Madonna shares rare photo of her father Silvio as she enjoys family time on the beach

Sunday was a family day for Madonna. The queen of pop shared some sweet snapshots on Instagram after hitting their beach with her two teenage children, Lourdes Leon and Rocco Ritchie, and her own father Silvio Ciccone, at the weekend.

One photograph shows the singer, 55, kneeling down in the sand next to Lourdes, 17, as mother and daughter gaze out to sea. "Sunday Chillaxing……. #livingforlove," she wrote alongside the picture.

"Papa Don't Preach! 2 O.G's on the beach," the star wrote alongside.

She followed it up with a second clip of David playing the guitar and singing Clocks by Coldplay.

"When he ruled the world!" his proud mum wrote.
