Peaches Geldof, the second daughter of musician Bob Geldof and Paula Yates, has died at age 25.

“We are beyond pain,” her father said, BBC News reported. “She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us.”

“What a beautiful child,” he said. “How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable?”

Police in Kent are currently treating the death as “unexplained and sudden,” the report said.

Ms. Geldof attended a launch for Tesco’s F&F clothing range just last week in London.

Her last tweet, posted Sunday, was a picture of her as a baby in her mother’s arms.

Ms. Geldof lost her mother, Paula, when she was just 11 years old to a drug overdose in 2000.

The writer and TV presenter was married to musician Thomas Cohen.

“My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons,” he said in a statement, BBC News reported. “I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts everyday. We shall love her forever.”

Ms. Geldof also leaves behind two sons, Astala, 1, and Phaedra, who will turn 1 this month.
