Madonna is planning to adopt a 'sister' for Malawian baby David Banda, the infant's grandmother has said.

Ahead of the singer's trip to the African country tomorrow, Athnette Mwale claims that charity workers told her and her son Yohane – David's father –Madonna "would return for another child very soon".

Yesterday Madonna's publicist vehemently denied that she was planning to adopt another baby.

"She is overseeing the building of a children's health care centre," said Liz Rosenburg.

But 57-year-old Athnette told the Sun: "I have prayed to God that my boy will have a sister to play with from his own country.

"When the adoption people came to speak to Yohane about David they said Madonna would give him the best life in the world. And they promised that she would find him a sister, another orphan from Malawi."

Madonna has reportedly "set her heart" on adopting a three-year-old girl called Grace after seeing documentary footage of her.

The singer's two children, Lourdes, ten, and Rocco, six, will accompany her on her trip to Africa, which will include an audience with former South African president Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg.
