(Newser) – British model, TV presenter, and socialite Peaches Geldof is dead at age 25. Police were called to an address in Kent, England, over "concern for the welfare of a woman" there today, and Geldof was later pronounced dead by paramedics, the BBC reports. Geldof, daughter of musician Bob Geldof and TV presenter Paula Yates (who died of a drug overdose when Peaches was 11), was married to a musician and had two young sons with him. "We are beyond pain," said Bob Geldof in a statement. "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest, and the most bonkers of all of us. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable?" Police say that her death is "being treated as unexplained and sudden."
