If you scroll through Madonna’s Instagram pictures, she looks and acts surprisingly youthful for someone who just celebrated her 63rd birthday, but the news here is not her birthday. Sure, it’s news, but the real news is who celebrated her birthday with her.

It’s not uncommon to celebrate a birthday with family. Most of us probably have birthday parties that include our significant others and children. It’s the same for Madonna.

The singer spent her birthday in Italy where she licked gelato along with her boyfriend by her side. Here’s the real news. Madonna has a 27-year-old boyfriend, and they’ve already been dating for 2 years. That means that they started dating when he was just 25. That’s quite an age difference, but as the saying goes, age is just a number.

Ahlamalik Williams first met Madonna when he was hired as one of her dancers. The rest, as they say, is history. The couple looks perfectly cozy together, and word has it that he gets along really well with Madonna’s 6 children. The pair has even been spotted attending her son’s soccer game together in Los Angeles.

In honor of her birthday, Madonna posted the following series of pictures on Instagram.

Besides her boyfriend, Madonna’s children 24-year-old Lourdes Leon, 21-year-old Ritchie, 15-year-old David Banda, 8-year-old Estere and 8-year-old Stelle Ciccone all celebrated their mom’s birthday with her.

Williams’ family seems to approve of his relationship with Madonna. In 2019, his dad, Drue Williams, told TMZ, “Love has no age,. My son is livin’ la vida loca, and I’m just happy for him.”

Williams is from Sacramento, California. Besides being a dancer, he is also a professional choreographer. Before being hired as a backup dancer for Madonna, he performed for shows including Cirque du Soleil.

Did you know that Madonna was dating someone so much younger than her? How long do you think the relationship will last?
