Similar to Benedict Cumberbatch's traditional engagement announcement last week, Geri Halliwell announced her engagement to Christian Horner in the paper The Times.
The post read, "Mr C.E.J. Horner OBE and Geri Halliwell, The engagement is announced between Christian, son of Mr and Mrs G.M. Horner and Geraldine, daughter of the late Mr L.F. Halliwell and Mrs A. Parkinson."
The former Spice Girl also shared with her fans the happy news on Twitter. The singer tweeted, "Christian and I are delighted to announce that we are engaged! We’re both very happy."
Halliwell and Horner can plan on blending families as well. Geri has daughter Bluebell Madonna, 8, from a former relationship while Christian has a 1-year-old daughter with an ex-girlfriend.
Unlike what people might think, Halliwell was never really the romantic type until well after her spiced up life. In a 2012 interview with Hello, the singer said that she got "a late start on the romantic front. I didn’t start dating until I was in my 30s."
We're delighted that the waiting paid off! Congrats to the happy couple. We can hear the Spice Girls' throwbacks playlist for the reception from here.
