Madonna welcomes adopted Malawi twins in Instagram photo

Madonna is "overjoyed" at making her twin daughters officially a part of her family!

According to MailOnline the 58-year-old singer applied for custody of the girls at the High Court in the capital Lilongwe on 25 January.

Madonna has a long history of doing charitable work in Malawi as she founded the Raising Malawi charity back in 2006. The pop star, who denied adoption rumors last month, was granted permission to adopt four-year-olds Stella and Esther, whose mother reportedly died in August 2012.

The Like a Virgin singer already has two children from Malawi after adopting David Banda in 2006 and Mercy James in 2009. A year later, she adopted her daughter, Mercy James.

The Guardian said Madonna's new children are 4-year-olds Stella and Esther.

The process began two years ago after Madonna filed paperwork to become their adoptive parent.

She is also mother to Lourdes, 20, who she had with Carlos Leon, and Rocco Ritchie, 16, from her marriage to Guy Ritchie.

Mvula said the "Like a Prayer" singer was inside the courtroom when the approval was announced and was smiling upon hearing the news.

The adopted twins would make four children that Madonna has adopted from the African country.

"The petitioner is a professional performer and I guarded myself against the danger of her merely reciting a well-rehearsed speech by asking her some rather uncomfortable questions to which she gave very candid answers", Mwale wrote in a court document.

In 2013, Malawi accused Madonna of exaggerating her contributions to the impoverished country and unreasonably demanding special treatment during a tour there.

She then thanked her friends and family for their support.
