Madonna, who is famous for her great pop music, has undergone so many changes over her career, but one of her most definitive changes was having children, and she is now a mother of six.

The number of children that pop queen Madonna is known to have, raised questions among many of her fans because there are few pictures of them together.

The 61-year-old singer has had quite a busy career, and that appeared to be her primary focus before deciding to have kids. After moving to New York City at the age of 20, Madonna proved to be a truly successful singer.

Having picked up glowing accolades for her talent, which now includes seven Grammy Awards, she decided to get married and did so twice. First to Sean Penn from 1985 to 1989, and secondly to Guy Ritchie, from 2000-2008.

Madonna has six children, consisting of two biological children and four adopted children. Her first child is her daughter, Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon, whom she had in 1996 after a relationship with her trainer, Carlos Leon.

The singer shares a son, Rocco, who was born on August 11, 2000, with her second husband, Guy Ritchie. The ex-couple battled for Rocco's custody after their divorce, but he is now an adult and capable of making his own choices.

Madonna's four adopted kids are David Banda, whom she adopted in 2006, Mercy James in 2009, and the twins, Estere and Stella Mwale, who were adopted in 2017.

The pop icon describes Lourdes as being better than she is in the talent department.

Madonna previously spoke about how much she wanted to become a mother, as well as have an incredible career in entertainment.

In 1989, she talked about the kind of mom she would like to be while in a Rolling Stone interview.

She also spoke about her mom, who died of breast cancer when the singer was just six years old and said she would be a different person to her late mom.

Madonna's oldest child, Lourdes, who, like her mom, is into showbiz, started as a model in her teenage years, and is also a talented singer, dancer, and actress. Madonna is very close to Lourdes.

The pop icon also rates her highly, describing Lourdes as being better than she is in the talent department. Madonna's son Rocco is one person the singer has an absolute love for.

Madonna has a song, "La Vie en Rose," dedicated to Rocco, who was arrested in 2016 for being in possession of marijuana. Her first adopted child, David Banda, is a soccer player.

This means she has to travel with him to see his games. She once said she wished David was a singer instead because it would have been much more comfortable for her to deal with. She also joked that she only watched soccer when David was playing.

Madonna adopted Mercy in 2009, but the adoption process wasn't entirely smooth, with the singer having to go through a Supreme Court hearing in Malawi before being allowed to take the teenager as her child.

Madonna's adopted twins, Estere and Stella are frequently seen on her social media, and quite a bunch, who always entertain fans with their antics.

Asides from being a successful singer, Madonna is also successful in the movie scene, having starred in about 22 films. She is also a Golden Globe Winner, bagging the Best Actress Award, in 1997, for her role in "Evita."

The pop icon is regarded as the best selling Rock Artist of the 20th century by the Recording Industry Association of America and has sold 63 Million certified albums. The title of a wonderful mother should also be added to that long list of accolades.
