Madonna Facts As She Turns 60

Music artist, actress, businesswoman, Madonna celebrates her 60th birthday today on August 16th. She was born in Bay City, Michigan in 1958. Her parents Madonna Louise and Silvio Anthony Ciccone were from Rochester MI and were visiting with her mother’s parents in Bay City. Pregnant Madonna’s mother ended up delivering that day baby Madonna at the hospital just a few blocks away. However, today marks the date a famous star was born: Madonna Louise Ciccone.

Her dad later opened up a winery in Suttons Bay, MI called “Ciccone Vineyard and Winery.”
