Couple 'overjoyed' with birth of baby boy Astala
S.C.U.M's Thomas Cohen and Peaches Geldof have announced the birth of their first child.
The frontman of the London indie band and the daughter of Live Aid organiser Bob Geldof announced the birth of baby boy Astala on their Twitter profiles last night (April 21).
Peaches Geldof initially tweeted:
Yes, its true- I'M A MUMMY!!!!— Peaches Geldof (@peaches_g) April 21, 2012
Before later adding:
My little boy is the most beautiful thing in this world. When he holds @tomfromscum's finger with his hand its the sweetest thing ever. X— Peaches Geldof (@peaches_g) April 21, 2012
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.
