Peaches Geldof gives birth to baby Phaedra on her late mother's birthday


Peaches Geldof gave birth to her second child on her late mother Paula Yates’ birthday this week.

The daughter of Boomtown Rats frontman Bob Geldof, 24, had a caesarean on 24 April.

She gave birth to a baby boy called Phaedra – a brother to her one-year-old son Astala.

Peaches’ husband Tom Cohen, singer in the band S.C.U.M, was present at the birth.

The baby’s grandmother, Paula Yates, who died of a drug overdose in 2000, would have been celebrating her 54 birthday had she survived.

Peaches and Tom were married last year at the church in Kent where her parents tied the knot in 1986.
