Geri Halliwell AKA Ginger Spice celebrated the big 5 - 0 this week and to celebrate she got the whole gang back together!
Victoria Beckham, Melanie Chisholm and Emma Bunton - Posh Spice, Sporty Spice, and Baby Spice, respectively - all linked up with Halliwell to celebrate Ginger Spice turning fifty.
David Beckham, Victoria’s wife, recorded the four spice girls dancing together and singing their lungs out to the group’s huge 1996 song ‘Say You’ll Be There.”
“Special celebrating Ginger this weekend and even more special to capture the moment of the girls,” David, the 47-year-old soccer superstar wrote. “A friendship for life.”
David also shouted out the fifth spice girl, Melanie Brown AKA Mel B AKA Scary Spice, who was absent from the celebrations.
“@officialmelb you were missed,” he wrote.
Scary Spice may have been absent, but that’s because she had something to celebrate herself. In an exclusive interview with Hello! Magazine, the 47-year-old announced she and her hairdresser boyfriend recently got engaged!
This is the third time Mel has been engaged and, by what she’s saying, it sounds like the third time will be the charm.
“For the first time in my life, I’m engaged to a beautiful, honest person who makes me feel protected, nurtured and so loved, and I want to savour that,” she told Hello!
Mel also said that all the other spice girls have given her fiance, Rory McPhee, the stamp of approval - which is a Spice Girl first (and probably another reason they were dancing with such glee at the 50th).
“All of them were delighted for us and said, ‘We love Rory, he’s amazing’ and they’ve all sent congratulations cards,” she shared. “I do care about their opinion and it’s really special to me that they like Rory so much because they’ve never liked any of my boyfriends and they’ve been quite clear about that.”
Congratulations to both Geri and Mel B. You go girls!
