Geri Halliwell and Christian Horner have been married since 2015. They have a son together.
Love is a fickle thing and not always predictable. We never know where or when we would find love, and sometimes, we have to go through numerous heartbreaks before finding our soulmate. For Ginger Spice Geri Halliwell, finding the love of her life took many failed relationships. After all, some people figure out what they like after eliminating what they don't like.
Halliwell, 48, married Formula 1 team boss Christian Horner, 47, after two failed engagements and 14 other failed relationships, as per Daily Record. The If you wannabe my lover singer and Horner tied the knot after only a year together. But, they had to go through some family drama before walking down the aisle.
Horner and Halliwell, who has dated Britain's Got Talent judge David Walliams in the past, started dating in March 2014 after he left his partner of 14 years, Beverly Allen, in 2013, according to Mirror. Allen was pregnant with Horner's first child at the time and she gave birth in October 2013. However, just six months after Allen gave birth, the singer and the Formula 1 boss went public with their relationship. They had been friends previously and it was never assumed that he cheated on Allen.
Halliwell — who has previously been linked to radio presenter Chris Evans, Robbie Williams, Russell Brand, and Blue's Duncan James — also split up from betting tycoon boyfriend Anton Kaszubowski in 2013. She was previously engaged to Italian businessman Fabrizio Politi and socialite Henry Beckwith. She and Horner announced their engagement in the Times in November 2014. They reportedly broke up for a short while after the engagement as he wanted to work on his relationship with Allen. However, Horner and the 2 Become 1 singer rekindled their romance. They got married in May 2015 at St Mary's Church in Woburn.
Horner's parents didn't attend the wedding as they had not accepted the singer. They had been angry that he ditched his pregnant partner to marry Ginger Spice.
Halliwell's 9-year-old daughter Bluebell, whom she shares with Sacha Gervasi, walked her down the aisle, as per Hello!. "People talk about their wedding day and until you get there, you don't really know what it's going to be like," the singer told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on This Morning. "It truly was the happiest day of my life, it was so amazing."
"The thing is my mother, she got divorced so it kind of put me off a bit if I'm honest and I hadn't met anyone that I felt it was right [with] really," said she. "And when I met Christian, I automatically knew, I did, I actually said to my friend, 'I think I've met the man I want to marry.'"
After the event, the couple traveled to the south of France for a "mini-moon" before the Team Principal of the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Formula One team had to return to work. Halliwell, who described her husband as her best friend, said, "He knows me inside out. I don't edit myself with him. It was a big learning curve."
"It's really weird saying 'my husband' but my husband, he works for a race team," said the singer about the trip. "He runs a team and it was the Monaco Grand Prix a few days later. He had the race on at the weekend so we had a little mini-break up in the mountains outside of Cannes, a mini-moon."
In 2016, Halliwell announced that she was pregnant on Instagram. "God bless Mother Nature #mamaspice," she wrote. Her team also released a statement which read: "Geri and Christian are absolutely delighted to announce they are expecting their first child together," as per Mirror. "The couple is overjoyed with the good news and cannot wait to welcome the newest addition to their family."
The couple had kept Allen in the loop, with whom they have a "good relationship," before announcing their baby news. In 2015, she had said that she would love to have a child with him. "If it happens it happens and that will be amazing. But we are already blessed with two girls," she said.
