Peaches Geldof is pregnant with her first child.
Her spokeswoman said: ‘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.’
I read this news with a little uncertainty and a strange feeling in my stomach; happiness mixed with intrepidation, I think.
Peaches is known mostly for her partying and with one marriage behind her at the tender age of 22, it doesn’t seem to fare well for her. However, on the other hand it could also be the making of her.
A child who grew up in the limelight, dealt with her parents public divorce and of course her mother’s tragic death; it is not surprising that she wants something real of her own. I just hope she takes this seriously and follows that fairly grounded and honest parenting style her father is known for.
