New mother Peaches Geldof has revealed how she suffered a terrifying ordeal following the birth of her son when he was rushed into intensive care.
The newborn, named Astala, was hurried away just moments after he was delivered by Caesarean section because of breathing difficulties.
"It was the most terrifying experience, to have our tiny baby whisked away like that," Geldof reveals in an interview with Hello! magazine.
"I was yearning for that skin-to-skin contact I'd waited so long for and to not be able to hold him and nurse him and comfort him was so upsetting."
The drama occurred after her fiance, musician Thomas Cohen, cut the umbilical cord of the boy, whose full name is Astala Dylan Willow Geldof-Cohen. The infant has since made a full recovery following the birth last month.
"He had a lack of something called surfactant, which made it a struggle for him to breathe. He was in intensive care for a few days," Geldof says.
"To be able to finally hold him and take in all his little features was wonderful."
Her father Bob Geldof told last week of how he was still struggling to come to terms with the boy's unusual name, which is an old Jewish name - the male equivalent of Esther.
But Geldof says her dad, a first time grandfather, is actually "besotted" with the new addition to the family.
"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."
And she said her dad now has a particular photo of the baby as a screensaver on his phone, which was taken by Cohen, who is in up and coming band S.C.U.M.
"Astala's sticking two fingers up and has this really rebellious look on his face. Dad was like, 'That's my boy!' when he saw it."
