The star was kept in the dark as they planned a comeback reunion
Mel B is undoubtedly happy for Geri Horner’s pregnancy on a personal level, but a source revealed she was initially annoyed by the way she announced her pregnancy.
The 41-year-old artist was reportedly kept in the dark despite being in talks for a Spice Girls reunion, now known as GEM, consisting of fellow bandmates Geri, Emma, and Mel.
An insider explained to The Sun On Sunday: “Of course Mel is thrilled personally for Geri but she’s very fiery and in the moment she found out her temper flared and she said a few choice words to pals she probably shouldn’t have. Within minutes of Geri gushing about her good news on Instagram, Mel unfollowed her.
It’s a good job Geri is so zen nowadays, because if she’d heard about Mel’s moanings things could have escalated.
However, Mel’s desperate for the reunion to go ahead so when she realised Geri was still totally on board with doing Spice stuff next year everything seemed to be smoothed over.”
44-year-old Geri – who has a daughter from a previous relationship – revealed she’s expecting her first kid with husband Christian Horner. The two have given her daughter a chance to choose a name for the unborn child in an effort to involve her more in the family.
An insider explained: “Geri wants to include Bluebell in the pregnancy as much as possible to ensure she doesn’t feel left out – especially after being an only child for so long.
She’s taken Bluebell along to scans and has given her the role of helping her and Christian choose a name for her new sibling, as well as picking out accessories for the nursery. Bluebell is really excited about having a sister or brother to play with.”
