Tragic British socialite Peaches Geldof declared her love for her two infant sons in a poignant interview just weeks before her death.

Bob Geldof's 25-year-old daughter was pronounced dead at her home in Kent, England on Monday, leaving behind her rocker husband Thomas Cohen, and two boys Astala, who turns two later this month, and Phaedra, 12 months.

Geldof had just landed a new job as a columnist for Britain's Mother & Baby magazine, and her debut piece on attachment parenting was published in the April issue.

She also gave an interview to the magazine in which she discussed her own parenting issues, revealing she often "cried with exhaustion" while carrying out her duties as a mother, but added, "That's what being a mum is. It's not easy. It can be stressful, but it's the most rewarding thing you will do."

Geldof went on to describe her overwhelming love for her two sons, adding, "Since I've had the boys, I don't think of the world as a negative place any more. I just have so much love. And, through my love for them, I've been reborn into a better, more understanding, more patient person - I feel like an adult."

After news of her death broke, the magazine's editors released a statement paying tribute to the star: "We are extremely saddened at the tragic news that Peaches Geldof has died. Our hearts and sympathies are with her family and two little boys."

As officials continue to investigate the cause of the tragedy, Geldof's devastated elder sister Fifi Trixibelle took to her account on Instagram.com on Tuesday to post a childhood picture of the two alongside the touching message, "My beautiful baby sister... Gone but never forgotten. I love you, Peaches x"

Also on Tuesday, Bob Geldof's fellow Live Aid organizer Midge Ure recalled his shock at the tragic news and how, for him, it echoes the death of Peaches' mother Paula Yates, who passed away from an accidental drug overdose in 2000 at the age of 41.

He tells Sky News, "I think disbelief is the first sensation you get and when you check it on the Internet and television, I think the horror is just astounding. She was great, she was a bouncy, lovely child... (Paula Yates) was this 'earth mother' and that's exactly what Peaches has turned into.

"It's uncanny. The fact that Peaches posted that photograph of Paula and her together the day before it happened, and the fact that they embraced this whole motherhood thing so incredibly well after what had been maybe ropey (difficult) beginnings, they had completely found their niche in life. A tragedy to happen twice in slightly different circumstances is just beyond belief."

Peaches posted a picture of herself as a toddler in her mother's arms on her Instagram.com page just a day before she passed away.

A post mortem examination to establish the cause of death is expected to take place on Wednesday.
