Bono’s son Elijah Hewson is following in his father’s footsteps by getting into the music industry. 

And on Friday, the 21-year-old appeared live on the Today show with his Inhaler bandmates and spoke about their debut album, It Won’t Always Be Like This. 

Elijah was also asked about his famous father, 61, who is the lead vocalist of the rock band U2, and said that thinks his father is ‘proud’ of him and his new music.

‘I don’t call him Bono or anything like that,’ Elijah said about his father, whose real name is Paul David Hewson.

‘I hope he feels proud. I think all the parents were a little nervous when they found out we were going into a band,’ he said about his bandmates. 

‘I think they all just saw the passion we had for it and the drive. But I think he feels proud. He can tell me if he didn’t like it, he’s honest like that.’

About the band’s debut album, Elijah said it’s a little nerve-wracking releasing their tracks to the world.   

‘It’s a little scary, it’s like letting your child go off to college or something like that, you don’t know what it’s going to get up to but you’re proud and a little nervous,’ he said.  

Bono shares four children with wife Alison Hewson, daughters Jordan, 32, and Eve, 30, and sons Elijah and John, 20. 

Eve is an actress and in February told The Telegraph that she ‘feels like an individual now’ with an identity separate from her father.

She said she knew from an early age she would never have any ‘anonymity’ no matter what career she chose.

‘To be honest, I was never going to have my anonymity and be a regular Joe,’ she told the publication.

‘I was always going to have eyes on me, whatever I did, so it’s been great to build my own identity and my own career and feel like I’m an individual now, as opposed to a part of something or someone else.’

Eve joked her dad is looking forward to the day someone asks him: ‘Are you Eve Hewson’s father?’ rather than people asking her about him.
