Peaches Geldof, daughter of rocker Bob, has given birth to her first child, a baby boy…
The news was broken on Twitter by Peaches’ ex-boyfriend Fred MacPherson congratulating them on their happy news.
“Congratulations @tomfromscum and @peaches_g – all my thoughts are with the three of you today. <3,” he tweeted.
Peaches also sent a message via Twitter to her fans, confirming her baby joy.
“Yes, its true- I’M A MUMMY!!!!,” she wrote.
“My little boy is the most beautiful thing in this world. When he holds @tomfromscum’s finger with his hand its the sweetest thing ever. X,” she added.
Peaches and Thomas, who is in the band S.C.U.M, have been together since December 2010 and became engaged a year later.
The model and socialite, 23, confirmed back in January that she was pregnant with a boy and that her due date was 24 April, the same day as her mother Paula Yates’ birthday, who tragically died when she was just 41 from a heroin overdose.
“It was amazing for me when they told me that, very emotional and touching and just really beautiful. I was so happy,” she told Hello magazine.
“I feel like it’s a little wink from my mum; her way of sending a message to let me know that she’s watching over me and my baby.”
However, it appears the little boy was eager to come out a few days early!
If Peaches has stuck with her original name choice for her new son, he will be called Astala Dylan Willow Cohen-Geldof. She originally said she wanted the name Astala for her son because she found it “obscure”.
Despite having a somewhat troubled history including drug use, an unsuccessful marriage by age 20 and a topsy-turvy career (including Peaches’ infamous sacking from Ultimo when nude pictures of her were made public), it appears the young daughter of Bob Geldof has finally settled down – we’ve never seen her look happier than when she was pregnant and spending time with Thomas.
Congratulations to the new parents!
