Peaches’ husband: ‘I’ll bring up our sons with their mother in their hearts’

Thomas Cohen, husband of Peaches Geldof, who's died aged 25, leads the tributes to his wife and say he and his sons will 'love her forever'


Peaches Geldof, 25, was found dead at her home in Kent yesterday – and her husband Thomas Cohen has been speaking about how much she was loved by him and their two small sons.


The mum-of-2, whose cause of death is still not known, doted on her sons, 23-month-old Astala and 11-month-old Phaedra.

She would often post up to 20 pictures of them a day on her Instagram account.

“My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons Astala and Phaedra,” said her musician husband Thomas in a statement last night, “and I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts every day.

“We shall love her forever.”

Peaches’ son Astala has his second birthday on April 21, and Phaedra has his first birthday on April 24 – the same day as what would have been the 54th birthday of Peaches’ late mother Paula Yates.

As news of Peaches’ death spread last night, hundreds of people left their tributes on her Instagram page, where only 24 hours ago she posted a childhood picture of herself with her mum Paula Yates.

“Rest in peace, Peaches,” one fan posted. “RIP. So sad and shocking,” wrote another.
