"Adam Clayton has finally found what he's looking for. The U2 bassist is a father. He had a child with a French woman early last year. For years, Adam was the only one in the world-famous band who wasn't a parent. "
The piece is unconfirmed by any official source and relies rather heavily on "unnamed sources" and old quotes cobbled together. I guess we'll see.

Originally posted by U2Nick:I think that out of all of the members, Adam would be the coolest Dad. Bono would always be off being a diplomat and things like that, Larry would be kind of strict, Edge would be alright, but he would be a typical "nerdy dad." Adam is the one that would let the kids have cake for breakfast, and help them come up with excuses for not turning in homework.
