Geri pays tribute through the newborn’s middle name
Geri and Christian Horner have just welcomed their first child, and the two revealed he was named after the late George Michael.
The former Spice Girl shared a message through Instagram, in which she revealed his middle name by adding: “Montague George Hector Horner arrived this morning, a beautiful little brother for Bluebell and Olivia #amazing-day #grateful #monty.”
She then wrote on her Twitter account: “Christian and I are delighted to announce our baby boy was born this morning weighing 7lbs 8oz.”
An insider proceeded to share with the Sunday Mirror: “Geri wanted George to be a part of Monty’s life, so she felt it only fitting that her newborn have a middle name after the star.”
And Geri, 44, already has a 10-year-old daughter from a previously relationship. Christian, meanwhile, also has his own daughter with ex-wife Beverly Allen.
His uncle Geoffrey Kenyon May added: “I’m delighted they are both happy and the baby is fine.”
He made a special note of the baby’s first name, as it is common among English families: “Montague is a good English name but we have none of those names in the family, they’re all new ones. I’d have thought he would have kept one of the family names.”
When asked whether the two plan on having more children, he said: “I think it is pushing the boat out but anything is possible.
More and more people are having them later on in life. Geri is a livewire, I think renewed motherhood might quieten her down a bit.”
Coincidently, the baby was born on Emma Bunton’s birthday. She recently tweeted: “Amazing news, so happy! #birthdaytwins #birthdaymade love you all. Xxx.”
