Highlight Story

Pop superstar Madonna's family speaks to adopted baby David Banda in three languages.

Madonna and her husband Guy Ritchie speak to him in English, her daughter Lourdes speaks to him in French and the family have classes in the Malawian tongue Chichewa, sun.co.uk reports. As a result, he has started talking in a strange combination of the three, answering "Oui, oiu" to most things.

The couple use the few Chichewa words they know which includes mummy, daddy and hello and occasionally Madonna sings a Chichewa lullaby she knows as Ritchie plays a guitar piece to it.

A source said: "David constantly wants his mum to hold him, asks for kisses, smiles and seems extremely attached to Madonna. She is completely ga ga over him."
