Peaches Geldof looks tired while ‘waging a never ending dirty nappy war’

Peaches Geldof

If you would have told me a few years ago that Peaches Geldof would be living the earthy mother lifestyle while raising two children under the age of two, I’d have laughed you out of the room. Remember what an utter mess Peaches used to be? She was constantly stumbling out of nightclubs and having a good time with heroin, lemons, and Xenu while everyone just cringed and hoped for the best.

Well, I think things have turned out relatively well in retrospect. Peaches bounced back almost immediately after giving birth to her first son, Astala, last year. And then less than three months later, Peaches was pregnant with her second child, Phaedra. Now she’s posting up a storm on Instagram (her tagline is “waging a never ending war against dirty nappies…“) with all sorts of happy family photos. The odd thing is that I think this is probably the happiest she’s been in her entire life.

I have no earthly idea at this point how Peaches is supporting these children other than by selling exclusive stories to Hello! magazine. I know it’s hard to believe, but Peaches has always maintained that her father, Bob Geldof, does not give her money because he expects all of his adult children to earn their own keep. Meanwhile, Peaches’ husband and baby daddy, Thomas Cohen, simply cannot earn that much money from being a musician since his band, S.C.U.M., broke up earlier this year after a long hiatus. So maybe Peaches is trying to angle her way into some sort of reality show with her growing family. Thomas is obviously a very involved and active father in both his childrens’ lives. I’ll never get over how much he looks like a young Bob Geldof though.

Here’s a picture of Peaches looking absolutely exhausted while holding both of her sons at once. I do not envy the experience of having two kids (and non-twins at that) in diapers at once. She looks satisfied though, no?

Of course, Peaches and Thomas still made it to Glastonbury a few weeks ago. I guess Bob was babysitting … while surreptitiously trying to figure out how to change his grandsons’ names.

Oh, and here is Peaches’ dog, Parpy. You know I couldn’t end this post without a good puppy photo.

    Those two are the cutest celebrity babies I have ever seen. So chubby.
    Awful names, though.

    • wiffie says:

      Sorry. She’s babywearing all wrong. Bjorns Facing out are awful on their hips, and they’re way too low. She should be able to kiss their head or you’re talking major back problems.

      And why is that kid drinking 8 oz of juice?

      Other than that, good for her.

      • Mr. Stinky FishFace says:

        That is exactly what I noticed too. She should invest in a Ergo, its not like she doesn’t have the money!

      • Bodhi says:

        You beat me to it! Those crotch danglers can cause harm to both parents and babies. Good on her for doing it, but shes got the resources to get a good carrier or wrap

      • audrey says:

        FTM here

        How do I know if I’m wearing my baby right in the carrier?

        I assumed that I am but now you have me worried. My 3.5 month old is forward facing, it’s the only way she’ll go in it. Her head control is perfect

        But yeah, what should I be looking for?

      • Bodhi says:

        @Audrey, wearing babies face out is not recommended. Soft-structure carries such as Ergo, Kinder Pack, Tula are the best way to carry your babe. You can also use wraps or ring slings. There are a LOT of videos on You Tube about proper baby wearing. Check facebook for local BW groups. I live in OK & am part of the Tulsa group.

      • lastcontrast says:

        The crazy thing is she is carrying him in an ergo inward facing in the second shot. I can’t picture using the bjorn if you have an better carrier just due to comfort levels on your own back!

      • K says:

        The older boy is in the Ergo shot. The younger is too small yet for one – they need to be 6 months or so and the baby insert is a faff, and it’s too hot here now for one anyway.

        I agree she’d be better with a Peanut Shell or a wrap, though. And my son was rearfacing in carseats (until 4), strollers and slings. Easier to talk with them that way, as well as safer for a car seat and more comforting for a carrier. If they’re old enough to face forward, IMO they’re old enough for a back-carry too.

  2. RocketMerry says:

    She looks cute, happy and somewhat healthy, although I cannot figure out how she manages to stay that skinny.

    Let’s just hope for the best, still.

    • Lilalis says:

      By not becoming fat during pregnancy. I did the same, at least with my second pregnancy.

    • Bodhi says:

      No kidding. She looked like she only gained what the babies weighed which isn’t terrible healthy. The babies look fat & happy though so I guess she was healthy when she was pregnant. She sure didn’t look like it, though

    • Jane says:

      Really? She looks totally underweight to me. God knows what rich people do to stay thin.

  3. Sixer says:

    My two kids are 15 months apart, so I had two in nappies for a good while. Never found it much of a problem, to be honest. Worst was being trapped at home because if one wasn’t napping, the other was!

  4. Paige says:

    I feel ya lady! I currently have 3 babes under 2 yrs including twins. It is insane. And the doctor said I couldn’t have kids,,,,,,

  5. Sannie says:

    Cute babies, she looks tired, but happy.

  6. Suze says:

    Her husband does look her dad – a bit strange. But they seem happy – kids are very cute.

  7. paranormalgirl says:

    She looks fantastic!

  8. Aussie girl says:

    She looks so much better with little make up on.

    • Pandy says:

      Ah, I thought she looked good without her makeup. She’s young – they all look good akeup-free at that age! Or should anyway – cough Blohan – cough.

  9. mkyarwood says:

    I can’t hate them. The mother veil really worked for her <3

  10. Jessie says:

    I have two babies 18 months apart. It would have been easier just to have twins, I think. I’m currently trying to potty train one but the younger one comes in and tries to use the potty as a basket. The worst in when they want to be picked up at the same time, because they are big boys (both over the 98% in height and weight).

  11. Fritzi Schnitzer says:

    How did those two scrawny pasty stick insects produce those giant monster babies?

  12. Jen34 says:

    Her kids are beautiful.

    I had 2 kids in 16 months. It is a 24 hour a day job. I remember when my parents would come over to help for a few hours, it felt like no help because i still had 21 hours of work ahead of me. In other words, considering she went to Glastonbury, I doubt her life is just changing nappies.

  13. Scarlet Vixen says:

    Wow, she looks SO much better without makeup! Her skin looks great! I had my 2nd & 3rd babies 23 months apart and had 3 kids under 5yrs old. I definitely sympathize with the diaper hatred. I can’t imagine getting pregnant again 3 months post-partum tho. Even 14 months post-partum I was pretty upset about getting pregnant again. I just wanted my body back and all to myself after pregnancies, co-sleeping, breastfeeding, pumping, etc! Whenever my husband complains he doesnt get to go out and drink with his friends enough I remind him I’ve been either pregnant or breastfeeding (or both) now for nearly 6 of the last 7 years so I have no sympathy. :-)

  14. Jennifer12 says:

    She’s beautiful, but so skinny. It’s a little worrisome. And that neither she nor her husband have any way to support the kids is kind of scary as well.

  15. Mr. Stinky FishFace says:

    I have two kids that are 15 months apart and its more work than I ever imagined. My friends with twins say they have it much easier and I fully believe them. Either way those are adorable kids!

  16. NEENAZEE says:

    She’s only 22 or 23 right? Give it a few years (or months) and she’ll get tired of the earth mother schtick and start hitting the nightclubs (and the booze) again.

  17. truthful says:

    who knew, motherhood would ground her and settle her some what…

    I’m sure she can still click on crazy but I like this..

    maybe his parents and her dad are supporting them to help w/those adorable kids and pup.

    she did good

    I do not miss her badly stained vintage dresses and scuffed up platforms, LOL!

  18. Decloo says:

    I like her so much better now that I know she has a Parpy.

  19. Lilyvanilli says:

    Her mum spent years being a very vocal earth mother before her final spiral. This looks very déjà vu to me.
