Peaches Geldof: “Yes, I’m engaged!”

Peaches Geldof has big news to celebrate – she’s finally admitted she’s engaged to boyfriend Thomas Cohen.
The star confessed all to me this week when we hit the fabulous Gareth Pugh for MAC launch party at the University of Westminster. And she couldn’t help but gush about how her life has come around full circle of late.
“Yes I’m engaged,” the newly svelte star beamed. “It happened six months ago but we are only just making it public now. We don’t want to get married for a couple of years yet and I knew what people would say. We first met four years ago and we bumped into each other last Christmas on Portobello Road and started dating again and that’s where he asked me. It was very romantic and I’m really happy. We don’t want to get married for a couple of years yet though so don’t expect me in a wedding dress for a long time.”
After, it’s fair to say, a rocky few years she’s looking fantastic, is happier than ever before and has ditched the nightlife she craved so badly when she emerged as a wild child teen all those years ago. It must be a weight off father Sir Bob Geldof’s mind that peaches has changed her wild ways. She’s even bought a house with her boy Tom – who plays in a band called S.C.U.M.
“We’ve just bought a beautiful 3-bed Victorian house in London,” Peaches added. “I’ve spent the whole of today trying to sort getting a mortgage – it’s such a strange adult territory! And it’s been a real bitch getting it too. They nearly didn’t let me have it – maybe it’s probably because they recognised me. It’s the perfect place and size for me and my fiancé and we got it pretty cheap for what it should have cost.
“I can’t wait to start decorating it. I’m obsessed with buying vintage sofas off of Ebay for £200. I now have five of them! Tom came round my flat today which is tiny and you can barely move from all the sofas I’ve bought.”
I couldn’t be happier for Peaches and let’s hope this marriage is more successful than her first. Peach really had us all gasping in horror when she ran away to las Vegas with boyfriend Max Drummey in August 2008 and got hitched on a whim. She divorced Max, who still remains a friend, after just six months. But this time it seems like the real thing. “These days I just sit indoors and nest,” she laughed. “I’ve left all my crazy years behind me. I’m just a really happy girl looking towards a great future now.”  I’ll raise a glass to that.
