London, Dec 31 (ANI): Pop diva Madonna is reportedly contemplating adopting a girl from Cambodia.

Sources have revealed that the 49-year-old singer and her husband Guy Ritchie have sent aides to hunt the Asian country for a new daughter.

Madonnas decision to adopt a Cambodian girl is said to be inspired by Angelina Jolie, who adopted six-year-old Maddox from the poor country in 2002.

A source close to the couple has revealed that the singer originally wanted to adopt a girl child from Malawi, but later changed her decision because of difficult adoption procedures there.

Malawi is bound up in red tape and she hopes that Cambodia will be easier, the Sun quoted the source as saying.

Madonna had to face a lot of difficulties in Malawi during the adoption of two-year-old David Banda. The adoption has not formalised as yet.

Madonnas latest adoption decision came after a social worker named Simon Chisale appreciated her for being a model mother to David.

Chisale believes that the child has bonded well with the Ritchies, and that it will not be in the best interest of David to be taken away from his new life. (ANI)
