25 year old TV presenter and a columnist for a magazine company Peaches Geldof, who is also the second daughter of musician Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates, has died yesterday, leaving a husband and two sons.
She had had recently become a columnist for Mother & Baby magazine. Below is what she revealed:
“I lived a life of wanton wanderlust. With fun loving friends from Los Angeles to London, I was lost in a haze of youth and no responsibilities.
“Other than work there was nothing stopping me from having constant fun. But it was becoming boring, I wanted an anchor – I craved it. And when I had two wailing, smiling, joyful little blobs of waddling pink flesh they became my entire existence and saved me from one of pure apathy.”
She later wrote: “Everything else was nothingness – I had the perfect life, two babies who loved me more than anything. It was and is bliss.”
Miss Geldof wrote the column before her last birthday, adding: “Now with a newfound group of mummy mates, both locally and online, all with the exact same struggles and issues and who don’t question if my child flings food at their hair or care if there’s a screaming fit in the middle of the street – I’m happier than ever.
“My real old friends have stuck by me and connect me to my old life (I sometimes forget I’m only 24), treating me to nights out that let me forget about dirty nappies at least for a minute. So I’ve achieved a sort of perfect balance. Right now life is good. And being a mum is the best part of it.”
