A series of pictures snapped last week on a London street indicate that British socialite Peaches Geldof's multitasking priorities might need a little work.
The 23-year-old new mother was taking little baby Astala Dylan Willow Geldof-Cohen for a walk when his pram hit an uneven stretch of pavement.
Geldof, who appears to be mid conversation, never drops the phone, even as her 5-month-old tumbles on to the sidewalk, landing with his feet all the way out of the stroller.
Was just walking with Astala in his pram and there was a massive hole in the pavement I didn't see as was pushing the pram and the pram..— Peaches Geldof (@peaches_g) September 6, 2012
-fell into it and toppled over! Thankfully Astala didn't fall out as was strapped in and so— Peaches Geldof (@peaches_g) September 6, 2012
Didnt get hurt at all or cry. But still the London pavements are SO dangerous!— Peaches Geldof (@peaches_g) September 6, 2012
Apparently, London sidewalks pose such a hazard that the authorities need to intervene, according to Geldof. (To be fair, it is hard to see cracks when one is preoccupied with a cell phone.)
The mayor of london should do something about it it's ridiculous! Thank god Astala is ok! X— Peaches Geldof (@peaches_g) September 6, 2012
No word yet as to whether Mayor Boris Johnson replied to Geldof's request.
Geldolf's mishap calls to mind a similar incident involving singer Britney Spears.
Spears, the mother of two children, made headlines in 2006 when cameras caught the pop star stumbling while holding baby Sean Preston. A bodyguard can be seen rushing to the baby's aid.
