Thomas Cohen Tweets Picture Of Son Astala

Thomas Cohen, 20 – the fiancé of Peaches Geldof, 23 – treated his Twitter fans to a picture of the couple’s infant son Astala, captioning the photo with: “Sweet Chops.”

The couple – who welcomed their first child in April – recently introduced their newborn son in Hello! magazine and revealed that the infant had difficulty breathing when he was born.

“It was the most terrifying experience, to have our tiny baby whisked away like that,” Peaches recalls. “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.’

After the 7 lb boy was delivered by C-section, he was rushed away by doctors just moments after Thomas cut the umbilical cord.

“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,” Peaches says. “To be able to finally hold him and take in all his little features was wonderful.”

    Initially thought this was Hilary Duff’s little guy; they look very much alike. What a little cutie. My heart goes out to Peaches and Thomas – how terrifying to have your baby whisked away not breathing. I wish these two much success after the wild stuff we’ve seen in the papers previously. Hopefully parenthood has helped them to mature,

    I don’t know if she head a c-section because she needed it or because she wanted one.

    But for those people who want one:

    problems with breathing and adapting to ‘the life outside’ are risks for c-sections. You never should forget that if you think about a c-section if it is not neccessary.

    It is sooo good, that there is the possibilty for a c-section if you need it because of a medical problem in your pregnancy and in that cases it can save lifes. But it’s still a risk, please don’t forget that!
