The Like A Prayer hitmaker shares Rocco with husband Guy Ritchie, 49, with the couple later going on to adopt their Malawian son David in 2006. They split two years later.  

Rocco has been living with Guy in London since the director won a nine-month custody battle over Madonna in 2016.

Madonna relocated to Lisbon, Portugal, so that her adopted son David Banda, 12, could attend a prestigious soccer academy in the city.

She is also mother to Lourdes, 21, with Cuban dancer Carlos Leon and has adopted Mercy James, 12, and five-year-old twins Estere and Stella. 

The Desperately Seeking Susan star recently revealed she’s still not afraid to take risk with her life choices.

Speaking of living outside of the U.S, she said: ‘I’ve lived in other places; I lived in London for 10 years. I like to put myself in uncomfortable situations and take risks.’

Madonna confirmed earlier this year that she would be releasing her new album later in 2018.
