Famous former couples put children first over festive season

30 DECEMBER 2008
Two high profile former couples have been taking the season's spirit of goodwill to heart this year by coming together for the sake of their young children over Christmas.

While new divorcees Madonna and Guy Ritchie are still ironing out the final details of their lives apart, the pair put their own inevitably painful emotions aside for the sake of their three children.

Clearly wanting to ensure 12-year-old Lourdes, Rocco, eight, and three-year-old David were able to spend time with both parents, the singer and her film director ex made the festive period a family-orientated affair.

Former spouses Jude Law and Sadie Frost, who divorced five years ago but have established an amicable relationship, were also reunited on a seasonal break in Brazil with their children Rafferty, 12, eight-year-old Iris and Rudy, six.

And the Rio de Janeiro beach break gave the children the chance to not only celebrate Christmas with their dad, but also his 36th birthday.
