Madonna’s Son Turned 13, Celebrated By Wearing Head-To-Toe Gucci


When it comes to birthdays most kids hit 13 and enter the terrible teens praying for as little fanfare as possible because, parents are so embarrassing, right? Also, no 13-year-old wants fashion gifts picked out by their parents, because again, embarrassing. As if they would have any idea what a teen wants to wear.

Unless… in the very unlikely scenario that your mum happens to be a Grammy-winning singer and then it’s probably cool to post about your birthday party on social media and also wear something your mum picked out especially for your special day.

Case in point: Madonna’s adopted son David Banda turned 13 over the weekend and the 60-year-old mother-of-six threw him a pumping birthday bash, which was enjoyed by all the family if the video the Ray Of Light singer posted on her Instagram account is anything to go by (it is).

Madonna also shared a picture of him in his ‘birthday suit’ – a head-to-toe heavily logoed Gucci look complete with Gucci slides and a Gucci backpack – and captioned it “Happy Birthday To My Lucky #13. Rise above all limitations!”

Madonna adopted David in 2006 from an orphanage in Malawi and according to The Daily Mail the mother and son recently took a trip to Malawi to visit his former home.

Since adopting David in 2006 the Vogue singer has adopted a further three children from Malawi, 12-year-old Mercy James and six-year-old twins Estere and Stella. The Queen of Pop also has two children from previous relationships, 21-year-old Lourdes – her daughter from her relationship with dancer Carlos Leon and 18-year-old Rocco Ritchie – a son from her marriage to English director Guy Ritchie.
