U2 guitarist The Edge embraces becoming a granddad as daughter Hollie welcomes baby boy to Ireland

The tot was born back in November and spent time with his famous granddad over the Christmas period

UCD graduate Hollie Evans flew over from London with her husband of three years, Jamie Hewitson, and little Arlo Jack to celebrate the holidays with her dad, the Irish Independent reports.
The 57-year-old musician relished spending some quality time with his new grandson following a successful, sold-out stint on tour with Bono and the boys.
Hollie is the eldest of The Edge's three daughters from his first marriage to Aislinn O'Sullivan. He married Morleigh Steinberg in 2002 and the couple have a son and daughter.
Proud dad Edge walked Hollie down the aisle at her intimate wedding ceremony in Tuscany in 2015.
The guitarist isn't the only family man of the group either as frontman and proud dad Bono turned up to NYF on New Year's Eve to watch his son Eli perform with his band Inhaler.
Gavin James, Wild Youth and Hudson Taylor also thrilled audiences at the sold-out event.

Bono and The Edge may have taken some well-deserved time off over Christmas but headed to the city centre on Christmas Eve to lead the annual busk for the homeless on the streets of Dublin.
The U2 pair, who were introduced as "two lads from north Dublin", serenaded fans outside the Gaiety Theatre near Grafton St with a moving rendition of Holy Night.
