Spice Girls star Geri Halliwell, 45, is all smiles with son Monty, 6 months, in the latest issue of HELLO! and opens up about life with husband, F1 Team Principal Christian Horner, her 11-year-old daughter Bluebell and 3-year-old stepdaughter Olivia.
On her baby boy: “He’s our gift. He really is the sweetest, most affectionate baby– such a cuddler – and I totally understand now that protective thing mums have with their sons; that deep-rooted feeling of ‘That’s my boy’. It is so lovely to have this little person who is half each of us. He’s a pretty chilled baby for the most part, which he gets more from Christian, but then we’ll encounter a bit of protest and I think, ‘Ah, there’s the Halliwell!’ ”
On having more children: “There’s room for another one, for sure, and if that happened that would be great. But either way is okay. We’ve got our hands pretty full and we’re very grateful for what we have.”
On her happy marriage: “It has been a total revelation to me, meeting a man I can completely be myself with. We have a very playful relationship – we tease each other a lot. Before Christian and I got together, I had no interest in marriage. I was the classic singleton, always getting myself into romantic gaffes that never worked out.”
On their blended family: “We’ve gone from it being just Bluebell and me for so long, to this blended, modern family.”
