Despite calling his children Peaches, Fifi Trixibelle and Pixie, Bob Geldof is not impressed with the former’s decision to give her new son an unusual name. Peaches Geldof has called her son by fiancĂ© Tom Cohen, born earlier this month, Astala.

Geldof Senior seemingly told The Sun when asked about his daughter’s choice of name for his grandson: “Yuck! I’ve actually been begging them to change it. What’s he going to be called in school? Ass? Stella? It’s a girl’s name, let’s face it”.

But, despite the naming, Geldof is, obviously, delighted to have a grandchild, and even more so to have a boy in his family, having lived with four daughters for so long (his three own children by Paula Yates, and her other daughter Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily, who he adopted). He continued: “I’ve swam in oestrogen my entire life, and now finally a little chap comes along. It’s great”.
