Speaking at the Temperley show at London Fashion Week, Ms Geldof said she chose the name Astala Dylan for the baby because of her fiance Thomas Cohen.

She said: "I wanted a Jewish name because my fiance is a Jew and the name is the male version of Esther.

"We found it in a name book and liked it."

The socialite, who is due to give birth in two months' time, added: "I love being pregnant.

"My fiance has to cook for me, I'm so exhausted all the time but I love it."

She said her father, charity campaigner Bob Geldof, could not wait for the birth.

"He's happy that there is going to be a boy in the family, there will finally be an heir to the throne of Geldof," said Ms Geldof.

"My father is so ecstatic; if this was medieval England, I would be in the money."

She said: "I think having a baby will be a positive change in my life; we have a house and dog now."
