David Banda Age, Ethnicity and Religion
David Banda was born on 2005 September 24, and he is currently 15 years old. He was born in the southeastern African country, in a place called Malawi.
David Banda Family
David’s biological father is Yohane. Banda’s mother died while giving birth to him. So he gave it to the ‘Home Of Hope’ orphanage. He was then adopted by Madonna and her ex-husband, Guy Ritchie, in 2006.
Madonna’s adoption was not an easy process. David’s biological father caused some complications, complicating the legal process.
David’s biological father was hesitant to give his kid up for adoption due to Madonna’s scandalous lifestyle, divorce, and custody of her son.
As the situation has been solved, David is now living a comfortable life with his adoptive parents with all of the luxuries.
David has four younger sisters. Madonna’s first biological child is American singer Lourdes Leon. He has three adopted sisters, Mercy James, and later, Madonna adopted the twins Esther and Stella Mwale.
David also has three brothers, Rocco John Ritchie, an actor, Rafael Ritchie, a musician, and Dingiswayo Banda, from his biological father.
David Banda Adoption Process
David’s mother died while giving birth to him, and his father Yohane abandoned him in the nursing home after her death. The baby was then sent to the ‘Home of Hope’ orphanage in the ‘Mchinji’ region.
A month later, when Madonna visited the orphanage while on tour for one of her charity projects, she saw David for the first time.
Little David wasn’t feeling well and was on the point of death at the time, suffering from pneumonia. Madonna filed for adoption right away because she wanted the baby as soon as possible.
After the basic legalities were completed, the baby was ultimately handed over to Madonna. She gave the kid David Banda Mwale Ciccone Ritchie, which was a combination of his birthplace and Madonna’s then-husband, Guy Ritchie.
Even when Madonna was granted permission to adopt David, she had to work extremely hard to obtain custody of the child. Maddona’s divorce had already been finalized at the time of David’s adoption. Guy Ritchie was fighting for custody of their biological son.
At that time, Yohane appeared out of nowhere and stated that he would withdraw custody because Madonna’s scandalous lifestyle might impact David’s future. He demanded that the superstar singer first settle her other legal troubles.
Madonna had to go through the adoption processes all over again. The legalities went on for a little while longer. Madonna and David later traveled to Malawi to finalize their agreement with Yohane. That was David’s first trip back to his birthplace following his adoption.
