Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie want Bono to be godfather to twins
By Zoe Griffin
It's the Sweetest Thing for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's newborn twins.
Little Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline are only a few weeks old, but they've already shot straight to the top of the showbiz A-list by bagging a superstar godfather - U2's Bono.
Some kids have all the luck!
After giving birth two weeks ago, Angelina, 33, and Brad, 44, spent a week bonding with their new bundles of joy at Bono's bolthole in a leafy village in the South of France.
And in return for the kind gesture, the Hollywood couple have asked him to be a permanent fixture in the lives of their tots.
Sources tell me thrilled Bono, 48, accepted the offer immediately.
A pal of the A-list parents 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."
I'm told 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.
I'd do it - I could take the kids to all the best shops and I do a mean spag bol. But in the meantime, I'm sure dad-of-four Bono will do a top job. He's already a godfather to The Edge's daughter Hollie, 24.
And he's got houses in Killiney, Ireland and New York, should the family need another getaway.
