Inspired by the beautiful room that Gwyneth Paltrow created for her daughter Apple, Madonna asked the actress to lend a hand in decorating the most glamorous “princess” room for Mercy, The Sun reports.
The singer is currently in the process of renovating her New York townhouse and has vast plans for decorating her newest child’s bedroom including “porcelain dolls, antique teddy bears, a library of leather-bound children’s books and ancient maps of Africa to adorn the walls.”
A source revealed: “As well as all the items inside, she’s also commissioned a mini Georgian-style treehouse for Mercy and David in her garden [and] has been filling Mercy’s wardrobe at the same time. She’s stocked up on cashmere sweaters, dresses and silk tunics and has had a new charm bracelet made for her. It features a miniature bell, a Statue of Liberty, a map of Africa and lockets with photos of everyone in her new family.”
It looks as though Lourdes, Madonna’s oldest child is also excited about her new sister: “She’s really looking forward to having a little girl in the house she can care for. She’s bought piles of leggings, hipster T-shirts, tutus and trainers for the new arrival.”
Madonna was finally given permission to adopt 4-year-old Mercy from Malawi last week after months of negotiations. The little girl will join siblings Lourdes, 12, Rocco, 8, and David, 3. Her son David Banda was also adopted from Malawi in 2006.

Things are looking up for Liv Tyler. After a difficult year that saw the break-up of her almost 5-year marriage to musician Roy Langdon, the 31-year-old actress talks to The Daily Telegraph about moving past the “heartbreaking” split, and about the new life she shares with her son Milo, 4.
Earlier this year Liv opened up to Wonderland magazine about dealing with the fallout of her divorce: “I see a lot of people run away from it, or they act like they don’t care. But if you don’t let yourself mourn, it’s going to come back and bite you on the ass. You can’t run away from yourself: you kind of have to just deal with it.”
Though she’s now back to work – she’s set to star in a new indie romantic comedy titled The Romantics – Liv describes herself as something of a homebody, saying, “Especially when I got married and I had Milo, I wanted to nest and have a family in a way that I’d always dreamt of doing.”
Liv details a typical morning for her and Milo in her new life as a single mom:
“Milo wakes up every morning at 5.30 or 6 – ping! – and so the hardest thing is the lack of sleep. I try and go to bed before 10 or 11pm, but it’s so hard. If I don’t get more than six hours of sleep for a few days in a row I start to really lose it and just feel so panicked and stressed. When people ask me, ‘What is the first thing you do in the morning? What’s your routine?’ I say, ‘Er, I get up. I make breakfast. I beg Milo to try and snooze for 30 more minutes!’ Of course when they’re up, they’re up.”

Kelis has just filed her financial records with the court in order to get support and baby expenses from her estranged husband Nas.
TMZ.com reports that the singer, who hasn’t toured in a year, says that from November 2008 to April 2009 her average income was $21,616 a month. She claims that her monthly expenses are $80,831, spending $14,861 on her mortgage, $3500 will go to a nanny and a whopping $15,000 a month on entertainment, gifts and vacation. She’d also like to do cord blood banking when the baby arrives which would be an additional monthly cost.
Kelis filed for divorce from the rapper when she was seven months pregnant. The couple had recently celebrated their fourth anniversary.
