Peaches Geldof is already 3 months pregnant again, 6 months after giving birth

Peaches Geldof is the new Tori Spelling! Peaches has just announced her second pregnancy, just six months after Peaches welcomed son Astala. Peaches is already 3-and-a-half months pregnant. Meaning she got pregnant when Astala was like 2-and-a-half months old. Meaning Peaches and her husband Tom Cohen need a hobby other than boning. Still, it happens and it’s happy news for the couple. Apparently, they already have a name picked out – Phaedra. Because why not?

Peaches Geldof is expecting her second child with husband Tom Cohen. The 23-year-old star is three-and-a-half months pregnant with a baby boy, and the couple have already picked out a name for their little bundle of joy, Phaedra, which is inspired by an ancient Greek play and one of the pair’s favourite songs.

But with the couple only having welcomed their first son, Astala, into the world six months ago, Peaches admitted finding out she was pregnant again so quickly came as ‘quite a shock’.

She told Hello! magazine: ‘I did have a momentary panic and go, ‘Oh my God, we’re going to have a one-year-old and a one-month-old! How will we cope?’

However, the television presenter explained her rocker beau immediately alleviated her doubts.

She added: ‘Tom was so supportive and relaxed, it banished my doubts and I started imagining the two boys growing up together as the best of friends. There are massive benefits to having two children so close together.’

Peaches admitted she only took a test when she noticed she had been craving sour sweets as she had been throughout her first pregnancy, and she had already begun to develop a baby bump. The former wild child also explained while she ‘couldn’t be happier’ with her family life, she doesn’t plan on adding to her brood any time soon.

She told Hello!: ‘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 on the way and is on the verge of moving to Surrey, but it’s a life I always dreamed of and I couldn’t be happier.’

Despite her happy news, Peaches, the daughter of Sir Bob Geldof, recently revealed that prior to falling pregnant, she was told she would never be able to have children.

The doting mother-of-one knew conceiving would be difficult as she suffered from polycystic ovaries, and then experienced further problems three years ago when she was rushed to hospital after an ectopic pregnancy.

She told Elle magazine: ‘I was really upset because I always knew I wanted kids and then I was told I would need major intervention if that was to happen.’

Of her ectopic pregnancy, she added: ‘I woke up in the night in the worst pain. It was like something was ripping me apart. I had no idea I was pregnant. I was taken to hospital and they discovered what it was. I was told if I had left it even three more days I would have died. But I had to have an operation and the doctor told me he’d have to remove my fallopian tube. I was crying and begging him not to. I woke up, he told me he’d saved the tube but it was badly damaged and my chances of having kids had gone from slim to almost non-existent.’

[From The Mail]

Agent Bedhead thinks that this ectopic pregnancy happened when Peaches was with Eli Roth, which would probably fit the timeline and go a long way to explaining why suddenly Peaches and Eli were done and Peaches was immediately with Tom Cohen. Eli bolted when things got too real, and Peaches probably thought that there was little chance she was going to get knocked up. Two surprise babies within less than 2 years? Epic.

    Well, at least she’s capable. Lots of women cant have even one, so…. slow clap? 😛 lol

  2. kristin says:

    LOVE PHAEDRA. One of those names I always keep as a potential baby name, that and Drew’s Olive.
    But geez that was fast.

  3. Boo says:

    Well. Good for them. Baby Astala is cute in the sleeping-with-Daddy pic, though he looks a little too much like Karl Rove in others.

  4. Tina says:

    That is one cute baby. She seems like she’s doing okay now. Good for her, and good for her poor dad – he must have worried sick over these girls.

    Congrats to the little family!

  5. brin says:

    Hope she won’t be known as the drugged out Duggar.

  6. fabgrrl says:

    Dude! That chubby little baby has a head nearly the same size as his parents’!

  7. Relli says:

    You know i was all ready to snark, but that is one cute chubby baby, i love the one of him & the dog! Thats so sad about her miscarriage, i know a few women that has happened to, so difficult! Her family looks beautiful, i hope she is able to keep it altogether and be a great parent.

  8. Marianne says:

    Irish Twins.

    Well Good Luck to her, that will be hard raising two kids that close in age.

    • Esmom says:

      Yes. But hopefully the kids will be best buddies. My kids are 19 months apart and the close age gap has been amazing for them developing a strong friendship, in comparison to my relationship with my sister who’s 5 years younger than me.

      • Bluedog says:

        Two of my kids are15 months apart, and even though they are different genders they’ve always been best friends and still are although they’re basically grown.

    • Lady D says:

      My mom was pregnant with me 6 weeks after my brother was born. The day I turned 1 she died, 8 1/2 months pregnant.

  9. Kimble says:

    What a gorgeous, happy, chubby baby …

  10. Blue says:

    Holy I can’t imagine going through 2 pregnancies in 2 years but congratulations to her. I would be over the moon with joy if I had her odds of ever getting pregnant and ended up with 2.

