As mother-to-be, Peaches Geldof proudly showed off her baby bump for the first time since breaking the news about her pregnancy, she revealed she had yet more news to tell us… Not only is she expecting a boy but also the child is expected to be born on her late mother Paula Yates‘ birthday, April 24th.
Peaches was only 11-years-old when writer and broadcaster Yates died of a heroin overdose in September of 2000. Now 22, she said: “I feel like it’s a little wink from my mum, her way of sending a message to let me know that she’s watching over me and my baby.”
Peaches also added that her father, Sir Bob Geldof was ‘overwhelmed and emotional’ when she told him that she was pregnant. However, she did confess that she kept it a secret from him and everyone else for almost five months!
Speaking about her father’s reaction, the model and Showtime presenter told Hello magazine; “Oh my God, he was so happy, especially as I’m having a boy. The poor man’s been surrounded by women up till now.”
She also mentioned how Sir Bob had given fiancé Tom Cohen, the seal of approval, and said out of all her boyfriends, Tom was his favorite.
Always a good thing to be on your father-in-laws good side, especially if your father-in-law is Bob Geldof!
“He told us we must never break up; that we must make our child happy, get married and be together forever.” The world has been listening to Bob for decades, so I am sure Peaches and Tom will too, we wish the couple all the best!

Socialite and part-time model Peaches Geldof has announced that she and fiancé Thomas Cohen are expecting their first child together.
The 22-year-old, who has been married once before to musician Max Drummey, got engagement to Cohen last month, after the pair had been dating for a year.
In a statement issued today, Peaches’ spokeswoman, who broke the news confirmed: “Peaches Geldof and her fiancé Thomas Cohen are delighted to announce that Peaches is pregnant with their first child.
“Peaches is utterly thrilled and they have the full support of both of their families who are equally excited for the baby’s arrival.”
Peaches, has grown up in the media spotlight has carved out a niche presenting a number of youth TV programmes including Peaches Geldof: Teenage Mind and A Beginner’s Guide To Islam.
Her father is musician Bob Geldof, while her mother, Big Breakfast presenter Paula Yates, died from an accidental heroin overdose in 2000, at the age of 40.
I hope that this will see the end of young Geldof’s wild-child partying ways…For now at least!

Don’t panic everyone; Peaches Geldof hasn’t undergone a drastic new image change. But, the 22 year-old has been selected by the Cartoon Network to morph into the Cheetara, the sexy female character from cult cartoon show ThunderCats, to help celebrate the launch of their new high definition channel.
Seeing this takes me right back to my childhood, minus the HD, of course…
The launch of the new channel coincides with the launch of the new, revamped, ThunderCats series, which was a massive cult classic in the 1980s…before Peaches was born.
I must say thought, Peaches is totally rocking the outfit…Well I say “outfit”, the majority of it has in fact been painted on onto the slim line new figure of young Peaches, who has faced a barrage of criticism of late about her dramatic weight loss. Although, I think she looks rather good!
This is definitely one-way to silence her critics, and she has probably fulfilled thousands of late 20 year-old guy’s fantasies and for that Miss Geldof, I can only say this is a job well done!

It seems a bitter Twitter row has erupted between Ex-wild child Emma Ridley and Sir Bob Geldof’s wayward daughter Peaches over an open letter written by Ridley that appeared in The Sun newspaper over TWO years ago!
In the article published back in February 2009, Ridley simply gave her open, honest opinion to Geldof, ‘not to grow up too quickly.’
Good advice if you ask me, from someone who at the time, had ran off to Las Vegas to get married at the tender age of 15, only to divorce months later.
But now, after revelations of Geldof’s latest wild antics appeared in yesterday’s Sun, in which the party girl is alleged to have had a five in a bed orgy, Ridley’s article has resurfaced and caused quite the ‘tweet’ drama.
Earlier today Ridley innocently tweeted Geldof a link to the article as a friendly reminder to calm it down and for a bit of healthy advice. Now close sources say Ridley’s tweet has enraged young Peaches and she has since blocked Ridley from following her on Twitter… I wonder if she’d block me if I send her the same link?
Ridley responded, “@peaches_g blocked me after I posted my letter in the #thesunnewspaper. I guess some people just aren’t mature enough to handle the truth.”
It would seem it has taken 2 years for Peaches to react to the article; maybe she needs another 2 years for it to sink in.
Ridley was one of the most talk about celebrities’ back in the late 80′s, with a life not to dissimilar to the one Peaches is living now… So if anyone is qualified to give such advice based on her own past experiences, Ridley certainly knows what she is talking about. The former Royal Ballet school student also knew Geldof’s mother, the late Paula Yates, who died of a drug overdose back in 2000. Now a mother of three, Ridley has reinvented herself as a fitness guru and is living a healthily life in Hollywood.
A close source said: “The letter Emma wrote in the Sun wasn’t meant to offend, it was merely to give Peaches some friendly advice from someone who has had similar experiences.”
Adding: “blocking Emma on Twitter was very childish indeed and has us all believing that what we read about Peaches could well be true with that type of immature behavior.”
Peaches is yet to respond to Emma’s tweet, but it’s obvious that Ridley only had her best interests at heart…I know at 22 one thinks they know best, but sometimes a little sound advice from those in the know can’t hurt, and we’d hate to see history to repeat itself!

