Posing up a storm in this week's Hello! Magazine, Peaches opens up about giving birth on what would have been her mother, Paula Yates', 54th birthday.

Cradling Phaedra in her arms, the 24-year-old looks super relaxed as she lounges on a wrought iron gold bed.

Peaches told the magazine she had no idea her son would share the same birthday as her mum - who died from a drug overdose when Peaches was 11 - instead saying it was simply down to "crazy synchronicity".

She said: "[Choosing a specific date] wasn't an option. Maybe it is if you go private, but we didn't and were given the date randomly by a consultant.

"I was pretty amazed when I read it though, and had to smile. I couldn't help feeling Mum must have had a hand in it."

Peaches' first son, one-year-old Astala, was also due on April 24th - but the date was moved forward so that she could have an C-section.

She said: "It's like Mum was very determined that one of her grandsons would be born on her birthday. There's this kind of crazy synchronicity to it."

Peaches also says she's more than aware of her bizarre name choice, even admitting she and husband Tom Cohen, 22, chose to stick with her family's tradition by picking the "ridiculous" name.

She added: "I wouldn't be a Geldof if I didn't get stick in the press about my ridiculous choice of names. I've got to uphold the family tradition.

"We chose Bloom because my middle name is Honeyblossom and also in homage to the Nirvana song In Bloom. 'Forever' we chose purely because it sounds cool.

"I love his name and think he sounds like a rock star. We liked Phaedra because it features in a song both Tom and I love by Lee Hazlewood, called Some Velvet Morning.

"It's nothing to do with some band called Tangerine Dream, as has been reported. I've never heard them."

The full interview is in this week's issue of Hello! Magazine, which is on sale now.
