Madonna celebrates son’s 17th birthday with throwback picture

Madonna has wished her second eldest child Rocco Ritchie a happy birthday as he turned 17.

The pop star marked the special occasion by posting a sweet throwback picture of her son on Instagram as a toddler.

She wrote: 'Happy Birthday to my Beautiful Boy! You are my Son-Shine! 17 years went by too fast!'


A second picture shared with her 9.8 million followers on the social networking site showed Rocco - whose father is director Guy Ritchie - doing work for the singer’s charitable organisation Raising Malawi.

She wrote: 'So Proud of you Rocco!!'

Rocco was born on August 11 2000, a few months before Madonna and Ritchie married. They divorced in 2008.

Last year, they were locked in a bitter custody dispute over Rocco, who remained in London with his father after visiting the UK on Madonna’s world tour.
