    Madonna and Guy Richie will celebrate Christmas with their children, despite their recent divorce, the Daily Mail reported.

    According to the British newspaper, Madonna will arrive in the U.K. with children Lourdes, Rocco and David on December 23 and stay for Christmas at Guy’s Ashcombe House estate.

    “Madonna and Guy want the best for the kids and so she has decided to come over to the UK so they can be with their father,” a source close to the former couple told the paper. “Guy hasn’t seen the kids for weeks and he is desperate to be with them over the holidays.”

    According to the Mail, the pop singer and “RocknRolla” director Guy still have not come to an arrangement over where their children will live – Madonna reportedly wants them with her in New York, while Guy would prefer son Rocco to attend school in London.

    The kids are currently accompanying Madonna on her “Sticky & Sweet” tour, which is currently in South America.

    Their holiday festivities are said to include a traditional turkey dinner – though Madonna is expected to stick to her strict macrobiotic diet, according to the paper.

    “She will… be eating a different meal as she will only eat fish,” the source continued. “She will also be working out on Christmas Day.’”

    Still, Madonna – who follows the teachings of Kabbalah – is making some Christmas concessions.

    “She has decided to be the bigger person and bring the kids home to Guy,” the source said.

    Madonna has had no shortage of company since the holiday season began. According to the New York Daily News, she spent her Thanksgiving with baseball superstar Alex Rodriguez, who arrived at her place after having an early Thanksgiving dinner with his ex-wife, Cynthia, and their children.
