Madonna has adopted a one-year-old boy in Malawi, according to the child's father.
Last week, Madonna's publicist Liz Rosenberg said, "She's kind of adopting an entire country of children. She is building an orphanage and child care center and is involved in other initiatives geared toward helping children orphaned by AIDS through the Raising Malawi organization. She has not adopted a baby despite reports that she has."
But Yohame Banda, 32, insists Madonna has adopted his son, whose mother Marita died shortly after he was born. He says, "I am the father of David, who has been adopted. I am very, very happy because as you can see there is poverty in this village and I know he will be very well looked after in America. We are told David will be coming back regularly to know his roots."
Madonna's reps have refused to comment on Banda's claim.
