Madonna’s Baby No.2…

ANOTHER week and another baby for Madonna.

Toddle forward and look cute, Jessica Kondanani, an 18-month old orphan living in Malawi.

The Sun says Madonna met Jessica in an orphanage earlier in the year and thinks she would make a great sister to her new son David Banda.

Penstone Kilembe, Malawi’s minister of child welfare, says: “Her [Madonna’s] first choice, before David, was a baby girl called Jessica Kondanani.”

Madonna was smitten. Says the singer: “I saw this child from the village with questioning dark eyes and the saddest smile. I thought, ‘She looks just like me’. I told Guy, ‘We must give this child a home, too’.”

Looking first at Madonna and then at Jessica we too see the undeniable and uncanny similarities. Like Jessica, Madonna wears a jumper; like Jessica, Madonna has black eyes, or sunglasses as we in the West call them; and like Jessica Madonna has a song in her heart.

But, as ever, things may not run smoothly. The Mail hears that Jessica is wanted by another couple, doubtless keen to live with an African child who looks so much like an international megastar.

An Australian couple known as the Wilmots want to give Jessica a home. Mrs Wilmot says: “We heard Madonna was interested in a child, who we now hear is Jessica – but we are quite far down the line with our adoption.”

It would appear that the Wilmots have a head start on Madonna. But the singer does have access to mountains of cash and a private jet and can soon catch up.
