Peaches Geldof Drops Her Baby, But Not Her Cell Phone Call (PHOTOS)

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.

Sir Bob Geldof's daughter, who married Astala's father, singer Thomas Cohen, on Saturday, took to Twitter to defend her parenting skills.

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.)

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.
