MADONNA GETS CUSTODY OF AFRICAN CHILD

Amist rumors of adoption, Madonna and her husband Guy Ritchie officially took custody of a motherless 1-year-old boy named David from Malawi, Africa on Thursday after filing adoption papers and receiving a judge's interim approval. While Madonna has not commented, a court registrar said Judge Andrew Nyirenda "has just given out an interim order" allowing Madonna to take the boy home. David's father was pleased with the boy's adoption, saying, "They are a lovely couple. She asked me many questions. She and her husband seem happy with David. I am happy for him. Madonna promised me that as the child grows she will bring him back to visit."
