“The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. I am just so happy for them, each one of them, you just hope they find their way and this is [Eli's] first love and it is great to see him find his way”

I bet Bono had a "I've turned into my father!" moment when telling Eli he should steer clear of a rock career!

The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.

Underneath it all, they must be thrilled. Well Bono must be - the expression on his face on the backstage photo in the report surely tells you.
One love, One blood, One life;
You got to do what you should.
One life; With each other
Sisters, Brothers
One life; But we're not the same
We get to carry each other, Carry each other

The Mirror is not the most reliable source. They seem to recycle quotes from years ago to generate clickbait. Edit: ok from scannning the article it does seem genuinely recent quotes. But in general I don't trust the Mirror. No offense to OP,, obvs.

No offence taken mate, we're on the same page with the Mirror's "journalism"! It's a bit of a clickbait headline anyway, because clearly Ali and Bono are supportive of their kids either way. I recall Bono saying if Inhaler didn't make it within a year, he told Eli to do something practical?
