Geri Horner has given birth to her second child, and according to reports, the former Spice Girl has named the baby boy after her close friend, the late George Michael.
The 44-year-old – who also has daughter Bluebell, 10 from a previous relationship - and her Formula 1 boss husband, Christian Horner named their first child together Montague George Hector Horner.
A family source said: ‘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,’ reports the Mirror.
Announcing the happy arrival, Geri posted an Instagram snap of her son’s foot along with the caption: ‘Montague George Hector Horner arrived this morning, a beautiful little brother for Bluebell and Olivia #amazing-day #grateful #monty.’
She also added on Twitter: ‘Christian and I are delighted to announce our baby boy was born this morning weighing 7lbs 8oz.’
George Michael was discovered dead at his Oxfordshire home in Boxing Day by his boyfriend Fadi Fawaz.
Following the tragic news, Geri posted: ‘So so sad, RIP George, a dear friend, the kindest, most generous and talented person.’
