According to PEOPLE she took her six children Lourdes Leon, 24, Rocco Ritchie, 20, David Banda 15, Mercy James 15 as well as the eight-year-old twins — Stella and Estere Ciccone to his vineyard in Michigan for a happy and cozy family celebration.

The recently turned 62-year singer said that her father was a survivor who grew up as an Italian immigrant in the US. He had lived through several traumas and worked hard to get everything that he had. She also said that he taught her the importance of hard work and how to earn one’s one living. She thanked him and said that it was very special that she and her children celebrated his 90th birthday in his vineyard.
Earlier, she had posted another Instagram video with her dad. In this video he was leading the prayers backstage before a performance. After the solemn words, Madonna apologized to her dad saying that she would now curse and let the words flow…vintage Madonna style.
