Peaches, a British socialite and model, is the daughter of Live Aid founder Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates. Her given name is Peaches Honeyblossom Michelle Charlotte Angel Vanessa Geldof, and the mum passed along the naming tradition by giving her son a long moniker of his own: Astala Dylan Willow Cohen-Geldof.
The “Cohen” part of Astala’s name comes from his dad, Thomas Cohen, the lead singer for the band S.C.U.M. In addition to being new parents — Astala was born in April — Peaches, 23, and Thomas are knee-deep in wedding plans.
“I haven’t been up to much at the moment aside from planning my wedding as it’s very near now,” Peaches blogged for Hello. “I never imagined the insane amount of planning that goes into these dos, right down to trivialities like the colour of napkin holders or the right angles to place chairs at – it’s completely ridiculous! Thankfully my wedding planner Danielle Nay of Transformers Event Planning does it for a living so that’s taken a lot of the stress away, but not quite all of it!”
“The one thing non-wedding related that has been taking up nearly all of my time at the moment is Astala,” Peaches added. “He’s just turned 5 months old and is perhaps the cutest baby of all time. He’s definitely the smiliest one I’ve ever encountered with the cheekiest grin and funniest, throaty giggle.”
Peaches chimed in about the age-old parenting challenge: getting the baby to sleep! “Astala has also been getting a bit naughty by trying to stay up much later than his 7pm bed time, which has resulted in Tom resorting to running around the kitchen table in circles with Astala in the sling, trying to get him to sleep that way. We realised that it was due to his napping too much during the day and we have now reached a happy nap-to-waking ratio, which means less night time partying for baby and more time sleeping for us, thank God. He loves to drift off in my arms watching his favourite show, Night Time Relax on Baby TV, and his little sleeping face looks like so angelic it’s almost too much to handle.”
