Peaches Geldof expecting second child

Bob Geldof's 23-year-old daughter has announced she is expecting a little boy again, just seven months after she gave birth to first son Astala in April.

The mum-to-be, who married rocker boyfriend Thomas Cohen in September, has revealed she's planning to name the tot Phaedra.

She tells Hello! magazine: "It's a name that comes from an ancient Greek play but it also features in a song Tom and I both love called Some Velvet Morning by Lee Hazlewood. Finding out I was pregnant again so soon was quite a shock. Tom was so happy. He loves being a dad so much and is brilliant with Astala, who totally adores him, so he was over the moon."

Geldof admits she had a "momentary panic" after she found out she was pregnant, but admits she's thrilled her family is growing.

She adds: "After Phaedra is born I'm going to be concentrating on the two boys so I don't think I'll be adding to our little brood until later on in my life when I'm older and don't have two toddlers running around demanding all of Tom's and my attention. I may be only 23 and the only one of our friends who's married, got a baby and one on the way... but it's a life I've dreamed of and I couldn't be happier."
