EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Libertines star Pete Doherty is still rocking (his baby) as he’s seen doting on his two-month-old daughter in Germany
Do you even recognise this man?
It’s Pete Doherty, the once-dishevelled, drug-addled boyfriend of model Kate Moss.
But the rock singer, 44, has turned over a new leaf. Now sober and drug-free, he’s ditched his grungy on-stage persona in favour of a slightly more polished look as a doting father.
The Libertines star was spotted wearing a flat cap and jacket as he held his two-month-old girl, Billie-May.
Her mother is Doherty’s wife, Katia de Vidas, a keyboards player.
The pair were returning from the opening of his art exhibition in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Court chukka’s out claim against royal polo club
King Charles was its founding patron and Princes William and Harry are both registered players, yet that hasn’t prevented the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club being accused of trademark infringement by a U.S. clothing brand.
Lifestyle Equities argued its Beverly Hills Polo Club logo could be ‘confused’ with the sign for the club near Windsor. The club said the Beverly Hills logo and other polo brands had co-existed for years.
Mr Justice Mellor said he found ‘a number of problems with the evidence put before the court’ by Lifestyle Equities and dismissed the claim.
Lifestyle Equities said it would appeal the decision.

The smart set’s talking about…Davina’s gold-plated riposte
When Tatler magazine’s social editor, Davina Motion, got engaged to one of the country’s most eligible bachelors, friends joked a little unkindly about gold-digging.
Now the wife of George, Viscount Chelsea, heir to the £5.57billion fortune of his father Earl Cadogan, Davina has cocked a snook at her critics by giving a party with the theme – Gold.
And, demonstrating that he was in on the joke, George, 27, turned up dressed as a gold miner, with glittering pick and a jar of nuggets.
Davina, 27, an alumna of £43,000-per-year Heathfield School in Ascot, shimmered in a gold-fringed jacket at the party in Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire.
The couple were married last summer at St Luke’s Church in Chelsea, where George’s father owns nearly 100 acres of West London.

Tycoon is a word that conjures images of a self-made man, but for Sir Richard Branson it’s an expletive. Comedian Paul Foot filmed a television advertisement for Virgin Mobile in which his character’s phone rang. ‘I said something like: ‘Hello, you tycoon.’ And then I was told that Richard Branson didn’t like being called a tycoon, so I had to change it to ‘Successful businessman’. ‘
Branson, who is reputedly worth £2.41 billion, has said he can’t stand the word ‘billionaire’ either. You can’t please some people.
