Instagram Thursday to share a rare family photo of her six children — Lourdes, Rocco, David, Mercy, and twins Esther and Stella — and expressed her gratitude for them. 

“What I am Most THANKFUL for!” she captioned the photo. “My children have led me down roads and opened doors I never imagined I’d walk through. Fame, fortune, and records broken could never equal that which I treasure and value most.” 

She also revealed that the family was celebrating in Malawi in East Africa in her caption. 

Lourdes Leon, 22, is Madonna’s daughter with ex-boyfriend and fitness trainer Carlos Leon. Madonna had Rocco Ritchie, 18, with her now ex-husband, Guy Ritchie. She adopted David, 13, Mercy, 12, and Esther and Stella, 5, from Malawi in 2006, 2009, and 2017, respectively.

The singer has returned to Malawi multiple times over the years. She co-founded the charity Raising Malawi in 2006 to support children and orphans in the country. 

All six of the kids traveled to the country with their mother in July 2018 to visit the Mercy James Pediatric Hospital a year after she helped open the center. 

“I love when my kids are in Africa,” Madonna told People in September 2017. “Their selfless behavior, compared to the normal complaining in the privileged world we live in, is great to see.”
