Geri Horner has reportedly paid tribute to her late friend George Michael by naming her newborn son after him.

The 44-year-old former Spice Girl – also known as Geri Halliwell – posted an adorable picture over the weekend of her little one, and revealed she and her husband Christian Horner has a rather magnificent name.


Geri’s reveals the name of her baby boy

“Montague George Hector Horner arrived this morning, a beautiful little brother for Bluebell and Olivia #amazing-day #grateful #monty,” the singer wrote on Saturday morning.

But while it’s believed the newborn’s name is a nod to actor Monty Python, close friends of Geri says she poignantly picked his middle name in memory of the Careless Whisper singer.

“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,” an insider told the Daily Mirror.

Montague George Hector is Geri’s first child with Christian, 43, who she married in 2015.

She already has 10-year-old daughter Bluebell, whose father is screenwriter Sacha Gervasi and Bluebell’s godfather is Kenny Goss, George’s ex-partner.

Christian also has daughter Olivia, three, from a previous marriage.

George tragically died on Christmas Day with a post-mortem yet to reveal the cause of his death.

Geri, who credits George as one of her close friends, took to Twitter to write:  “So so sad, RIP George, a dear friend, the kindest, most generous and talented person.”

Geri recently held a star-studded baby shower with her celebrity friends, including her former Spice Girls bandmate Emma Bunton.
