Bob Geldof is engagedThere's a silver lining in the cloud that's currently casting a shadow over Bob Geldof's life: He's engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Jeanne Marine. The couple's mutual friend, Jerry Hall, recently told the Daily Mail the happy news (via WENN)."Bob has proposed. She is over the moon," Hall said. As for the recent death of Geldof's daughter, Peaches, Hall said Marine has been an important support system to the family."Jeanne Marine has been a rock and a tower of strength over this," she said. "I'm so excited for her I am bursting to tell someone. Bob and Jeanne have been through hell, but they are determined something positive will come out of it. After all the sadness, we need something to focus on which will bring joy and light … I'm so happy for her. It makes you realize we all have to value what we have."The announcement comes on the heels of news that Peaches Geldof's sudden death was likely due to a heroin overdose, sustained while she was at home with her young son. The TV host and writer's mother, Paula Yates, died under similar circumstances.RELATED: Celebs gone too soon
