WENN: U2’s Bono Gives Christy Turlington Irish Nickname

Supermodel Christy Turlington has been given the Irish nickname Nuala by close friend U2 frontman Bono.

The 37-year-old covergirl is married to Irish-American actor Ed Burns and makes regular trips to the European country to visit long term pal Bono, who gave her away at her wedding three years ago (03).

The pair even named their five-month-old son in tribute to the beauty’s nickname.

Burns says, "In Ireland, our friends over there call her Nuala, short for Fionnuala. So when Finn came along we really named him after Fionnuala, or Christy."
