Baby #6 is David Banda Ritchie. David’s actual was in 2005, but his Gotcha/Adoption Day was in 2006.
David’s adoption in October incited national media attention and political debates, including the petitioning of Malawian civil rights activists, who tried to block David’s adoption and are still fighting to have the adoption process ended. Should Madonna, an international pop star and her husband, film director Guy Ritchie,be allowed to take a poverty-stricken African boy and raise him astheir own? Controversy ensued following comments from David’sbiological father, Yohane Banda, who actually broke the story telling the world that his son David was being adopted by the pop phenom, after much speculation and many denials from her PR camp. He later stated that he didn’t know Madonna would keep David with her.

He joins big sister Lourdes Leon, 10, and Rocco Ritchie, 6.
