Chickenpox outbreak affects Spice Girls' kids
In an appearance this morning on the British television show GMTV, Geri Halliwell revealed that all the good times had by the ‘Spice Babies’ while their moms rehearse for their upcoming Spice Girls World Tour may have come at a price. According to Geri, several of the kids — including her own 18-month-old daughter Bluebell, as well as Cruz Beckham, the 2 ½-year-old son of Victoria and David Beckham — have come down with chickenpox. Said Geri,
[Bluebell's] now completely pelted now so I left her at home. Normally they’re running around the set.
Bluebell appears to harbor no ill will towards Cruz, who infected Bluebell with the virus in the first place. On the Spice Girls blog, Geri wrote of her daughter,
She loves hanging with the Beckham boys. Cruz and Bluebell have play dates, and Romeo [Beckham, 5] – well, he is just gorgeous with her. Actually, it was a beautiful moment when we were rehearsing the other day and all of our kids were playing on the stage at the same time. It made me smile.
In addition to Cruz and Romeo, Victoria has a son Brooklyn, 8 ½. Bluebell is Geri’s first child.
