"Jude and Sadie have been getting on fantastically in the past six months. When her business, Frost French, went bust, Jude offered his support in any way. He decided to help her buy somewhere in Hampshire, in the countryside, a real family place. They plan to invest together and give their children a truly loving home," the Mirror quoted a source as saying.
"They have always tried to stay on good terms for the sake of their kids and Christmas is important to both of them. So this year they're splashing out on a luxury break to Brazil to spend the festive break as a family," the source added.
Jude, 35, and Sadie, 43, who divorced five years ago, have added fire to the reconciliation claims after they were snapped looking close at the Royal Opera House on Monday. "They've become increasingly touchy-feely of late and pals are desperately hoping a romantic reunion is on the cards," a source said.
"Sadie's on-off boyfriend Christian Marr is off the scene at the moment, so the way is paved for Jude," the source added.
