DUBLIN, Ireland (AP) _ Top model Naomi Campbell said on live television Saturday night that she is engaged to Adam Clayton, bass player for the Irish rock group U2.

″Adam popped the question on the phone when I was in New York. He was very straightforward about it,″ Campbell said on Irish TV’s ″Kenny Live″ show.

″I am marrying an Irish man,″ she said, showing off her engagement ring. ″I got it last night.″

The model, whose sexy newspaper ad for jeans was banned in Ireland a week ago, said the couple has not set a wedding date because U2 begins a four-month tour in June.


Campbell and Clayton have been regulars on the Dublin nightclub scene in recent months. Campbell said they were introduced by U2′s lead singer, Bono.

Clayton, 33, was born in Oxfordshire, England, west of Campbell’s hometown of London. His family moved to Dublin in 1965.
