Baby on mum's birthday for Peaches

Peaches Geldof and Thomas Cohen have welcomed their second baby this week

Peaches Geldof has given birth to her second baby this week - on what would have been her mother's birthday.

The former wildchild, who already has a son called Astala with husband Thomas Cohen, gave birth on Wednesday to a boy called Phaedra, her spokeswoman said.

The couple married last year in Kent.

Speaking last year, Peaches said the baby's name was a nod to one of their favourite songs, Some Velvet Morning by Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra, which contains the line "Some velvet morning when I'm straight I'm gonna open up your gate and maybe tell you about Phaedra".

Geldof's mother, Paula Yates, died of a drug overdose in 2000.

A spokesman for the couple said: "Peaches Geldof and Thomas Cohen are delighted to announce the birth of their son on 24th April 2013. Both mother and baby are very healthy and well."
