Hugo has featured in many of Geri's Instagram posts over lockdown, with the mum-of-two sharing some lovely family moments for her fans on social media.

In the comments section, one wrote: "You couldn't look happier," while another wrote: "You look so happy!" A third added: "You are literally glowing! And look so beautiful."

The singer lives with husband Christian and her two children, 14-year-old Bluebell, and three-year-old Monty. As well as their country home in Banbury, the family also own a second property in Hertfordshire.

Christian and Geri - who married in 2015 – have been at their Banbury home since the start of the lockdown, and it has more than enough to keep them entertained.

With plenty of land, the couple keep a number of animals at their retreat, including goats and chickens. They are also growing fruit, and recently Geri shared a cute video of Monty helping her to pick some raspberries in the garden.
