Peaches Geldof, British socialite, writer and TV presenter and the second daughter of Bob Geldof and late Paula Yates has been confirmed dead at the young age of 25.

The young mother of 2 was said to have died suddenly in her home and no further information has been provided as at now.

According to reports police were called to a Wrotham address in Kent at 1.35pm today following a report of concern for the welfare of a woman. Peaches Geldof was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics. So far her passing is being treated as “an unexplained and sudden death.”

Peaches Geldof was married to musician Thomas Cohen, with whom she had two sons, Astala, one, and Phaedra, who will turn one on 24 April.

Confirming reports of her death, Bob Geldof said: “Peaches has died. We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us. Writing ‘was’ destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child.”

“How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever. How sad that sentence is.”

“Tom and her sons Astala and Phaedra will always belong in our family, fractured so often, but never broken. Bob, Jeanne, Fifi, Pixie and Tiger Geldof.”

Thomas Cohen said: “My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons Astala and Phaedra and I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts everyday. We shall love her forever.”

Geldof was 11 when her own mother TV presenter Yates died of an accidental drug overdose in September 2000. In September 2012 Geldof said she did not come to terms with her mother’s death for several years.

Her final tweet, posted on Sunday, linked to an Instagram picture of her, as a baby, in her mother’s arms.

The caption simply read: “Me and my mum.”

#RIPPeachesGeldof is now trending worldwide on Twitter and tributes have started to pour in as other celebrities mourn the young socialite. Peaches is survived by her two young sons and a husband.
