Bunton has been by her friend Horner’s side multiple times during her pregnancy. In October, the duo stepped out together at the Attitude Awards 2016 in London, where Bunton presented Horner with the Honourary Gay Award — and Horner presented the world with the first glimpse at her adorable bump. And now, baby Montague and Bunton share a birthday — the Spice Girl turned 41 on Saturday.
The two are also reuniting with Melanie “Scary Spice” Brown, forming a new spinoff group GEM (a name made from the initials of their first names). Their first single, called “Song for Her,” leaked in November. The feel-good pop power anthem telling women who have lost their “careless and care-free” selves to the responsibilities of aging to “never forget the girl in the woman you are” — proving that the “Girl Power” spirit is still alive.
