Peaches Geldof — Her Final Moments With Her Kids
Peaches’ sons, Astala, 23 months, and Phaedra, 11 months, are two precious little boys with bright blond hair and chubby cheeks. Just hours before the socialite-turned-model’s sudden and mysterious death, Peaches shared a handful of pictures and video of both boys on Instagram.
The final two videos shared by Peaches show her playing peek-a-boo with her youngest son, Phadera. Peaches voice is joyful as she teases the infant, and he happily laughs along at the game his mommy is playing.
Each video is a heartbreaking reminder of the tragic loss her children have suffered that will affect them for the rest of their lives.
UPDATE: Sadly, Peaches’ Instagram was deleted on April 8, one day after her tragic death. Therefore, the videos of Peaches playing peek-a-boo with her children are no longer available.
Peaches Paid Tribute To Her Mom Before Dying
Peaches’ own mother, Paula Yates, died on Oct. 17, 2000 — Pixie Geldof‘s 10th birthday. At the time, Peaches was only 11 years old.
Paula was found dead in her home of an apparent heroin overdose. The coroner who performed the autopsy stated that Paula’s death was not a suicide, but a result of “foolish and incautious” behavior.
Though the cause of Peaches death is still unknown, it is widely rumored that she suffered from the same drug problem as her mother.
On the day Peaches died, she posted an old photo of her and her mom on Instagram.
Our continued thoughts are with the entire Geldof family, especially Peaches two sons and her husband, Thomas Cohen.
