Sir Bob Geldof says his family is 'beyond pain' in the wake of the death of his daughter, Peaches Geldof.

BBC News reported Monday emergency responders were unable to save a 25-year-old woman who was discovered during a welfare check at an address near Wrotham, Kent that afternoon.

In a statement released to the network, the Boomtown Rats musician confirms the woman was his daughter with the late Paula Yates.

"We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said.

"How is this possible that we will not see her again?"

Details surrounding Peaches' death remain unclear.

"At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained and sudden," Kent Police said in a statement.

Peaches is survived by her father, her husband of 19 months, Thomas Cohen, and their two sons, Astala Dylan Willow, 23 months, and Phaedra Bloom Forever, 11 months.

'My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons," Thomas said in a statement to BBC.

"I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts everyday. We shall love her forever."

Peaches also leaves behind sisters Fifi Trixibelle and Pixie, as well as half-sister, Tiger Lily Hutchence Geldof.

The ITV presenter and model lost her own mother, Paula, to a fatal drug overdose in 2000, when she was just 11.

She spoke to Elle magazine in 2012 about the difficulties of accepting her death.

"I remember the day my mother died, and it's still hard to talk about it. I just blocked it out. I went to school the next day because my father's mentality was 'keep calm and carry on'," she revealed.

"So we all went to school and tried to act as if nothing had happened. But it had happened. I didn't grieve. I didn't cry at her funeral. I couldn't express anything because I was just numb to it all. I didn't start grieving for my mother properly until I was maybe 16."

The last tweet posted by Peaches was on Sunday. It was a photo of herself as a baby in her mother's arms.
'Me and my mum,' she wrote.
