Wrong Number For Madonna, Right School For Son?

Pop superstar Madonna may have found a British school for her baby son Rocco when he is a bit older – by dialing a wrong number.

Madonna intended to ring the exclusive Cheltenham Ladies College in western England to talk about enrolling her four-year-old daughter Lourdes, but was accidentally put through to the similarly named Cheltenham College, newspapers reported on Tuesday.

School porter Roger Northwood, who took the call, managed to persuade the singer that the private 600-pupil mixed college could suit eight-month-old Rocco when he is 10 years older.

“Rocco’s obviously a bit young but Madonna is coming for a look round,” Cheltenham College spokesman Nicholas Lowton was quoted as saying.

Rocco’s father is British film director Guy Ritchie, who wed Madonna in Scotland last December. Lourdes is the singer’s daughter by her former fitness trainer Carlos Leon.

Madonna will kick off a world tour in Barcelona next month. The tour, which will take in 19 cities, is the singer’s first live roadshow since 1993.
