Children’s French makes Madonna feel left out

LONDON: Madonna has difficulty understanding her own children — because they speak in French all the time. Lourdes — Madonna’s daughter by personal trainer Carlos Leon — and son Rocco, through marriage to British director Guy Ritchie, attend London’s exclusive Lycee Francais School where they are taught the language, reports celebrity portal Femalefirst.

“Rocco is certainly picking up a lot of French. He speaks it all the time at home because Lourdes is fluent. They talk to each other in French all day, chatting away non-stop,” said Guy Ritchie’s father, John Ritchie. “It’s very funny. Neither Guy nor Madonna speak a word of the language so they cannot understand anything.” The website said that although the pop diva was pleased her children were becoming bilingual, she felt a bit left out of their conversations. — HNS
