Bob is ‘besotted’ with his first grandchild.
Recalling his first encounter with his grandson, she said: ‘He was incredibly gentle with Astala; he took him aside and was so quiet, which isn’t something my dad’s renowned for.
‘He’s besotted with Astala because he’s his first grandchild but especially, I think, because he’s the first boy in the family.’
But behind the portrait of the happy young family, Miss Geldof revealed how the couple had suffered a ‘terrifying’ ordeal following the birth of their son last month when he was rushed into intensive care.
The 7lb newborn was rushed away by doctors just moments after he was delivered by Cesarean section because of breathing difficulties.
We hope this is the making of Peaches and will give this family some stability and a fresh start. This little boy is bound to have a rebellious side and I can’t wait to see this family grow and develop. Also great to see a young couple looking so happy
