In March 2020, legendary rocker Bob Geldof opened up about the "unbearable" grief after losing a child in an emotional interview on Irish television.

He said: "Last week I went to the funeral of my mate's son. And he didn't want me to come for fear that I had to relive it. But I had to be there for him because it is unbearable.

"Time doesn't heal, time accommodates and it's ever present.

"You're driving along and you're at the traffic lights and for no reason whatsoever, the person in question inhabits you and I'll cry.

‘’And then I'll look around to make sure the people next door don't see me or are taking a photo and posting it or something.

"But that happens and that happens to everyone. And so you say, 'ok it's time to cry now'.

"You just do it to the maximum because there's no use holding it in.

"Lights are green, or whatever, and then you go. That'll always be there and you accommodate that.

"Once you understand the nature of this because it is boundless and it is bottomless. The grief and the abyss is infinite."

How many children did she have with Thomas Cohen?

Peaches Geldof had two children with musician Thomas Cohen – whom she married in 2012.

The pair welcomed Astala Dylan Willow Geldof-Cohen in 2012 and Phaedra Bloom Forever Geldof-Cohen in 2013.

In March 2017, Cohen opened up about the moment he discovered his wife Peaches dead at their home.

In a candid new interview with German newspaper Bild, he said: "When I found her, I was not surprised. I thought to myself at the moment: 'Yes of course – you had to do that.'

"The routine I had to keep up with the children helped me a lot.

“They have lived longer than they knew their mother. They were just one and two years. Now they are four and five.”
