Madonna Wishes Herself a Happy Father’s Day in Emotional Instagram Post

Madonna wished herself a happy Father's Day as she posted some sweet pictures to celebrate the June 21 festivity.

Page Six reported that to celebrate this year’s Father’s Day event, Madonna shared a series of images of her and her six children with the caption that said,

“Happy Fathers Day to Me and to every parent out there doing their best to Nurture, Guide, Inspire and Teach! #lola #rocco #david #mercyjames #estere #stella.”

While one of the photos showed the singer-songwriter cuddling up to Mercy James, David Banda, and Estere and Stella Mwali, as they rocked matching outfits, another image saw her resting her head on her daughter, Lourdes Leon’s shoulder.

Madonna’s mother was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was pregnant with the hitmaker’s baby sister.

Breaking down her large family, Daily Mail stated that while the Queen of Pop shares Lourdes with her ex, Carlos Leon, she shares Rocco with her ex-husband, Guy Ritchie.

Besides those two biological children, Madonna went on to adopt four children - she adopted David in 2006, Mercy in 2009, and the twins Estere and Stella in 2017.

As regards her Father’s Day post, Vanity Fair recounted that Madonna referred to herself as a #momdad in 2018 when she shared a selfie to Instagram and wrote in the caption:

“Do I look like a Dad here? Wishing myself a Happy Father’s Day!”

The 61-year-old’s determination to be all she can be for her children might stem from the fact that she grew up without her own mother.

According to Biography, Madonna’s mother was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was pregnant with the hitmaker’s baby sister. Due to her condition as a pregnant woman, treatment for the disease was hindered until the baby reached full time.

Unfortunately, the cancer grew too firm, and by December 1963, Madonna’s 30-year-old mother died - the singer was just 5 years old at the time. Fueled by the weakness her mother exhibited in her last days, Madonna made a promise to make her own voice heard.

The “Like a Prayer” crooner quickly became a brilliant student who excelled in her studies as well as in cheerleading and dancing. Madonna released her first solo track, “Everybody,” in 1982, and she has been on the rise ever since.
