No, I know what you’re thinking. It’s probably either “why are we talking about Peaches Geldof?” or “when did Peaches Geldof become a mom?” or “who is Peaches Geldof?” or if you’re more in the know, you might just be wondering why I said that Peaches Geldof is a great mom. And those are all very, very fair questions.
Peaches is famous because she’s the daughter of other famous people, but also because she’s a hot mess. She became a mom back in April when she gave birth to a little boy that she named Astala, and she married the baby’s father, Thomas Cohen, over the weekend (which is important later!). We’re talking about her because she found a way to combine those two things, being a mom and being a hot mess, quite impressively.
THIS BITCH. But here’s the clincher:
Please note how her baby stroller managed to topple over with the baby inside, how the baby fell on the sidewalk, and how Peaches bent down to pick up the baby, all while never getting off her phone. But I guess all’s well that ends well, because the baby is fine and Peaches has some Very Strong Thoughts about the sidewalks in London. Here are her outraged tweets:
Was just walking with Astala in his pram and there was a massive hole in the pavement I didn’t see as was pushing the pram and the pram fell into it and toppled over! Thankfully Astala didn’t fall out as was strapped in and so didnt get hurt at all or cry. But still the London pavements are SO dangerous!
If he had fallen out he could have seriously hurt himself! And it’s impossible to see these cracks When pushing a pram
The mayor of london should do something about it it’s ridiculous! Thank god Astala is ok! X
That was after the incident, but after the photos were published, she tweeted this big long rant about how the photos were just a way of getting back at her for not allowing a certain publication to take photos at her wedding. She said that they were just making up “rude stories about my mothering ability because London’s roads are so crappy and dangerous.”
Peaches. Girl, look. I don’t even have a kid, but I understand that things happen. I understand that sometimes you can drop a baby, and sometimes you can knock a baby against a wall while you’re carrying it. Sometimes, obviously, you can even hit a bump in a sidewalk and turn your baby’s stroller over. Accidents happen, and it doesn’t make you a bad parent. Nobody thinks that you pushed your kid’s stroller down. We get it. What we don’t get is how you can watch your baby hit the pavement and not, you know, get off the phone.
