Peaches Geldof has become a mother for the first time
The 23-year-old star and her fiance, rocker Thomas Cohen, became parents to a baby boy - who they had previously announced they planned to name Astala Dylan Willow - earlier this week and couldn`t be happier.
Peaches tweeted: "yes, it`s true - I`M A MUMMY!
"My little boy is the most beautiful thing in this world. When he holds @tomfromscum`s finger with his hand its the sweetest thing ever. (sic)"
Tom added: "I`m a dad he is the most perfect thing ever so proud of his beautiful mum @peaches_g and overcome with joy x (sic)"
Peaches` publicist later confirmed the news, but didn`t say when the baby had been born.
He said: "Peaches and Thomas are delighted to announce the birth of their son Astala, both were overjoyed at his arrival this week."
Peaches - whose father is Boomtown Rats frontman Bob Geldof - previously revealed she had been due to give birth on April 24, the birthday of her late mother Paula Yates, who died from a drugs overdose in 2000.
She said: "It was amazing for me when they told me that, very emotional and touching and just really beautiful. I was so happy.
"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."
