* As first reported on Oct. 4, Madonna has adopted a baby boy in Malawi.

Government official Kingston Kilembe confirmed Thursday that the pop star and her director husband Guy Ritchie filed adoption papers in Lilongwe High Court for 13-month-old David Banda.

The little boy's mother died shortly after his birth and his father Yohane said he was happy that his son will have a better life.Banda was taken from the village of Mchinji to Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi. The country is one of the poorest in the world and inflicted with disease and hunger.

Nearly 14 per cent of the 12 million people who live there are infected with HIV.Madonna's new son is one of an estimated 1 million orphans in Malawi. While in Africa, the superstar has also visited the site of an orphanage her charity is building in Mphandula, about 30 miles outside Lilongwe.

Madonna's publicist, Liz Rosenberg, had previously denied reports that an adoption was taking place. Later, she stated: "I am unable to make any official statement at this time."
