Celebs You Didn’t Know Are Father and Daughter


Bono and Eve Hewson
Everyone knows who Bono is – he’s been a staple in the world of rock and roll ever since U2 released their ground-breaking debut, Boy, in 1980 (11 years before Eve was born!). Eve is slowly making her way into acting, with credits including Cinemax’s The Knick and the film Enough Said. Funny enough, Bono and his wife Ali Hewson were against their daughter giving the acting world a go, but after a few solid roles under her belt, the married couple of 35 years have said they’re 100 percent behind Eve’s career.

Paul and Mira Sorvino
The Goodfellas star has plenty to be proud of, when it comes to both his career and his daughter, who has been in many films and won an Oscar for her work in Woody Allen’s Mighty Aphrodite. Don’t mess with papa bear though — in 2007, Paul experienced some old-school gangster action of his own when he pulled a gun on his daughter Amanda Sorvino ex-boyfriend after a messy break-up.


Lionel and Nicole Richie
We all know that Lionel, the former lead singer of The Commodores, adopted Nicole when she was 9, but very few know how that came to be. The meeting can be traced back to a Prince concert. Lionel saw a then 2-year-old Nicole playing tambourine on stage during a Controversy-era concert, and he met her and her parents backstage that night. Lionel say that Nicole’s family life was in shambles so he and his then wife allowed her to live with them. They eventually adopted her when the timing was right.
