Madonna’s family needs to start signing non-disclosure forms-her father Tony Ciccone has said that the music icon is pregnant again. Not surprisingly, Madonna’s publicity machine is denying the story. “It’s completely not true,” a rep from Liz Rosenberg Public Relations revealed. However, during an interview with the U.K. tabloid The People, Mr. Ciccone let slip, “We are very excited that she is expecting again. It is always exciting when your children have children.”
However, the 70-year-old father of the “Material Mom” also commented, “I don’t know if Madonna’s child is a boy or a girl yet, we just want it to be healthy.” Apparently realizing he’d already said too much, Mr. Ciccone refused to give any more details: “It’s an area I can’t really talk about, we just want it (to) be healthy. Look, this is stuff I can’t go into. Of course it’s an exciting time, we were delighted when we heard, but I can’t talk about it.”
Madonna-who recently made her West End stage debut to some scathing reviews-already has two children: 5-year-old Lourdes (born October 14, 1996), whom the singer had with her former trainer Carlos Leon; and 18-month-old Rocco (born August 11, 2000), her first child with her husband, British filmmaker Guy Ritchie (Snatch). Madonna and Ritchie married on December 22, 2000.
