We just love Eve Hewson!

And according to Collins Dictionary, it is “an actor, singer or famous figure who is likely only successful due to their even more famous parents, also nepotism baby“.

However, Eve Hewson was surprised to find that her name did not make the list. Come on, she’s Bono’s daughter.

She joked about the fact on social media, teasing that she wasn’t successful enough to have made the cut just yet.

“Gonna get Nepo Baby tattooed on my ass,“ she added.
