She’s chosen second child from African country

Madonna is planning to adopt a second orphan from Malawi — a 13-month-old girl called Mercy.

Madge, 49, will file papers in February and collect her new daughter next April.

The star is said to have want a little sister for David Banda, 22 months, ‘to redress the balance’. David’s adoption is likely to be finalised by January.

‘Madonna’s over the moon that she’s been told she can take Mercy,’ a source tells The Sun. ‘She didn’t want another complicated adoption.’

‘Mercy is a beautiful baby girl. She’s so joyful and happy and giggles every time she’s picked up. Madonna calls her her smiling angel.’

Madonna is already mum to Lourdes, 10, and son, Rocco, 7.

Her spokeswoman declined to comment.
