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."

Instead of dwelling on your disappointment, turn your attention to more rewarding pursuits. Working on an unusual creative project fills you with excitement. Don't show the fruits of your labour to anyone just now. You'll go through several drafts before you're happy with the result. At that point, you can show off your handiwork. Prepare to receive warm praise for your exceptional talent.More
