Queen of pop Madonna wants to adopt an Indian child. The 49-year-old music diva gave up on her attempts to adopt a little girl in Africa after getting frustrated with red tape. But since her New Year holiday in India, she has her heart set on an Indian tot, reports The Sun. Husband Guy Ritchie, 39, is said to have agreed to the plan, although he was hesitant initially.

The couple took their kids Lourdes, 11, Rocco, seven, and adopted Malawian son David, two, to India in January. They met Bollywood choreographer Sandip Soparrkar — who has also adopted a baby. Sandip said: “We spoke about how there are so many children in India who need homes.” A source said: “Madonna was very taken with Sandip. He told her there were orphans who would melt her heart. Guy was against the idea, but when she wants something, she gets it.”

The two-year bid to adopt David was said to be “very stressful”. “Guy thought Madonna was mad to want to go through it all again,” the source said. “But they talked and talked and decided adopting a baby from India would be easier.”
