Madonna has been spotted kissing her 24-year-old toyboy lover on her 53rd birthday.

The singer was snapped snogging and hugging French dancer Brahim Zaibat in the posh Hamptons area of New York state.

As the couple got close, Madonna's kids David and Mercy played in the sand nearby.

The pair started dating last September when he was a dancer at the launch of her clothing range at Macy's in New York.

Speaking of Madonna earlier this year, Zaibat said: "She's an extraordinary artist and world famous, of course, but a woman above all."
