Fans were quick to comment on the snapshots, with many remarking on just how grown up Rocco looked, while others were torn over just who Rocco looked most alike. "Time has gone so fast!" one wrote, while another wrote: "Rocco is so much like you." A third added: "Rocco looks just like his dad!" "It's Guy Richie," another agreed.

As well as Rocco, Madonna is mom to daughter Lourdes Leon, who she shares with ex-boyfriend Carlos Leon.

Madonna has homes around the world but primarily resides in Lisbon, Portugal, so that David can pursue his dreams of becoming a professional footballer.

While Rocco tends to keep a lower profile from his siblings, Madonna occasionally shares photos with all her children on social media.

The star opened up about motherhood in a rare interview with People in 2017. She said: "Lola has a different father than Rocco, and I have four adopted kids, so there's a lot of outside influences. I'm trying to make sure I impart the same wisdom and love to everyone."

She added: "I had this funny notion that when your children get older, they learn to take care of themselves and it gets easier. But actually, the older they get, the more challenging it gets — because now they're becoming adults, and they really need guidance."
