1.       The socialite has two very beautiful and really young children who will miss her mother in their upbringing. Peaches' sons, Astala, 20 months, and Phaedra, 10 months, are seen on her Instagram page.

2.       Peaches was a British socialite, journalist and even a model. She was born and brought up in public eye. She had written articles for Elle Girl, The Guardian, & The Daily Telegraph.

3.       Peaches' father was Bob Geldof, who was singer of the Boomtown Rats & well known activist. He was married to Paula Yates, a well-known British journalist.

7.       Her mother' death left a deep impact on Peaches mind and she talked to Elle about it in an earlier interview. "I remember the day my mother died, and it's still hard to talk about it. I just blocked it out.. I didn't grieve. I didn't cry at her funeral...I couldn't express anything because I was numb to it all. I don't blame her, I'm not angry with her, I understand her. I honestly understand what she was going through," Peaches said in a previous interview.

8.       Peaches married drummer Max Drummey, 24 at a tender age of 19 without her father's knowledge. However the couple soon broke up after 6 months.  

9.       Peaches became a mommy first and then married Thomas Cohen, lead singer of band S.C.U.M wearing just a lace dress and a crown made of daises.

"My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons Astala and Phaedra and I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts every day. We shall love her forever. Thomas, Astala and Phaedra Geldof-Cohen," Cohen said in a statement.
