These pics have been making us all coo at Parentdish HQ.

Peaches Geldof has tweeted two adorable photos of her new baby Astala, showing he's already mastered the art of a smile ready for the cameras at just three weeks old. Or then again it's probably just wind.

The cute piccies come as Peaches revealed her son's dramatic delivery in Hello! magazine. The new mum told the magazine that Astala had difficulty breathing straight after his birth:

"It was the most terrifying experience, to have our tiny baby whisked away like that.

"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."

Astala is Peaches first baby with fiancé Thomas Cohen. His slightly unusual name has been causing granddad Bob Geldof some trouble (yes, this coming from the man who named his daughters Peaches and Pixie!).

"I've actually been begging them to change it," admitted Sir Bob. "What's he going to be called in school? Ass? Stella? It's a girl's name, let's face it."

Cute pics, Peaches. Keep them coming please!
