The Guardian said Madonna's new children are 4-year-olds Stella and Esther.

United States pop superstar Madonna felt "compelled" to adopt four-year-old twin girls from an orphanage in Malawi after hearing of their plight through her charity work, court papers revealed Wednesday.

"Thank you also to my friends, family and my very large team for all your support and Love".

Pop star Madonna debuted two new daughters on social media on Wednesday, saying she had completed her adoption of the twins from Malawi and was "overjoyed" to bring them into her family.

Madonna has a long history of doing charitable work in Malawi as she founded the Raising Malawi charity back in 2006.

"3 Beauties! Lola spends time with twins, Stella and Esther at Home of Hope Orphanage: ❤️", Madonna captioned a July 2016 pic of her daughter Lourdes "Lola" Leon, 20, cuddling two identical small girls.

"In fact, at the time we were granting her the permission she was in the courtroom with her lawyers".

The Trump administration has argued Dodd-Frank has not achieved its objective and is an example of government over-reach. It will not take effect immediately and awaits Senate confirmation of Trump's Treasury Secretary nominee Steve Mnuchin.

The twins' birth father was present with Madonna at the hearing this week and witnessed Justice Fiona Mwale's approval of the adoption. A Malawian government official is expected to travel with the 58-year-old singer to the U.S.to make sure she is able to provide a suitable home for Stella and Esther.

'The rumours of an adoption process are untrue, ' she said in a statement.

Prior to adopting the little girls, Madonna was already mother to four children: Lourdes, Rocco, 16, David Banda, 11, and Mercy James, 11.

The Grammy victor is also tied to the country through the establishment of her non-profit Raising Malawi in 2006, which provides health and education programs for girls.

Pop star Madonna, shown here visiting with Malawian children in the Kasungu District, Central Malawi on November 30, 2014, is adopting from the country for the fourth time.

She set up a charity called Raising Malawi in 2006, and has been a regular visitor to the country, taking David and Mercy previous year when she visited a children's hospital surgical unit funded by the charity.
