Madonna to talk about adoption

From the Associated Press

Oprah Winfrey was scheduled to tape an interview with Madonna today about the pop singer’s planned adoption of a 13-month-old boy from the African country of Malawi.

The interview is slated to air Wednesday on Winfrey’s talk show, a spokeswoman for Harpo Productions Inc. said Monday.

It will be Madonna’s first TV interview about the adoption.

The child, David Banda, was taken to London last week after Malawi’s High Court granted Madonna and Ritchie an interim adoption order.


Madonna, 48, has said she acted according to the law, but the toddler’s father, Yohane Banda, said Sunday that he didn’t realize he was signing away custody of his motherless son “for good.”

Madonna has two children -- daughter Lourdes, 9, and son Rocco, 6.
