Madonna paintballs to celebrate son Rocco's birthday, shares sweet throwback snap

11 AUGUST 2014 Madonna celebrated her son Rocco's 14th birthday on the weekend with a sweet throwback snap of him as a baby.

"Not a baby anymore! OMG where did the time go? Happy Birthday R.R. #livingforlove" the pop superstar captioned the Instagram shot.

Madonna, Rocco, her daughter Lourdes, and adopted children Mercy James, and David Banda, have all been celebrating Rocco's birthday in the South of France.





On Sunday a large group of family and friends, including Madonna's 26-year-old boyfriend Timor Steffens, went paintballing, with Madonna showing her millions of fans a group snap after the game.

"Birthday Shoot out!!!!! No one cheated! #bruisedb**ch #boom" she added to the picture.

The Material Girl singer donned army fatigues for the notoriously painful sport, which the family also undertook last year for Rocco's 13th birthday.




Rocco is Madonna's son from her marriage to British director Guy Ritchie.

Late last week the 55-year-old star began sharing her holiday snaps on the social media site Instagram, including a shot of her with magician David Blaine and U2 frontman Bono.

While on her European travels, Madonna has also been indulging in some typical French cuisine, showing off baguettes and macaroons from the famous luxury French bakery, Ladurée.


As her second child Rocco turns 14, Madonna will also be gearing up to send her eldest child, Lourdes, off to college this September.

Lourdes will follow in her mother's footsteps and enrol as a college freshman at the University of Michigan – just like the queen on pop did almost 40 years ago.

Lourdes, 17, will be studying musical theatre and dance as she works towards her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the Ann Arbor institution. Madonna has made no secret of the fact that she hoped Lourdes would follow her path to UM. "I keep telling her Ann Arbor is an awesome place," the singer told the NFL Network before her Super Bowl performance in 2012.
