Madonna has taken to Instagram to share a few snaps of her family’s Thanksgiving celebrations, but it’s the rare glimpse at her much younger partner that fans are truly giving thanks for.

The superstar and her boyfriend Ahlamalik Williams got very cosy in the series of snaps.

In the first photo, Madonna perched on Ahlamalik’s lap staring slightly off-camera as she grasped his hands in both of hers.

The mum of six was clad in a skin-tight black silk gown with a matching fascinator, her ever-changing locks a brilliant pink for the holidays.

Ahlamalik sported a white tee shirt and several gold chains, one of the superstar’s dogs perched on his lap.

In another snap, a film shot of the duo, Madonna cuddles up to Ahlamalik, pulling him in for a close hug in front of a fireplace.

The 26-year-old towers over the petit 62-year-old, smiling for the camera, the two photos shared to Instagram to the delight of thousands of fans who liked and commented on the post.

At 26 years old Ahlamalik is just two years older than Madonna’s oldest child Lourdes, and the pair initially raised some eyebrows when photos of them together started circling.

Their 36-year age gap may seem staggering to many, but according to Ahlamalik’s father, the pair are happy, healthy and not hurting anyone.

“Love has no age,” Mr Williams told TMZ in 2019. “My son is livin’ la Vida Loca, and I’m just happy for him.”


Ahlamalik Williams was initially one of Madonna’s back up dancers, first meeting the popstar in 2015 when he auditioned for her Rebel Heart Tour. He was reportedly specifically chosen by Madonna who later struck up a romance with the dancer.

The pair have never confirmed their romance but have appeared in several Instagram photos and videos together.

Madonna’s devil-may-care approach to ageing

Madonna famously lets no one dictate what is and is not appropriate for her age, regularly, and fabulously, flaunting social norms with her style of dress, gruelling touring schedule and regular younger boyfriends.

The star has dated two much younger men since divorcing Guy Ritchie in 2008 Jesus Luz then Brahim Zaibat, both 29 years her junior.

She is also not shy of sharing a number of racy snaps with her adoring fans.

In July, the legendary singer posed in a mirror selfie, wearing nothing but a pair of black underwear and a black hat.

“Everyone has a crutch,” she captioned the photo, which showed her holding a crutch underneath her right armpit.
