Is Madonna raising a future Olympian?
Last week the American singer, 58, posted two photos on Instagram picturing her daughter Mercy James, 10, showing off four medals won at a gymnastics competition.
The competition took place on 4 December.
Madonna posted a first picture of her proud daughter with her medals, congratulating her on her victory. ‘Mercy James takes home 4 Medals! 🙋🏾🎉💘🎉🙏🏻🙏🏻🎉🎉🎉💕💕💕💕💕💕😂😁🎉🎉🎉🎉😁,’ she wrote below.
Not long after the first picture went up, Madonna posted a second picture, showing Mercy holding hands with other four fellow gymnasts. The singer commented: ‘Go Mercy James!!! It’s all about team Work! 👍🏾💯🎉💘🎉💘🎉💘🎉💘😂😂💕💕💕’
Madonna adopted Mercy in 2009 from Kondanani Children’s Village in the town of Bvumbwe in Malawi. Mercy was placed in the Children's Village following the death of her teenage mother. Madonna also adopted a boy, David, now 11, in Malawi in 2006. She also has two biological children, Lourdes, 20, and Rocco, 16.
We look forward to learning more about Mercy James’s gymnastics career!
