Bono To Be Knox Leon & Vivienne Marcheline's Godfather

Brad Pitt

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.

Below is a pic of The Edge and Hollie.

    THis is precicely why this couple is full of garbage. WHat happened to christening the other 4 children? Are the other 4 children not blessed enough to be christened?

    Hey Analise!! That is a pretty mean comment to leave. A little harsh wouldn’t you say? All I can say, “Angelina is your mom, Brad is your dad, Jon is your grandpa, and Bono is your godfather. When are going to rule the world???

  4. Analise says

    Scary that. Hopefully nothing will ever happen to Brad and Angelina that would have that idiot raise their kids.

    excuse me while I puke.

    pop out babies, have someone take care of them, pop out more, and the rich keep getting richer……… and they don’t

    have a CLUE what’s going on in the real world!

    This crew is off my list for sure!

    There are so many lovely Bible stories for little children, I think they would enjoy them, I remember once when I was about 12, I found a Catholic book of Bible stories I had never heard before and I LOVED them!

    Are Brad and Angelina even religious? They don’t strike me as followers of an organized religion


    They aren’t, and they don’t. They haven’t had any of their other children baptized; why would they baptize the twins? Angelina said in an interview this year that one of the best presents she has received from Brad was a bookshelf with books about all the world’s religions. They plan to let the children learn about all religions and then make their own choice when they grow up whether or not they want to follow any religion.

    I am at a loss to understand why anyone would post a story as stupid as this one. Just because there are some idiotic rumors going around doesn’t mean you have to dignify any of them by posting a thread on it.

    Yeah, just a bunch of junk.

    And I wonder if Brad is really the Edge’s daughter’s god father? I don’t think Brad and the Edge have known each other for 24 years. Don’t kids usually get baptized/christened as babies?

    Total fake story. They spent a week at Bono’s place after she left the hospital??? LIE. There are pics, totally intrusive pics, of them playing in thier yard on Saturday, the day after she left the hospital. Brad’s parents are there, his brother and Angie’s brother are all there, why would they go to Bono’s? She has only been out of the hospital a week.

    And like mslewis said, why christen the twins and not the others?

    Angie doesn’t study one reglion, she studies them all.

    The stories just get more ridiculous.

  10. mslewis says

    This is just another made up story from a rag (in this case, the Mirror). Why would Angie and Brad, who have both said they have no formal religion and have not christianed any of their other children, decide all of a sudden to ask Bono to be the godfather of their twins? And asking Angelina’s ex-lesbian lover to be godmother??? Come on people!! How can anybody believe that? These stories get more stupid by the minute.

  11. Ceilidh says

    Are Brad and Angelina even religious? They don’t strike me as followers of an organized religion, but wouldn’t a CHRISTening suggest they are Christian? Or is this just another media grab? Not that Bono wouldn’t be a cool godfather… just curious.

    Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are heaven @ work here on earth.

    I was so hurt as a fan when Gweneth and Brad called it off.

    Then when he did the stupid horrendous idiotic mistake of MARRYING Jennifer(looks like a man) Aniston, I lost alot of faith in him.

    I felt he was lost and confused and basically on crack.

    Then when he and Angelina came together i just knew that everything in life happens for a reason. These two people are so perfectly meant for each other and you can see the heavenly perfection between them.

    Jennifer proved herself to be a stupid whore when she took up with Vince Vaughn! Come on she just wanted info from him about what when on at the set of Mr & Mrs Smith, the sick deranged broad. She should have given herself two years to heal and then hooked up! but no she’s been whorng around because thats her poor nature! so beneath Brad!
