Exciting baby news for Peaches Geldof and musician fiancé

Peaches Geldof is pregnant with her first child, her spokeswoman has said.

The model and TV presenter, the daughter of Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates, recently got engaged to Thomas Cohen, a singer with post-punk band S.C.U.M.

Her spokeswoman said: "Peaches Geldof and her fiance Thomas Cohen are delighted to announce that Peaches is pregnant with their first child.



"Peaches is utterly thrilled and they have the full support of both of their families who are equally excited for the baby's arrival."

The 22-year-old has grown up in the glare of the limelight because her mother, the former presenter of Channel 4's Big Breakfast and The Tube, died from a drug overdose in 2000, aged 40.

In recent years, she has been carving out a niche presenting a number of youth TV programmes including Peaches Geldof: Teenage Mind and A Beginner's Guide To Islam.

She hit the headlines in 2009 by divorcing rock musician Max Drummey after a six-month marriage.

The pair had married in secret in a drive-in ceremony in Las Vegas after a 10-day romance.

This will be the first grandchild for Boomtown Rats singer Bob. Peaches is one of four girls along with Fifi, Pixie and Tiger – Paula's daughter with INXS frontman Michael Hutchence whom the Irishman adopted following her death.
