Geri Horner has met her fair share of famous faces throughout her career, with the most recent being Mickey Mouse! The former Spice Girl posted a video of her sharing a hug with the iconic Disney character while at Disney On Ice, captioned: “Hello Mickey.” The star looked to be having a wonderful time in Mickey's company, even coordinating with him in black, styled with a vibrant red handbag. The mum-of-two has enjoyed a busy few weeks, attending the Queen’s Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey earlier in the month with her ten-year-old daughter, Bluebell.

Along with Bluebell, Geri is the proud mum to baby Monty, who she welcomed into the world on the 21 January 2017, coinciding with the birthday of her good friend and former Spice Girl band member, Emma Bunton. Less than a month before giving birth, Geri tragically lost her good friend George Michael, who passed away on Christmas Day. Opening up about her sad loss on This Morning, she told hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby: “I absolutely loved him.” With tears in her eyes, she continued: “I’m going to cry, I’m all hormonal as well. But when I left the Spice Girls, he took me under his wing. He was such a lovely person so it was shocking. And suddenly I have a baby. It was just like the circle of life… You just don’t expect it. He was such a good man.”

Phillip then asked if Monty's middle name – George – was a tribute to the musician. "Yes. That was my mother's idea," the former Spice Girl revealed. "She was very close to George and he loved his mother, loved his family and she said, 'Why don't you put George?' And I thought, 'Why not?...'"
Geri is also stepmum to her husband Christian Horner’s daughter Olivia from a previous relationship. The star married the Red Bull Formula 1 boss at a ceremony held in a parish church at Bedfordshire in May 2015, with Bluebell acting as a bridesmaid.
