Geri Horner, nee Halliwell, has shared the happy news that she and her husband Christian are expecting their first child together. The 44-year-old took to her Instagram page on Monday afternoon to make the big announcement.
"God bless Mother Nature #mamaspice," she wrote in the caption alongside a sketch of a heavily pregnant woman.
A spokesperson for the couple confirmed the news: "Spice Girl Geri Horner, 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."

The Spice Girls singer married the Red Bull Formula 1 boss at a ceremony held in a parish church at Bedfordshire in May last year, where Geri’s daughter Bluebell was a bridesmaid.
The happy couple began dating early in 2014 after being friends for many years. They announced their engagement quietly a few months later with a small notice in The Times.
Both Geri and Christian both have children from previous marriages: Geri's daughter Bluebell, and Christian's three-year-old daughter Olivia from his relationship to former partner Beverley.

The former pop star has previously spoken about her wedding day, confessing it was "truly the happiest day" of her life. During an appearance on This Morning, she said: "People talk about their wedding day and until you get there, you don't really know what it's going to be like. It truly was the happiest day of my life, it was so amazing."
"The thing is my mother, she got divorced so it kind of put me off a bit if I'm honest and I hadn't met anyone that I felt it was right [with] really. And when I met Christian, I automatically knew, I did, I actually said to my friend, 'I think I've met the man I want to marry.'"
