Madonna's Son David Reunites With His Biological Father

As you all already know, Madonna is currently in Malawi hoping to adopt another child. Hours after she appeared at a Malawian court, Madonna took her adopted son David to meet his biological father Yohane Banda.

Yohane Banda spent about three hours with his son and Madonna. David didn't understand that Yohane was his father and instead referred to Guy Ritchie as his Dad.

Yohane later gave an interview to the Daily Mail talking about the reunion and what him and his biological son talked about. Here are some highlights from the interview:

On the first few moments he spent with his son:

"It's amazing how David has grown; I can't believe he is the same small and sickly baby we left at Home of Hope. He seems to be a polite boy for he asked if he could sit on my lap. Then he started playing with my nose; I don't know why.

On what him and David talked about:

"He is quite chatty and intelligent. He asked me lots of questions about lots of things. He asked me whether I ride horses. I told him horses are for the rich and he asked me why I am poor. He told me his mum likes riding horses and that he too rides horses. The he told me a story when one day he and his brother, Rocco, rode horses and fell. He told me his mum spanked him because they are not supposed to ride horses on their own."

On explaining to David what he does for a living:

"He told me his mum plays music and asked me what I do for life,' he said. I told him I was a farmer. He asked what a farmer does and I explained to him that we use hoes to till the land. He told me his daddy, Mr. Ritchie, took him to a farm but it had a tractor. I told him in Africa we use hoes."

His feelings on Madonna and Guy's divorce:

"He seems to like his daddy, Mr. Ritchie, so much that I was a little sad Madonna broke up with him. I would have loved it if they sorted out whatever problems they had instead of divorcing because divorce is bad for kids...I was very happy to meet David again. He reminds me of the two sons I lost in infancy."

On how he's glad he gave his son to the Madonna:
'I was very happy to meet David again. He reminds me of the two sons I lost in infancy. I sometimes shudder to think that David could also have met the same fate had Madonna not adopted him. I am really grateful to her for saving David from possible early death."
