All the Jewish celebrity parent gossip you (n)ever wanted to know.
– Ok, here we go: Do you know who Peaches Geldof is? She is the daughter of UK musician Sir Bob Geldof/model/socialite who is engaged to Thomas Cohen, Jewish lead singer of the band S.C.U.M. And the two just had a baby boy. And they named him Astala Dylan Willow Geldof-Cohen. And Sir Bob Geldof doesn’t like this name, even though his children are named Fifi Trixibelle, Peaches Honeyblossom, Little Pixie, and Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily Hutchence-Geldof. But why did Peaches go with Astala? “I wanted a Jewish name because my fiance is a Jew and the name is the male version of Esther.” Right! (Daily Mail)
