Earth mother: Hippie-chick Peaches Geldof enjoys a relaxed day in the park with baby son Astala and fiancé Thomas Cohen


By Georgina Littlejohn

She has left her fast-living party days behind her and swapped them for dirty nappies, sleepless nights and baby grows.

But it appears that Peaches Geldof is not missing her busy social life one bit and has fully embraced motherhood and has taken to it like a natural.

And looking every inch the hippie-chick in her loose blouse and big full floral skirt, she and her little boy became at one with nature as they enjoyed a lazy day in the park.

She's a natural: Peaches Gelfof coos over her baby son Astala as they enjoy a lazy day in the park near her London home

The TV presenter was snapped nursing her newborn son Astala in a park near her north London home this week, making the most of a warm and sunny break in the weather.

And she didn't take her eyes off him for a second as she burped him, bounced him on her knee and gave her son lots of cuddles.

She recently spoke about breastfeeding her son and said: 'I feed him myself on demand, like mum did with us. The bond I have with Astala when I'm breastfeeding is something which is so incredibly special.

'The realisation that I am his source of life, that my body is producing what is keeping him alive is amazing.''

She was joined in the park by musician fiancé Thomas Cohen, who also looked very comfortable in his new role as a father as he held his son close and rocked him in his arms.

They were approached by other park goers enjoying the sunshine and who fussed and cooed over the little boy.

And staying dutifully and faithfully by their side was their cute Golden Retriever puppy Parpy, who kept a watchful eye over his young master.

Peaches gave birth to Astala, hers and Thomas's first child, at the end of April and they gave him the full name of Astala Dylan Willow Cohen-Geldof - something which her famous rocker father Sir Bob could not get his head around.

Although he has been doting over his first grandchild, he was unimpressed with his moniker and said: 'Yuck! What’s he going to be called in school? Ass? Stella? It’s a girl’s name, let’s face it.'

Astala was due on April 24 - the same day as her late mother Paula Yates's birthday but he arrived six days early by emergency Caesarian section.

But Peaches said she feels like her mother is watching over her although she admitted she wished she was here to help her with the baby.

She said: 'I've felt mum's presence all the way through my pregnancy and that has been really comforting. Becoming a mum has made me feel closer to her than I have ever felt, but it's also made me miss her more than ever.

'It has been upsetting for me that she hasn't been around to guide me and advise me and share in it all. She would have been such a cool grandma.'
