Madonna Wins Custody Battle To Bring Kids To NYC
But he added: “I will make sure they are proud of their English roots.”
Madge, 50, is understood to have won a temporary residency battle to shift the kids’ main home from London to the US, following the pair’s divorce in November.
She argued it was her right as a mum to have them with her — especially as the boys’ sister Lourdes, 12, wants to be near her natural father in New York.
The pal of film director Guy — who is working on a Sherlock Holmes movie and also owns a pub in Mayfair — said: “Lourdes was always going to stay with her mum. But keeping Rocco and David close to him in London was the only thing Guy really wanted from the divorce.
“He thought he had a real chance, especially as their school is here. He desperately loves those boys and is a devoted dad.”
Madonna — who yesterday announced an Eastern European tour with tickets up to £175 — is set to get the US residency order made permanent in two weeks.
The pal added: “Guy will still see his sons all the time. He said, ‘It doesn’t matter where they live — they will always have the hearts and souls of Englishmen.’
“Football, appreciating the countryside, good humour and decent music — Guy’s determined these symbols of Britishness will forever be part of their lives.”
