Madonna Shares Rare Family Photo of Her Six Children

Stephen Andrew


It's uncommon for Madonna to post a group photo of her children, but in a new Instagram post, the pop music icon has done just that.

In a post shared on Friday, Madonna and her kids Lourdes, 20, Rocco Ritchie, 17, David Banda and Mercy James both 11, and 4-year-old twin sisters Esther and Stella were photographed at the "Material Girl's" 59th birthday party.

While the photo shows the family smiling and laughing with one another, a report from Page Six earlier this year suggested that Madonna's children were frustrated with her parenting methods.

Specifically, a source close to her ex Guy Ritchie said that their son Rocco got very upset with her while they were on her Rebel Heart tour.

The source said, "Rocco spent most of the second half of 2015 on tour with his mother and got upset about not spending enough time with her. Even by her ruthless standards, Madonna has been particularly driven on the tour, and when Rocco did see her, he felt like she was trying to micromanage his life."

A separate source close to the Ritchie men then added, "When he’s in England, [Rocco] gets to live a low-key life . . . He can go about his business and talk to girls without paparazzi stalking him, as Guy has carved out a pretty private existence for his family. He finds making friendships in New York much more difficult. Over here, everyone [is] trying to score an invitation over to Madonna’s house."
