An unexpected guest appeared in a photo with a woman and her son recently. She uploaded the self portrait on Instagram earlier this week and her celebrity father noticed a ghostly hand in the image, Fox News reported yesterday.

Irish singer-songwriter Bob Geldof noticed something strange in a photo that his 24-year-old daughter Peaches took recently. British model, journalist, and television presenter Peaches Geldof and her son Astala were taking a bath earlier this week when she decided to take a close-up photo of them to post on Instagram. In the photo, a strange ghostly hand can be seen on the socialite's right shoulder.

“Close-up shot of the mystery ghost hand in pic I took of Astala and me in the bath!” Geldof said on her Instagram account. “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 my shoulder so totally weird angle if I did it myself! How terrifying!”

Some of Geldof's friends think the hand is actually her hand. Geldof insists that the hand isn't hers or her son's. She believes that the hand belongs to a spirit of a woman and that the ghost is friendly and maternal. Geldof says that there is a good feeling in the home and she thinks the ghost likes being around young children.

“If you actually look really closely at the background you can actually see a boy standing in the mirror behind that thing,” Aria Montgramary, a friend of Geldof said.

Geldof lives in an old home in Southeast England with her husband and their two young children. Geldof's husband thinks that the hand belongs to a woman that committed suicide in the house over 100 years ago. According to the family, this isn't the only time that they've encountered her spirit.
