Geri Halliwell-Horner enjoyed the high life as one-fifth of the biggest female pop group of the nineties. But now the 51-year-old lives life off-stage and aside from being a children's book author and a keen horse rider, Geri is raising an adorable brood with her Red Bull F1 executive husband Christian Horner.

The pair met in 2009 when Geri was a plus-one of Bernie Ecclestone at the Monaco Grand Prix but didn't go official until 2014. After a year-long romance, Geri and Christian wed in 2015.

Geri is the mother to two children - 18-year-old-Bluebell from her previous relationship with British film director Sacha Gervasi, and Montague, or Monty for short, seven, whom she fell pregnant with two years after wedding the former racing driver. Christian also has a daughter, Olivia, 10, from his previous marriage to Beverley Allen.

Geri's eldest child is Bluebell Madonna Halliwell. Bluebell, who was nine years old at the time of her mother's 2015 wedding, made the cutest gesture on the special day by walking her mother down the aisle wearing a little blue dress and a flower crown made of freesias.

Geri celebrated Bluebell getting her GCSE results in 2022 with a sweet mother-daughter selfie after she achieved nine A* grades. The 'Wannabe' singer has previously gushed about her "blended, modern family" after years of being a single mum. "I guess the word I'd use to describe where I am in my life is content," she admitted. "We've gone from it being just Bluebell and me for so long, to this blended, modern family."

Geri is a stepmother to little Olivia. In a March 2023 interview with The Telegraph, Olivia's father opened up about his and Geri's blended family dynamic. "I have a great relationship with Beverley and Beverley gets on with Geri, and Geri is great with Olivia and Olivia has a lovely relationship with Monty," he explained. "It's totally harmonious."

Ginger Spice opened up about how she has approached a stepmother relationship with Olivia. She told Scary Mommy: "It’s respectfully just allowing an organic process to happen, for the relationships to build and respect everybody’s differences.

"It's funny, we're ingrained with certain stories, aren’t we?" she continued, reflecting on the common perception of stepmothers. "In fairy tales, there’s a stepmum that’s always [evil]… She needs a rebrand, doesn’t she?".
