For Madonna, a traditional family just wasn't in the cards. Not that the pop star is complaining. After having Lourdes, now 16, and Rocco, 12, she adopted a son, David, now 7½, in 2008, and the next year, Mercy, 7, from the African nation of Malawi. "I am ecstatic," she said at the time of her daughter's adoption. "My family and I look forward to sharing our lives with her."
