Peaches Geldof shares her family's magical Disneyland Paris trip

06 MARCH 2013

Peaches Geldof has taken her baby son Astala to explore the magic of Disneyland Paris and invited us all along for the ride, sharing her holiday snaps with fans via Twitter.

In the pictures, Peaches, 23 – who's six months pregnant with her second child – and her husband Thomas Cohen are seen with their 11-month-old son Astala against the famous backdrop of the Disney Castle.

With a silver Minnie Mouse-style bow and ears perched on her head, Bob Geldof's daughter was clearly in the holiday spirit, admitting that in one photo she looked "more excited than Astala - embarrassing!"

Most of the snaps taken by the proud parents are of Astala, whom they affectionately call Grublet, or Grubbie for short.

While taking in more of the resort's attractions, Astala, Peaches and Thomas meet the Genie from Aladdin, take a ride on the spinning saucers and watch a colourful parade pass by – the event where the most fun was to be had.

"At the parade! He was totally fascinated by all the floats and was clapping his little hands in excitement and shouting," Peaches wrote in the accompanying caption.

Although she is just three months away from giving birth to her second son, Peaches is having an active pregnancy and is making plenty of time for friends, family and holidays. She and Thomas – who have been friends for many years, started dating in December 2010 and married last September – have also recently returned from a belated honeymoon, pictures from which they also shared on twitter.

She and Tom plan to call their new arrival Phaedra. Explaining the unusual moniker in a recent interview with HELLO! Peaches said: "It's a name that comes from an ancient Greek play. But it also features in a song Tom and I both love called Some Velvet Morning by Lee Hazlewood."

She also revealed that finding out she was pregnant again so soon was "quite a shock", but added: "Tom was so happy. He loves being a dad so much and is brilliant with Astala, who totally adores him, so he was over the moon. I, on the other hand, did have a momentary panic and go, 'Oh my God, we're going to have a one-year-old and a one-month-old! How will we cope?'

"But Tom was so supportive and relaxed, it banished my doubts and I started imagining the two boys growing up together as the best of friends. It will be great for Astala to have Phaedra to play with."
