Mum-to-be Geri Horner has stepped out to show off her blossoming baby bump, only hours after announcing she’s pregnant with her second child.
The 44-year-old former Spice Girl couldn’t wait to debut her growing tum alongside a very special pal – fellow Spice Girl Emma Bunton. And from the looks of things, Emma couldn’t be more thrilled for her expectant friend!
The duo were attending the Attitude Awards alongside their partners – Geri’s husband Christian Horner and Emma’s partner Jade Jones. Speaking about their impending arrival, Emma said: ‘I’ve known for a while and I’ve had to keep it a secret, so it’s wonderful that it is out in the open.
‘I’m over the moon, she is going to be an amazing mum, for the second time.
‘I’ll be babysitting but we are all working mums so she doesn’t need any advice from me. It’s very exciting.’
Geri, who is married to Red Bull Formula 1 Team Principal Christian Horner, first shared the happy news on Instagram, calling herself ‘Mama Spice’ accompanied with a cartoon drawing of a pregnant woman.
She even referenced her classic hit ‘It’s Raining Men’ with the line ‘God bless mother nature’.
In a statement, Geri’s representatives confirmed the news, saying that the new parents are overjoyed. It said: ‘Spice Girl Geri Horner (née Halliwell), 44, and husband Christian Horner OBE, 42, are absolutely delighted to announce they are expecting their first child together. The couple is overjoyed with the good news and cannot wait to welcome the newest addition to their family.’
Geri already has a 10-year-old daughter called Bluebell from a former relationship, while husband Christian has a three-year-old daughter. The new baby will be the couple’s first child together.
Geri, 44, and Christian, 42, married in May 2015 with Bluebell as bridesmaid.
Speaking about their relationship, Geri previously told the Mirror: ‘My husband is my best friend. He knows me inside out, I don’t edit myself with him. It was a big learning curve.’
Geri has previously spoken out about the potential of adding to their family and even considered adoption. She told the Mirror, ‘If it happens it happens and that will be amazing. But we are already blessed with two girls.
‘We might think about adoption but to be honest, we know we are so lucky
and so happy with things as they are, you have to realise when not to
push your luck.’
What lovely news, Geri and Christian are clearly over the moon. Congratulations!
