Bono told Dublin Live news, “Ali and I are probably more in love now than when we got together.” He praised their relationship saying, “I don’t think it is given much credit, but when people work through their problems and stay together—Ordinary Love is that.” Referring to the song, he added that he hopes it is interesting to write genuine love songs, songs that are about more than the initial passion. His song “Sweetest Thing” was famously inspired by Ali.
Ali is a businesswoman and a long-time anti-nuclear advocate. She contributed to a documentary film about the Chernobyl disaster and has been a patron of Chernobyl Children’s Project International since 1994.
