Sir Bob Geldoff had some wise words for his daughter Peaches and her fiancé Thomas Cohen after they revealed her pregnancy to the Irish musician on boxing day.

According to a recent interview in Hello! magazine, Sir Bob told the couple to get married and to never split up, with an overjoyed reaction to the good news.

Peaches told the publication: “I knew he would be happy but I didn’t realise how ever the moon he would be.

“He’s always been supportive of me but he was really overwhelmed and emotional.”

The young couple were pictured looking particular mature, with Peaches appearing well beyond her 22-years in an off-green maternity gown and long gold earrings.

It was also a welcome surprise to the mum-to-be to learn that her baby was due on the day of her late mother’s birthday.

Peaches and Tom managed to keep the pregnancy under wraps for five months before telling their family, and the newest addition to family is due on April 24th.
