Her dad is Bono and her sister Eve is a successful actress, but Jordan Hewson usually stays out of the limelight.

That changed at the weekend when she joined Eve out and about on the New York social scene.

The 25-year-old daughter of the U2 frontman and Ali Hewson values her privacy so much that she hasn't even revealed which American university she attended.

However, she didn't seem to mind being in the spotlight on Saturday when she stepped out with Eve (23) at the 2014 Global Citizen Festival, which took place on the Green Lawn of Central Park in New York.
