Peaches Geldof Welcomes Baby No. 2: Phaedra Cohen

The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 2 Premiere

Congratulations to Peaches Geldof and her husband Thomas Cohen who welcomed their second son Phaedra via Caesarean on Wednesday (April 24). The birth date was significant as it was also the 54th birthday of Peach’s late mother – Paula Yates.

Peaches told Hello! magazine: “Tom and I are completely overjoyed to welcome Phaedra into the world.”

Her rep added, “Peaches Geldof and Thomas Cohen are delighted to announce the birth of their son on April 24 2013. Both mother and baby are very healthy and well.”

The model and television presenter chose the name Phaedra — after an album by her favorite group Tangerine Dream.

A source told The Sun – “They are absolutely over the moon about their new arrival. It all went smoothly and Peaches will be in hospital for a while to recuperate. Bob (Geldof) is absolutely over the moon — the whole family are.

“They are particularly pleased about the significance of the date as it makes Peaches feel she is keeping her mum’s memory alive.”

On Thursday (April 25) Peaches posted a photo of Astala, 1,  in his stroller. She wrote: “My handsome boy.”

  • Emily

    Poor boy was given a girl’s name.

    • Louise

      That goes or both boys, actually…

  • Anonymous

    You mean that’s an actual name?

    • NYCMommy

      anonymous- thanks so much you gave me a nice chuckle for the day. Additionally, I was thinking the same thing myself. :) but then I googled it and found it is the name of the daughter of some greek gods and means Bright…..learn something new everday. :)

  • SMH

    Her sisters are Fifi Trixibelle, Pixie Geldof and Tiger Lily.


    I think if I was given such an outrageous name I would grow up to smack my parents in the face lol. Then again maybe they appreciate the uniqueness!

    • Annie_S

      Their full names are actuallyLittle Pixie, Peaches Honeyblossom and Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily Hutchence Geldof … I googled it .. Not to be mean but he was naming human beings not dogs or sth..

  • arabella

    If I grew up with the name peaches honey blossom I’d give my sons normal names.

  • Lauren

    I don’t think it’s too bad. I think they went for a theme really, unique, but not made up or food. Personally, I wouldn’t name my children like she named hers, but they’re infinitely better than Apple or Pilot Inspektor.

    • Anne

      I guess I’d never get what is so wrong about Apple. It SOUNDS totally like a name. Not less a name than Rose, Lily or Patience, for instance )

  • Tina

    They look like they could both use a blood tranfusion
