Ethnicity And Nationality of Stelle Ciccone

Ciccone, who was born in Malawi, is of American nationality and African heritage.

Stelle was adopted by Madonna. At the age of four,

At the beginning of 2017, the famous singer adopted Stelle and her twin sister from Malawi. Her adoption was finalized on February 8, 2017. Madonna moved to New York with both of them within hours after reaching an arrangement with the court.

The adoption was supposed to become permanent after 12 months, according to the court’s approval. Adam, the biological father of twins, first became aware of the pop star’s interest in his daughters in May 2016.

Adam Mwale had no idea his twin daughters had been adopted permanently.

Mr. Adam stated in an interview with the Daily Mail that he expected his girls to return to his village after receiving a solid education. And he thought their migration to the United States was only temporary. He stated,

“I was told from the beginning that Esther and Stella were going to a rich woman’s home abroad, where she would educate them and then return them to me to live with me and support the rest of my family.”

Kayembe, a farmer from a rural area, added,

“You’re saying the adoption is permanent now. That cannot be true, and I do not wish for it to be true. I am their father, and I will always be so.”

Furthermore, Mwale alleged that while everyone first told him that Madonna would foster his twins, no one hinted that Stella and her sister would be taken away from him permanently.

Mwale further told the source that a guy assigned as the court guardian of the kids also tricked him informing the judge that he moved on to marry a new woman following the demise of his first wife Patricia without making any plans for his children.

Mwale, on the other hand, stated that this was far from the case. He stated,

“After Patricia died, I was the one who took the girls to the orphanage. We had been happily married for a long time.”

“We had a lovely family life,” Mwale said in the end.

Second Marriage of Stelle Ciccone’s Father

After Patricia’s death, Stelle’s father, Adam Mwale, remarried; however, the name of his second wife has not yet been made public. According to sources, the pair is still in a good married connection.

In 2022, the man with no formal schooling is a farmer in his hometown of Kayembe.

Stelle and Estere are ardent supporters of Malawi Rising.

Despite their young age, Stelle and her twin sister strongly desire to help others. They donate to Raising Malawi, a non-profit organization that provides orphans and vulnerable children in Malawi with quality health care, education, and other assistance. Madonna and Michael Berg created the nonprofit foundation in 2006.

In Malawi, however, the singer established the Mercy James Institute for Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care, a children’s hospital.
