Geri Halliwell and Christian Horner have welcomed their first child together – a baby boy!
The former Spice Girls star shared the announcement on Instagram by sharing a very first photo of their son. A black and white image showing the baby’s tiny feet was posted with the caption: “Montague George Hector Horner arrived this morning, a beautiful little brother for Bluebell and Olivia #amazing-day #grateful #monty.”
(Montague’s name may have been inspired by the surname of William Shakespeare’s famous character Romeo from his well known play Romeo and Juliet. )
The photo was a follow on from Halliwell’s initial twitter message which announced the baby’s arrival: “Christian and I are delighted to announce our baby boy was born this morning weighing 7lbs 8oz.”
Halliwell,44 and Horner,43 were married in May 2015 and both have daughters from previous relationships, three year old Olivia and 10 year old Bluebell who will no doubt be loving the fact that they now have a little brother to play with!
The former Spice Girl just yesterday shared a photo of her huge baby bump, writing a simple “Hello” for the caption.
One eagle eyed fan on twitter pointed out that baby Montague celebrates his birthday on the same day as former Spice Girls band member Emma Bunton, writing: “Oh my goodness congratulations! Born on the same day as @EmmaBunton it really is your very own #BabySpice. Hope you are well.”
Congratulations guys on the safe arrival of your bouncing baby boy! We can’t wait to see more pics of him!
