On 14 May 2006, Geri Halliwell gave birth to her daughter, Bluebell Madonna, by caesarean section at London’s Portland Hospital with her sister by her side. Explaining her name choice, she said, “What really clinched it for me was my mother telling me that the bluebell is increasingly rare – so it’s a precious flower, which seems just right for my daughter.” Her daughter’s middle name came from two of Halliwell’s heroines, the Virgin Madonna and pop singer Madonna.
On 23 April 2007, all of The Spice Girls except Melanie B attended the christening of Halliwell’s daughter, with Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton and George Michael’s partner Kenny Goss serving as godparents.
Sacha Gervasi is reported to be the child’s father, but Halliwell has never publicly confirmed that. On 7 March 2006, Hello! magazine published an interview with Halliwell] she says, “It is tacky to kiss and tell, I would never deprive a child of the right to know its father.”