  11. Reece says:

    That is one cute little butterball!
    I love that name. Not necessarily for a boy but alright.

  12. Gina says:

    That baby makes my ovaries ache! LOL god what a doll!

  13. Anonny says:

    How can she possibly know it’s a girl this early? Or is she crazy enough to name a boy Phaedra? Ok, don’t answer that…

    • Rachel says:

      The article says she’s having another boy… so…

    • L says:

      I was wondering that to. I thought you didn’t find out the sex until the 20 week scan, and if she’s only 3 months along how could she know?

      • teenydj says:

        The sex organs can be visible as early as 12 weeks, and she’s three and a half months along, so it’s totally possible.

        When I was pregnant I was dying to find out the babies’ genders ASAP so I could start shopping. 🙂 I had to have weekly ultrasounds, so once we hit that 12 week mark I’d harass them every time to look for little boy or girl parts, but none were obvious till week 16. A month of shopping lost!

      • Belle says:

        Most doctors like to wait for the 20 week ultrasound, but you can tell earlier, depending on the positioning of the baby. A good ultrasound tech and/or doctor can usually tell at 12 weeks, if they get the right angle(;

        edit to add… sorry, teenydj, I was posting at the same time as you.

      • truetalk says:

        chances of getting the sex wrong are higher before 20wks

      • fabgrrl says:

        Well, maybe they did an early amniocentesis? to look for something else and got the gender while they were at it?

      • LittleMissSunshine says:

        There’s a blood test you can do at 12 or 13 weeks to find out gender. But gender is also sometimes visible on the ultrasound that early (we found out at 13 weeks that we’re having a girl).

      • Marianne says:

        Perhaps she knew when she conceived as well.

        If you have sex at the beginning of ovulation, you have an 80% chance of having a girl, and 80% chance of having a boy if you have sex more towards the end of the ovulation.

    • Anonny says:

      You can have a CVS as early as 10 weeks, but that’s for high-risk pregnancies.

      And Phaedra is a girl’s name, so she’s just an idiot.

  14. serena says:

    I’m happy for her, also she does post some really cute photos.

  15. Eleonor says:

    Phaedra is an ancient greek name, I love it but: it makes me think to Phaedra’s myth which is quite sad; and is a female name!

  16. alice / jane says:

    I’m pretty positive that Phaedra is a female name..

  17. LAK says:

    I can’t get over how much her husband looks like her father. It really, really creeps me out.

    I also worry that everything she’s talked about her new family life is an echo of Paula’s attempts to create an idealic childhood to compensate for her own( Paula’s) terrible childhood.

    My heart broke for her when she talked about their broken family life AFTER Michael came into the picture, though I am not putting any blame on anyone here.

    I really hope that her attempts at this idealic family life succeed where Paula failed.

    • Miss Kiki says:

      I came here to say the exact same thing. I think that her hubby looks uncannily like Bob in his younger days.

      • Christina says:

        Not just me then! I was going to say the exact same thing! I did a double take when I saw that picture – he looks scarily like Geldof circa 1978 (yes, I’m old enough to remember!)

  18. Eileen says:

    Love the baby photos- the one with the father is heart melting! Congrats to the both if them ( glad it ain’t me!)

  19. Eileen says:

    Love the baby photos- the one with the father is heart melting! Congrats to them

  20. Eileen says:

    Love the baby photos- the one with the father is so sweet!

  21. Lem says:

    That’s the thing. If I had a nickel for every friend that ‘couldn’t get pregnant’ but then did…
    I wonder what the statistics are on doctor’s telling young women they won’t get pregnant. I know for me, it was a matter of not using birth control. Condoms for protection, yes. Extra birth control, no.
    Yet when I shockingly found out (funny story) I was extremely pregnant with my daughter that doctor said the first 4 doctors whom had given me a list of reasons that I would never concieve were full of it. My son confirmed this.
    What they should have told me was “you’re fertile every three years.”

    • fabgrrl says:

      Yeah, I knew a girl in high school who was told she would never get pregnant after a childhood illness. She and her long term boyfriend stopped using condoms, and bammo! pregnant. She was still in high school, so it was not exactly great news.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        My friend had a Fallopian tube removed after an ectopic pregnancy and she is now going to my reproductive endocrinologist to become pregnant. The first time she was able to conceive without help, but now she is having trouble due to the missing tube. I have PCOS (which is what peaches claims she has) and can not conceive without the help of fertility meds. Perhaps she was diagnosed incorrectly, because I’ve never heard of someone with PCOS and a damaged fallopian tube being THIS fertile.

