Peaches Geldof gives birth to second son - report

British socialite Peaches Geldof has welcomed a second son, who was born on the same day as her late mom Paula Yates.

Bob Geldof's 24-year-old daughter opted to have a Caesarean section on Wednesday (24Apr13), according to Britain's The Sun. The star and her husband Thomas Cohen have reportedly named the tot Phaedra.


A source tells the newspaper, "They are absolutely over the moon about their new arrival. It all went smoothly and Peaches will be in hospital for a while to recuperate. Bob is absolutely over the moon - the whole family are."


It is a second son for the couple - they welcomed Astala almost exactly a year ago (Apr12). The tot was also due to share a birthday with TV star Yates, who died of a heroin overdose in 2000, but he was born early.
