Madonna has praised her children as her "greatest accomplishment" The 58 year-old singer, who has 20 year-old daughter Lourdes, 16 year-old son Rocco and adopted children David and Mercy, both 11, and four-year-old twins Esther and Stella, is a chart-topping pop megastar.

But the blonde beauty has said being a mother is the one thing she is proud of above all else, as she took to Instagram yesterday to wish a happy Mother's Day to her own late mother.

Posting a photo of herself as a baby with her mother, the Like A Virgin singer said: "The Greatest Accomplishment of my life is to be the Mother I never knew! Happy Mother's Day to my Mama whom I hope is watching over me and. to all who have nurtured and suffered and experienced the Joy and sacrifice of Motherhood!"

The Like A Prayer hitmaker also posted photos of each of her children, praising them for being her "love" and her "joy".

She captioned the snaps: "My Love!

"My Champion!

"My Joy!

"My Light! This Smile. Is everything!! (sic)"

The posts come just three months after Madonna adopted Esther and Stella into her brood, just two weeks after she filed the paperwork in late January.
