(Newser) – Madonna agreed to her ex-hubby’s request that she bring the kids to Britain for Christmas—as long as Alex Rodriguez can come along, the Sun reports. Madge offered the Yankees star first-class airfare and a room in a top hotel in London because “she wants to treat him,” a source said. “She wants the kids to be with their parents but wants time with A-Rod, too.”

Madonna had originally planned Christmas in New York, but “the kids are the biggest thing,” the source said. “She’ll plan for them but still have a bit of the Christmas she wanted.”
