It’s hard to imagine the death of a 25-year-old mother could be even more devastating—but new details on Peach Geldof’s death shed light on the heartbreaking details.
According to a new report, the aspiring fashion journalist was found dead with her 11-month-old son Phaedra by her side.
“The hope is that Phaedra is so young he wasn’t aware of what was going on,” a source said. “The most important thing is that he’s OK.”
Her husband, Thomas Cohen, is believed to have spent Sunday night away from their home with the couple’s other son Astala, 23 months.
“It’s devastating for Tom that he wasn’t there, but it couldn’t have been avoided,” a source said.
The 23-year-old called police when the mother-of-two didn’t answer his calls at their home in Kent, England.
The report claims the tragedy mirrors the death of Peaches’ mother, Paula Yates, who died from a drug overdose in 2000.
The British socialite’s half-sister and Paula’s youngest daughter, Tiger Lily, 4 at the time, was found next to her.
Police did not find a suicide note or evidence of drugs at the scene of Peaches' death, but some people close to the TV presenter believe depression could be to blame. Additional reports suggest her “juicing diet” could have played a role.
Just days before she suddenly died, the 25-year-old daughter of musician Bob Geldof [pictured together below] raved about her “perfect life” in her final column in Mother & Baby magazine.
She described being a mother to two sons as “bliss” and “right now, life is good.”
“I lived a life of wanton wanderlust. With fun loving friend from Los Angeles to London, I was lost in a haze of youth and no responsibilities,” she wrote.
“…when I had two wailing, smiling, joyful little blobs of waddling pink flesh, they became my entire existence and saved me from one of pure apathy.”
She continued: “Everything else was nothingness — I had the perfect life, two babies who loved me more than anything. It was and is bliss.
“Now with a newfound group of mummy mates, both locally and online, all with the exact same struggles and issues and who don't question if my child flings food at their hair or care if there's a screaming fit in the middle of the street – I'm happier than ever.”
British newspaper The Sun broke the news about her son being with Peaches in her final moments.
