Madonna and family have much to celebrate. She signed a $100 million ten year deal with Live Nation meaning she’ll still be poppin’ and rockin’ until she’s almost sixty, she worked with Pip and Timbaland on a new album set to drop this Spring, and now comes news that her much contested adoption of baby David Banda from Malawi will likely be confirmed ahead of time after an excellent review from a social worker assigned to assess how David is adjusting to his new family – beautifully.

Feeling jubilant, Madge reportedly set off with Guy and the kids to India forking out an estimated US $200K to fly via private jet to a palace in India where they are ushering in the new year. The Family Madge is said to be staying at Jaipur’s Ummed Bhavan Palace hotel where Madonna has been seen frolicking with her children and going for rides on horseback.

She is also apparently considering adopting another baby from Cambodia – a girl this time to round out nicely. Will keep you posted. And hopefully she doesn’t fall off that horse and hurt herself again…
