CHRISTMAS can be tricky for families. Ask MADONNA.

She has agreed to ex-hubby GUY RITCHIE’s request for her to return to
Britain for the festive season so he can see the kids.

But I can reveal there is a condition — she wants American baseball star ALEX
to join her here.

Madge, in Brazil for her Sticky & Sweet tour, will jet into London on
December 23 with kids Rocco, David Banda and Lourdes.

But Alex should not be far away. She has offered to fly the New York Yankees
slugger first-class to London then put him in a top hotel.

A source says: She wants the kids to be with their parents but wants time
with A-Rod too.

He trousers 18million a year and my source says: She knows he lives large
and that he loves the fact she’s his equal for earning power. She wants to
treat him.

Not that there is as much money in the pot.

Yesterday Madge’s spokesman confirmed she’d handed Guy 50million in cash and
property in their divorce deal.

Madge, who still has to reach agreement with Guy over custody of the kids, had
planned Christmas in New York, as I’m sure A-Rod had.

But Guy changed that. My source says: The kids are the biggest thing and
she’ll plan for them but still have a bit of the Christmas she wanted

Madge and A-Rod spend more and more time together.

He split with wife Cynthia this summer after he was linked to the singer.

He spent Thanksgiving with his ex and their two young girls last month.

But when Madge played Miami recently he sat in the front row as she serenaded
him with You Must Love Me.

Now Christmas chez Madge sure looks interesting. No need for EastEnders.
