Madonna has been allowed to adopt a second child from Malawi after a legal battle.
The star was originally stopped from adopting four year old orphan Mercy in April because she is not a resident in the country.
Now the High Court in the African country has ruled that Madonna can take the child- whose real name is Chifundo James- into her family.
Allowing the adoption a judge said the star’s charity work should be taken into account in making the decision.
The 50 year old singer adopted baby David Banda from Malawi with her ex-husband Guy Ritchie in 2006.
She also has two biological children- Lourdes and Rocco.
