Geri Halliwell, famously known as Ginger Spice from the iconic Spice Girls, candidly discussed the initial stages of her relationship with Christian Horner, the Formula 1 boss. The singer revealed that she didn't shy away from showing her true self, even admitting to being "quite grumpy" towards Horner in their early days. She emphasized her desire to be genuine, stating, "I was just real."

Halliwell, 51, shared her insights during an interview with journalist Dolly Alderton for The Sunday Times. She described herself as a "late developer" in love and expressed gratitude for the time she had to evolve into her true self before finding love with Horner. The couple, who tied the knot in 2015, share a son named Monty, born two years after their marriage. Halliwell also has a daughter, Bluebell, from a previous relationship with filmmaker Sacha Gervasi.

The Spice Girl further revealed that she initially struggled to adjust to Horner's presence in her life after being accustomed to singlehood. However, their bond grew stronger over time, leading to a "really loving relationship." She added, "We’re best friends," and expressed surprise at the depth of her connection with a man, given her all-girls school background.

On the topic of love, Halliwell offered words of encouragement to women seeking love later in life, urging them not to rush and to trust that they have time.

In addition to her personal revelations, Halliwell hinted at a potential Spice Girls reunion, sparking excitement among fans. She teased, "At some point there will be something," leaving fans curious about the possible return of Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice, who was notably absent from the group's 2019 UK comeback tour.
