S.C.U.M's Thomas Cohen and Peaches Geldof have announced the birth of their first child.

Peaches Geldof initially tweeted:



Before later adding:



The couple also released a statement saying: "Peaches and Thomas are delighted to announce the birth of their son Astala. Both were overjoyed at his arrival this week."

Tom Cohen, the lead singer of S.C.U.M, also tweeted:



Earlier this year the Daily Mirror reported that the pair had confirmed their plans to get hitched in the future - but admitted they won’t be saying their vows for a couple of years yet.

Peaches said: "Yes, I’m engaged! We don’t want to get married for a couple of years yet though so don’t expect me in a dress yet. I’m so happy."

Meanwhile, Cohen takes to the road next month with his band SCUM. The band will be supporting The Vaccines on their UK seaside tour. The jaunt kicks off in Dundee's Caird Hall on May 2 before wrapping up with a gig at Brighton Centre on May 7.
