‘Peaches is utterly thrilled and they have the full support of both of their families who are equally excited for the baby’s arrival.’
Peaches met Cohen four years ago and they announced their engagement on December 11.
She was previously married to musician Max Drummey and they tied the knot in secret in a drive-in ceremony in Las Vegas after a 10-day romance.
But their union ended in divorce after just six months in 2009 and she recently insisted she was in no rush to tie the knot with Cohen just yet.
‘We first met four years ago and we bumped into each other last Christmas (2009) on Portobello Road in Notting Hill, London, and started dating again – and that’s also where he asked me. It was romantic. I’m really happy.
‘But we don’t want to get married for a couple of years yet.’
