Peaches Geldof expecting second child
Peaches Geldof and Thomas Cohen in 2011.
British socialite Peaches Geldof is pregnant with her second child.
Bob Geldof's 23-year-old daughter has announced she is expecting a little boy again - just seven months after she gave birth to first son Astala in April.
Geldof married rocker Thomas Cohen in September.
"I started getting a pregnancy tummy - I already have a very noticeable bump. When the test came up positive, Tom remembered that I'd been craving these particular sour sweets, which I've only ever eaten when I've been pregnant. He said, 'How could we not have guessed?'"
The couple have also already chosen the baby's name, revealing they will name him Phaedra.
"It's a name that comes from an ancient Greek play but it also features in a song Tom and I both love called Some Velvet Morning by Lee Hazlewood," she told Britain's Hello! magazine.
"Finding out I was pregnant again so soon was quite a shock. Tom was so happy. He loves being a dad so much and is brilliant with Astala, who totally adores him, so he was over the moon."
"I, on the other hand, did have a momentary panic and go, ‘Oh my God, we’re going to have a one-year-old and a one-month-old! How will we cope?’”
She added: “But Tom was so supportive and relaxed, it banished my doubts and I started imagining the two boys growing up together as the best of friends. It will be great for Astala to have Phaedra to play with.”
Geldof admits she had a "momentary panic" when she found out about her second pregnancy, but she is thrilled her family is growing.
"After Phaedra is born I'm going to be concentrating on the two boys so I don't think I'll be adding to our little brood until later on in my life when I'm older and don't have two toddlers running around demanding all of Tom's and my attention. I may be only 23 and the only one of our friends who's married, got a baby and one on the way ... but it's a life I've dreamed of and I couldn't be happier."
