YOU might not be surprised to learn that Bono, a full-on rock god, owns an extra-wide bed with room for six.

In fact, the devoted family man and his wife Ali splashed out on the super-sized bed for the benefit of their four children - because the youngsters so often end up climbing in with them.

Bono, who is celebrating 20 years of marriage to his childhood sweetheart, explains: "Four kids sleep in our bed too - sometimes all on the same night - so there's six of us!"
A 15 year old and 13 year old in family bed? How very cool.

Maybe other stars should take a leaf out of his book. He doesn't employ minders and blasts celebs who moan about fame.

I knew I loved him for more than his music and politics.

Sounds good, but it's his wife who does all the "minding" when he's off on tour or recording for months. Give HER the credit,

Bono is just an awesome guy! I agree, must give credit to Ali for 'minding' four children while he is away.
