Madonna threw a raging backyard 15th birthday party for her son David Banda recently. The 62-year-old pop icon adopted Banda when he was just 13 months old after meeting him in 2006 at an orphanage in Malawi that she had helped fund, and it’s clear their bond has only grown stronger over the years.
In a clip from the party that Madonna posted to Instagram on Monday (Sept. 28), the singer and Banda share a tender moment, with David giving Mom a big smooch and the pair explaining the origin of the teen’s birth name, which he said means “speaks the truth.” “Do you think you’ll be able to live up to that?” Madonna asks him. “Definitely, I’m currently living up to it. I love you. That’s the truth right there,” he says, kissing his mom on her forehead.
The backyard party footage includes Banda doing a goofy dance to the superstar’s 1984 hit “Like a Virgin,” and fellow adopted siblings twins Estere and Stelle crooning French singer Lorie’s 2001 tune “I Love You.” There was, of course, plenty of line dancing and a healthy round of “Teach Me How to Dougie” starring another one of Madonna’s adopted daughters, Mercy James, amid the partygoers doing the “Cha Cha Slide.”
And, shocker, Banda took some serious swings with a baseball bat at a Donald Trump pinata, eventually kicking it to pieces to let the little kids get at the candy.
