Bono's newest role: Godfather?
(Ali Hewson and Husband Bono)
Put this in the who knows if this is true file, but cool if it was. Rumor has it that Angelina Jolie and her baby daddy Brad Pitt have asked, Bono of U2 to be the godfather of their newest additions, Vivienne and Knox. Bono is already the godfather to The Edge’s daughter Hollie who is 24.
“They have been friends for years. Brad is a massive U2 fan and told Bono how much he admired him when they were introduced at a party a few years back. Since then, they’ve become very close, which Brad is thrilled about. Angelina is inspired by Bono’s humanitarian work and gets on with his wife Ali Hewson. Ali’s given Angelina some clothes from her ethical clothing range Edun.”
The Jolie Pitts also stayed at Bono’s home in France for a while this summer. So it seems they’re friendly. But, I was wondering, don’t you have to have some sort of christening to have a godfather? I mean, I didn’t think that either Brad or Angelina were particularly religious. I guess that’s what having kids will do for you, traditions abound!
