Madonna Dunks Son Rocco on Ellen DeGeneres' Show

24 Oct 2012

Madonna chose to put her son Rocco in a dunk tank for charity on the Ellen DeGeneres show, raising $10,000 for breast cancer awareness

Madonna let her son be dunked in water on TV. The Turn Up The Radio hitmaker appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to raise awareness of cancer with her son Rocco - whose dad is her ex-husband Guy Ritchie - but the 12-year-old boy didn't know he would be taking part in a stunt for the audience.

When asked by the host who she wanted to dunk in the 'splash tank' she immediately responded: ''I don't have to think about it. My son is here and I want him in that tank.''

The youngster was covered in a few gallons of water but the prank certainly paid off, as it was done to raise $10,000 for breast cancer awareness.

Despite Madonna giving her son the opportunity to dance on stage and DJ during her MDNA tour, he revealed to Ellen his pop star mother is actually a strict parent.

Rocco said: ''She's a good mother. Yes. That's all I have to say. She's very strict but in a good way.''
