Mad about Rocco
Ecstatic Madonna enjoyed her first night out after the birth of her new son Rocco – and admitted: “I can’t wait to get home and cuddle him.”
The superstar singer left her month-old tot at home as she joined British lover Guy Ritchie and 600 celebrity pals at a glittering Los Angeles party to launch her new album Music.
Speaking for the first time about becoming a mom to her second child, Madonna said her “beautiful and healthy ” new arrival had made her feel complete – and that his three-year-old sister Lourdes adored him.
She even sporned a silver necklace spelling out “BABY”.
Madonna. 42, said “It’s great being a mum again. Rocco’s changed my life. We’re a family now – I feel complete.”
“It’s hard to be apart from him for a minutes. This is my first night out since the baby was born. I’ve only been here for 45 minutes, but he’s in part of my brain and it’s throbbing.”
“I keep thinking about him and I think I need a few cocktails before I can enjoy myself and let go.”
Madonna who kissed and hugged 33-year-old movie director Guy throughout the bash at L.A.’s Catch One club, went on:
“I always thought you couldn’t tell whether babies are boys or girls when they’re young.”
“But Rocco’s got blond hair and blue eyes just like his dad. He’s so obviously a boy and he even flexes his arms like Guy.”
“It’s hard not to wish their lives away, but I can’t wait until he’s crawling and talking.”
“Rocco’s up to 8 1/2 pounds now and very healthy. He’s really butch and I can’t wait until we get home.”
“It’s a very odd feeling being out on the town again while he’s at home asleep. I need to cuddle him.”
“Lourdes is great with him, although she’s a bit jealous sometimes.”
“But we’ve let her hold him and she seems to adore him. It’s beautiful to see and it completes me.”
“Lourdes loves her little brother and I know she’ll make a great babysitter one day. She seems very grown up next to him and is so affectionate. She’s always kissing him.”
It’s certainly weird to think that Madonna is a mother of two now.
The star denied reports that Rocco – born premature – was unwell.
She admitted it was a difficult birth after she had to be taken into hospital two weeks early.
But she insisted: “He is absolutely fine and really healthy.”
Madonna who is set to hit No.1 this week with her new CD, also spoke of her love for Guy – who jokingly peeled off his top at the bash.
The singer, who was wearing a T-shirt promoting Guy’s gangster film Snatch, said: “He has changed my life and put things into perspective.”
