That’s One Spooky Selfie! Peaches Geldof Shares Photo of Herself, Her Son Astala… and The Hand of a Ghostly Spirit
Peaches Geldof might want to give Derek Acorah a call, because it looks like she’s got a ghost that needs hunting.
The socialite shared a photo of herself and son Astala in the bath, but mysteriously a translucent hand of what could be a ghost can be seen just above her shoulder.
Peaches, 24, posted the spooky selfie on Instagram, and believes the hand belongs to the spirit of a woman who committed suicide 100 years ago after delivering a stillborn baby.
Geldof – who lives in the property in Kent, South East England, with her husband Thomas Cohen, Astala, and their other son, eight-month-old Phaedra – said: ‘The house was built in the 1920s by a rich man and his pregnant wife. However, his wife had a stillborn baby and was so grief-stricken she went mad. She apparently drowned herself in the bath.’
She added: ‘The presence I feel isn’t malignant or angry, rather maternal and friendly – the house has a lovely atmosphere.
‘Maybe she’s just making her presence known because she loves having babies around.’
Peaches has started to leave her door open when she sleeps at night in case the “ghost comes back”.
The daughter of Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates – decided to investigate the history of the house after posting the spooky snap on her Instagram account accompanied with the caption: ‘Close up shot of the mystery ghost hand in pic I took of Astala and me in the bath!!
‘And no that isn’t my hand – one of mine was round his waist to hold him during the photo, the other holding the camera to take the shot. Also the hand is around ym shoulder so totally weird angle if I did it myself. How terrifying!! (sic)’
A fan, Amber Micki, commented saying: ‘You should totally look up the history of your house and it’s grounds!’
Paranormal activity is clearly an interest to Geldof, who went on her own ghost hunting expedition with BBC Radio 1’s Aled Jones for her short-lived TV series OMG! With Peaches Geldof.
