Peaches Geldof was not one to shy away from sharing personal photos of her two children on social media. However, in an interview conducted just one month before her tragic death, Peaches opened up about how difficult motherhood was for her to embrace.
One month before her death on April 7, Peaches Geldof, 25, confessed that becoming a mother was much more difficult than she originally anticipated.
Peaches Geldof — Motherhood ‘Broke’ Her
In an interview conducted with Mother & Baby magazine, Peaches, who was a mother of two, admitted that being a mom really took a toll on her.
According to the Daily Mail, Peaches told the magazine that “she had cried with exhaustion and said that becoming a mother had ‘broken’ her.”
Sadly, Peaches had a troublesome childhood due to her mother, Paula Yates‘, heroin addiction and accidental suicide.
Peaches’ Opinion On Motherhood Did Change
Once Peaches became adjusted to having a child and the challenges of motherhood, she declared it was a healing experience for her.
Since her childhood was so difficult, her nanny started using attachment parenting techniques on her, which is what she says helped keep her from “losing it.”
“Becoming a mother was like becoming me, finally,” she told the magazine.
“After years of struggling to know myself, feeling lost at sea, rudderless and troubled, having babies through which to correct the multiple mistakes of my own traumatic childhood was beyond healing,” Peaches explained.
Even though her Instagram was deleted on April 8, it showed that Peaches was a proud mother who constantly shared photos and videos of her adorable children, Astala, 23 months, and Phaedra, 11 months.
