Peaches Geldof, daughter of musician Bob Geldof and a British model and TV personality, has died at age 25.

Police found her inside a building in the Kent area of England on Monday, April 7 after receiving a "report of concern for the welfare of a woman," BBC News said. Paramedics later pronounced her dead. Her father's agent confirmed that Peaches had died in a statement to the Associated Press.

"At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained and sudden," Kent Police told BBC News in statement.

Peaches, whose full name was Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof, worked as a model over the past six years and was a past spokemodel for Miss Ultimo lingerie. She has appeared on shows such as "This Morning" and "The Xtra Factor." When she was a teenager, she contributed articles to UK newspaper The Telegraph.

Peaches is survived by her father Bob Geldof -- an Irish singer known for his former band The Boomtown Rats' 1970s hits "Rat Trap" and "I Don't Like Mondays," husband and musician Thomas Cohen, their two sons Astala and Phaedra, sisters Fifi Trixibelle and Pixie, and a younger half-sister, Tiger Lily Hutchence Geldof.

Peaches' mother, Paula Yates, died of a drug overdose in September 2000. Her last tweet was posted on Sunday -- it contains a link to an Instagram photo that shows her as a child, with her mother, and the caption: "Me and my mum." (See below) She also shared two pictures of her children.
