Geldof had two sons, Astala and Phaedra, with her husband, musician Thomas Cohen.

UPDATE: Peaches’ father Bob Geldof and husband Thomas Cohen have released statements according to Grazia.

Bob Geldof:

“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:

“Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons…and I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts everyday.”
