According to the Sunday Irish Mirror, Bono spent his birthday last Saturday quietly at home. His wife Ali reportedly organized a barbecue with family and close friends to celebrate Bono’s and daughter Jordan’s birthday. Huge amounts of gifts, cards, and flowers were seen delivered to their home all day.
The tabloid also reports that Bono treated himself to an unusual birthday present — a champion racehorse. An insider told the Mirror, “Bono has been a big fan of the gee-gees for years, so it is only natural that he has taken the next step and actually become the proud owner of his own racehorse.”
