Bono to Play Godfather to Brangelina’s Twins

Just two weeks after welcoming twins Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline into the world, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are about to extend their family by one.

British newspaper the Mirror reports that Brangelina (we can call them that, since we aren’t shelling out big bucks for their kids’ photos—so there) will be adopting U2 singer Bono to be the twins’ godfather.

“They have been friends for years,” says the paper’s source. “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.”

The paper’s source says that the singer immediately accepted the offer.

The couple, along with their ever-expanding brood, recently spent some R&R at Bono’s waterfront home in Eze, France.

Wow; between their parents’ rampant humanitarianism and their new godfather’s ceaseless cause-mongering, is there any chance that these kids won’t turn out to be activists?

Expect them on a PSA urging relief for the victims of diaper rash sometime in the next few weeks.
