Madonna’s twins tell people that ‘Madame X’ is their mother

The 60-year-old Queen of Pop will release her new album, Madame X – her 14th studio LP to date – next month, and although her older children Lourdes, 22; Rocco, 18; David, 13; and Mercy, 13, aren’t bothered by their mom’s fame, six-year-old Estere and Stelle think it’s “funny” that she’s so well known worldwide.

Speaking to, Madonna said: “The older ones couldn’t care less, and the younger ones, they think it’s funny.

“Today my six-year-old twins said to me, ‘Mom, everyone’s always asking us if Madonna’s our mother. And we tell them, ‘No, Madame X is our mother’.’”

And despite her busy schedule, the Like A Virgin hitmaker always finds time to spend with her children – whether that be at home or at the studio.

She explained: “If I’m in rehearsal, they come to see me. My kids come to see me when I get home, then I go back to work. I usually try my best to have as many meals with them as possible.”

She also likes to have down-to-earth chats with them about the importance of responsibility and how they can help people less fortunate than themselves.

She said recently: “Well, we have many discussions about what they want to be when they grow up, why they’re here, why they were born, why we chose each other – like why did their souls choose me, why did my soul choose them? And we have a lot of discussions about responsibility. Everybody’s here for a purpose, not just to become famous or to get lots of money or to whatever ... to have things. We are here to help one another and to affect change and to make the world a better place. So that’s a message I hope has been ground into their brains.”
