Birthday girl Geri Halliwell has cake for breakfast during seaside family holiday

Happy Birthday Geri Halliwell! The former Spice Girl celebrated her 43rd birthday on Thursday with her husband Christian Horner and daughter Bluebell on a family trip to Cornwall.

The birthday girl kicked off her special day with a slice of birthday cake which she showed off to her fans on Instagram. The incredible creation was shaped to look like the beach with a blue beach hut and towel resting on top, and the words "Happy Birthday Geri" written on icing around the edge.

I ate cake for breakfast! Well it's my birthday ! X

"I ate cake for breakfast! Well it's my birthday! X" Geri captioned the photo, which shows her smiling as she looks down at her gift.

The 43-year-old later showed off a home-made present she received from her nine-year-old daughter Bluebell - a painting which said "Even Cornwall isn't as pretty as you."

"From Bluebell. Awh," the proud mum shared.

Geri kept her 373,000 Twitter followers updated through her special day, sharing pictures from her coastal walk before posting a snap of herself smiling happily with F1 boss husband Christian.

We having drink at a cute pub. Then back on the walk. Having a lovely birthday. 😊

Geri has been in Cornwall on a family getaway for the past few days and has tried her hand at surfing and playing table tennis while down on the south coast.

The holiday follows Geri 's busy few weeks in the studio recording her first solo album in ten years. The Look at Me singer recently told fans she was recording the last two songs from her comeback album, saying it "feels pretty good".

Giving Geri even more reason to smile is her husband Christian, whom she married in a romantic ceremony in Bedfordshire on 15 May. The couple were joined by their friends and family for their special day before jetting off to Cannes for their honeymoon.