    • Lem says:

      Mort: I can’t say I was ever specifically diagnosed. Maybe, I was young. I was told they had never seen cysts that invasive. I was told my uterus also tipped too far backward.
      For example: I have a dozen cousins with equally cyst-y ovaries. PCOS claims to be largely genetic. Not only did our mother’s concieve us – we are a fertile bunch. All told we’d never have children. We have 2 eptopics, 3 removed tubes, 7 miscarriages(?) 1 round of fertility (Dr. assured her the damage was so great she’d never carry again- her Irish triplets disagree)
      Grandma had 6 in 13 straight pregnancies. 6 bred 14. 8 of which, all hospitalized for cysts at some point, now have 15 with 2 on the way. To be honest they’re just getting started, most of them are just about that age.
      My point is doctor’s told ALL of us we’d never concieve. As FAB pointed out above, that is a very dangerous thing to tell a teenage girl!!
      Only one of us would claim to have fertility issues because none of us were actively trying to get pregnant. We only actively focused on NOT getting pregnant, like any good catholic 😉
      Oddly- all of our respective children are either 9 months or 3 years apart.

  22. Shitler says:

    Is she a rabbit? Anyway congrats. She makes cute babies

  23. little-red says:

    Look at the chubs! Love it

  24. Barbara says:

    Isn’t this the girl that dumped the baby on the sidewalk out of it’s stroller, and kept on with her cell call before scooping him up. Scary that she is having another baby.

  25. Jen34 says:

    My aunt lost a Fallopian tube and was pregnant with twins within 3 months. I guess, though, that it cuts your monthly chance of get pregnant in half.

    People often forget to use birth control post pregnancy. Perhaps it doesn’t occur to them that they can get pregnant again so soon after giving birth. In any case, congrats.

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      It happens, but peaches claims to have PCOS AND Fallopian tube damage (which greatly decreases her chances of becoming pregnant each cycle). I’m guessing she was misdiagnosed by careless doctors or she is exaggerating her condition to garner sympathy.

    • Velouria says:

      Losing a fallopian tube only reduces your chances by 5% (I did the same thing…you still ovulate every month and still can fertilize the egg on each side with one tube) it’s only with ONE ovary does it reduce your chances to 50%.

  26. Rio says:

    That is one happy baby! I’ve always loved the name Phaedra, even though I don’t have a drop of Greek in me and the origin of the name comes from a pretty dark myth.

  27. Ginger says:

    That is actually a really inspiring story…good for her and her family! Congrats! I wish I could have had a second child. She is really lucky!

  28. Jacq says:

    If this is the case, I sure hope the blinds about her lingering heroin addiction aren’t true…

  29. some bitch says:

    That last picture is just adorable.

    Hope she stays healthy and clean. :\

  30. Michelle says:

    I was told I’d never carry to term, but I have one fchild who was fully baked and another on the way. I can’t believe she’s pregnant again s soon, mine will be 20 months and everyone thinks I’m nuts. I have a friend who found out at 15 weeks, so less than four months, so it’s possible.

  31. velvet says:

    Phaedra is the name of the main character in the Kushiel series by Jacqueline Carey

    I enjoyed that series and her subsequent books immensely.

    I wonder if the elf quest couple (they look remarkable like characters from the old elf quest comics, particularly him) are fans?

  32. skuddles says:

    That is one chubby-cheeked cutie pie!

    • cubfan34 says:

      Lee Hazelwood and Nancy Sinatra had a a hit record called Some Velvet Morning where they sing about a woman named Phaedra.

      Some velvet mornin’ when I’m straight
      I’m gonna open up your gate
      And maybe tell you ’bout Phaedra
      And how she gave me life
      And how she made it end
      Some velvet mornin’ when I’m straight

  33. Amanda says:

    Is having “Irish twins” some kind of trend in Hollywood now? The even weirder thing is it seems to be the women who don’t think they can have kids/more kids who are having kids so close in age.

  34. INeedANap says:

    That dog is the star of these pictures, he looks appalled that they’re taking pictures of him. Adorable!

  35. Suzy from Ontario says:

    I joined her Twitter feed because I was curious about her and I have to say I’m impressed. They seem to be really loving parents who clearly adore their little boy. They also don’t have a nanny and do it themselves, which I applaud them for when so many rich folk use multiple nannies to cover every hour of the day and night and can’t even take their baby to the park by themselves.

    I’m not crazy about the name(s) they choose but hey, a lot of people weren’t crazy about the names I chose for my kids. Whatever. A name is just a name and trends come and go. If the parents like it and it has meaning for them, it’s no one else’s business really. Besides, these days there are a lot of kids with less common (and downright strange) names so I think it’s less important and doesn’t stand out the way it used to.

    I think she’s turned her life around and created a family with a guy who seems to have a really kind heart. She had some rough breaks growing up and creating a solid family for herself and her children is really important for her. I can relate to that because I felt the same way after growing up in a very dysfunctional family. You want to create the safe and loving family and home you didn’t have. More power to her!

    Oh my gosh – that last pic of Peaches and Astala is adorable. He looks like a fat, middle-aged plumber.
