Pop diva Madonna praised her biological children Lourdes and Rocco on Oprah Winfrey's show recently for welcoming their adopted brother David into the family home.

According to, Madonna appeared on the show to "set the record straight" about her recent Malawian adoption, and she took time out to heap praise on her kids.

She said: "What's really surprised me is how great my children are with him and how he's transitioned so easily to being in our house. We're all thrilled to have him. As soon as David arrived they (Rocco and Lourdes) just embraced him and that's the amazing thing about children; they don't ask questions.

"They've never once said, 'What is he doing here?' or mentioned the difference in his skin colour or questioned his presence in our life, and that is an amazing lesson that children do teach us."

Madonna showed off new family photos, featuring the 13-month-old Malawian orphan, on the show, and explained the African tot is still not fully recovered from a bout of pneumonia that almost killed him.
