Geri Halliwell has posted a beautiful photo of her newborn son, Monty. In the sweet snap, the former Spice Girls band member is holding the baby boy, while her husband, Christian Horner, gives him a kiss on the forehead.

The gorgeous Monty looks sound asleep while wearing a white spotted baby grow in the photo, and his cot can be seen in the background with a personalised My 1st Years blanket draped over it. The proud mum captioned the snap: "Monty is two weeks old today". Fans were quick to gush over the first photo of the singer's son, with one well-wisher writing: "What a cute little boy," while another added: "Monty is so gorgeous, lovely picture." Geri announced little Monty's arrival back in January in a sweet post which read: "Montague George Hector Horner arrived this morning, a beautiful little brother for Bluebell and Olivia." She followed the snap with a photo of cupcakes bearing the names of her family members, writing: "Time for some birthday cake! Thank you for all your lovely messages."

The 44-year-old recently opened up about her pregnancy, and how she considered it a "miracle". Chatting to The Sunday Times, she said: "I feel incredibly lucky to have conceived naturally at my age, 44. I see it as a miracle. Trust me, I can still moan like the rest them but, equally, I remind myself every day that this is an absolute gift." She also spoke about how yoga had helped her throughout her pregnancy journey. "I found Iyengar yoga, which I have practised for several years, to be really helpful," she told the newspaper. "I really like the pose when you are on all fours and you wiggle your hips… I also love a couple of standing poses, especially the half-moon, but deep down I am like a lazy lion. To me the resting poses are the best."
