Bono was offered some words of comfort to Maria Shriver this week over the split of her 25-year marriage to Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The couple’s marriage was rocked recently when the news emerged that the action hero had fathered a child with their housekeeper Mildred Baena.

The 51-year old Dubliner appeared to be having a serious conversation with the mother of four and at one point held her hand consolingly and patted her arm.

She is expected to officially file for divorce in the coming days.
