Happy 5th Birthday David Banda Ritchie!

Name: David Banda Mwale Ciccone Ritchie

Date of Birth: September 25, 2005

Parents: Madonna Ciccone & Guy Ritchie

Siblings: Lourdes Maria (10/14/96), Rocco (08/11/00) & Mercy James (01/22/06)


  • Maddonna began the process to adopt David from Malawi on October 10, 2006
  • The adoption was finalized on May 28, 2008
  • Earlier this year Madonna took David back to Malawi where they paid an emotional visit to the boy’s former orphanage

“There is just a lot of bureaucracy and administration and papers that have to be gone through. [David's] adoption was the beginning of the creation of adoption law in Malawi. I’m the template, a role model for the future…I went to Malawi thinking I was going to save children’s lives and make a big difference in their lives, and hopefully I have. The surprise to me was how much they changed me.” – Madonna, on adopting her son from Malawi.
