The 13-year-old’s Instagram account provides a snapshot into his life, which is filled with travel, parkour and participating in philanthropic projects.
In a shot that Madonna and Rocco both posted to Instagram Tuesday, the two appear to be dancing, with Rocco standing a few inches taller than the Queen of Pop.
“Photobomb much @madonna,” he writes in the caption.
In another photo from Tuesday that shows Madonna in the background, Rocco turns up his collar and tries out some dance moves, adding the comment, “Oh….. My turn up days”
Rocco also posts various action videos of diving, snowboarding and parkour (his Instagram profile says, in part, “Parkour blood!!”), including this one from Bklyn Beast, a parkour facility in New York City, where he completes a back flip and seems pretty surprised by his success.
The caption reads, “First to palm flip at @bklynbeast.”
Rocco also posted pics of himself with his mom and Sean Penn in Haiti, where Penn has served as an ambassador-at-large since early 2012.
Penn invited Madonna to visit Haiti in November, telling the Associated Press they have “maintained a great friendship over the years,” ABC News reports.
“She’s here, she’s seeing, she’s made the effort to come here, and I’m thrilled by that,” Penn said. “She has a unique platform, and wherever she chooses to bring that to, it’s very well.”
Rocco and Madonna visited a Haitian hospital, and posted a picture with some of the staff. Rocco writes in the caption, “Hospitals will make you say, s— I’m lucky.”
