Caution: Some scenes may be distressing.

Bob married the television presenter and Boomtown Rats fan Paula Yates in 1986. The couple had three daughters, Fifi Trixiebelle (born 1983), Peaches Honeyblossom (born 1990), and Pixie (born 1991). Paula interviewed1 the INXS singer Michael Hutchence and subsequently left her husband for him. They had a daughter, Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily Yates-Hutchence (born 1996). Paula and Bob were divorced earlier the same year.

When he and Paula Yates originally split, Bob lost custody of the children, and even though he fought through the courts successfully to get them back, he wrote a 30-page report entitled The Real Love That Dare Not Speak Its Name: A Sometimes Coherent Rant, passionately talking about fathers loving their children just as much as mothers. Speaking in 2004, Geldof said:

You provide what you can and you don't worry about it. There's so much crap talked about bringing up a child. A f***ing moron could do it. Morons do bring up their children. It's just endless love, endless patience, that's it.
