London, June 19 (ANI): Celebrity chef Nigella Lawson has claimed that she is such a big fan of ‘Bruno’-comedian Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest alter ego-that she has even named her son after him.

Bruno is a fictional gay Austrian fashion reporter portrayed by Baron Cohen, who interviews unsuspecting guests about topics like fashion, entertainment, celebrities and homosexuality

The 49-year-old British cook has two children Cosima, 14, and Bruno, 12, from her first marriage to the late journalist John Diamond.

The Domestic Goddess has now revealed that Baron Cohen, 37, has been her long-standing family friend.

And, as a youngster, he often gave first-hand demonstrations of his favourite comic creations, which inspired her to name her second-born after Bruno.

“I’ve known Sacha since he did Bruno when he was a young man and my son is named Bruno after him - partly after Bruno!” the Daily Express quoted her as telling at the film’s premiere in London’s Leicester Square. (ANI)