A source told the Daily Mirror: “Peaches is really sad that things didn’t work out with Eli. They were very much in love and she’d never been so nuts about a guy.”
The couple, who were rumoured to be engaged, apparently broke up because they were not going to be able to spend enough time together due to their separate and busy careers.
The insider explained: “It was almost better for them to part ways before things got even trickier with making time for each other. Both are hard workers and have huge work commitments coming up, so they were due to be spending too much time apart.” Geldof and Roth apparently still remain “great friends.”
Geldof is said to be focusing on building her status as a (ahem) TV presenter (laughs).
For some reason it does not seem like Peaches is exactly devastated by the dissolution of her relationship with Eli. If they were truly in love and invested, I think they would have found a way to work it out despite their busy schedules. Maybe Peaches is looking for a boyfriend who is less ripe.
Well, I guess it was not meant to be. I hope both Peaches and Eli are able to move on with their lives and find lasting happiness.

I have to be honest, looking at the unflattering near-naked body of Peaches Geldof first thing this morning certainly made me scream a little… Even Janet Leigh herself would have shrieked at Geldof’s cheap impersonation taken from Alfred Hitchcock’s spine chilling 1960’s flick, Psycho.
The 21-year old, um, whatchamacallit and daughter of Live Aid hero Sir Bob Geldof posted this gruesome picture of herself in the shower and with around 89,000 ‘twits’ following her Twitter page, this is sure to raise a few eyebrows!
Twitter addict, Peaches, who is currently dating horror director Eli Roth, could well have been auditioning for one of Roth’s upcoming movies, though I suspect this was just nothing more than a (ahem) ‘slice’ of desperate attention grabbing… Where’s Anthony Perkins when you need him?
What on earth would your daddy say, eh Peaches?!

A source close to Peaches Geldof says the British celebutant is planning to marry movie director Eli Roth as early as January, according to BANG Showbiz. The wedding is reportedly to be a traditional Jewish ceremony, in accordance with Roth’s faith, and will be held on a New York rooftop.
Speaking about the couple’s plans, the insider said: “They are confident this is the real deal. They want a wedding on a New York rooftop and plan to invite about 50 friends including [Roth’s fellow director] Quentin Tarantino. Apart from the trendy Manhattan venue it will be a traditional Jewish ceremony in keeping with Eli’s family faith. They have been trying to keep it a secret.”
In terms of Geldof and Roth having children, to the Sun newspaper the source revealed: “We wouldn’t be surprised if they started a family together very soon.”
It remains to be seen whether or not dear Peaches will convert to Judaism, which would be necessary if the wedding is to be recognized as orthodox. If Peaches does convert, I wonder what the members of her synagogue will think of their newest congregant… the picture perfect virgin bride!
If the two do get married, it would not be Geldof’s first time, seeing as the 21-year-old married American musician Max Drummey in 2008, only to divorce him seven months later. Good luck Eli!

Sir Bob’s daughter, Peaches Geldof demonstrates ‘what not to wear’ when riding on the back of a Vespa in Los Angeles yesterday. At least she did the sensible thing of wearing a crash helmet as she rode around town on the back of a male friend’s bike.
I hear the twit-girl socialite and wannabe model actually twitters her locations now so as the paparazzi can find her more easily. Wait, who on earth could miss her dressed up like that in broad daylight anyway?!
Looking as if she had been up all night partying and still on the go, in a gold sequined dress exposing her red swimsuit bottoms, Peaches’ outfit left little to the imagination. What would her boyfriend Eli Roth say about this?
I suppose this is one way to gain a few more column inches … Memo to Peaches: Time to get yourself a job dear and do something more constructive with your life, your daddy is far from impressed with your headline grabbing antics … Trust me, I know!
