Stelle and Estere are settling into their new home just fine. Madonna recently shared video footage of her adopted twin girls bowling and playing with their new Barbie dolls.

Estere and Stelle were recorded while singing and holding their dolls in one clip. “What happens when you get your first Barbie Doll,” Madonna asked. “Pikachu is left in the dust,” she exclaimed. Many fans identified with the girls’ happiness with one Instagram follower saying, “That Barbie is awesome.”


What was also awesome was Estere’s bowling skills. The 4-year-old knocked down all of three pins during her first round. “She’s better than me,” one fan noted. Estere, however, didn’t seem as impressed. The preschooler stared at the three standing pins as if she were waiting for those to fall as well.

It’s been several weeks since Madonna adopted Estere and Stelle from Malawi. The ‘Material Girl’ singer went through much scrutiny during the process that included a judge questioning the motivation behind Madonna’s desire to adopt from Malawi for the third time.

“There is no doubt that the petitioner can offer the infants not only the best education money can buy, but also guidance with a high likelihood of ensuring that the two infants grow to be self-sufficient adults,” the judge explained in a court document. However, “In determining her motives, I questioned the petitioner at length about the impact of her decision which could be construed as robbing Malawi of its most precious resource, its children.”

Madonna responded to the inquiry by ensuring the Malawian judge that Stelle and Estere would keep their birth names as she had no desire to force the girls to abandon their culture.

Estere and Stelle joined Madonna’s other kids at home. The twins made the Pop singer a parent for the fifth and sixth time.
