Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have selected Bono to be Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline’s godfather.
After giving birth two weeks ago, Angelina, 33, and Brad, 44, spent a week bonding with their new bundles of joy at Bono’s home in the South of France.
Sources say that a thrilled Bono, 48, accepted the offer immediately.
A pal of Angelina and Brad revealed: “Brad and Angie think the world of Bono. 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.”
Reportedly, the couple are planning a christening ceremony to welcome Bono into the extended family. But they have not yet decided if he will be sharing his duties with a godmother.
Angelina has spoken about asking her ex-lesbian lover Jenny Shimzu, but that has yet to be given the nod by Brad.
Brad is already a godfather to The Edge’s daughter Hollie, 24.
