Geri Halliwell’s daughter Bluebell, 18 months, caught chickenpox from Cruz Beckham. Now mom, Geri Halliwell has to leave Bluebell at home while she and the other Spice Girls kick off their world tour in Vancouver on Sunday.
“Bluebell caught chickenpox from Cruz,” Halliwell (“Ginger” Spice), 35, revealed Friday morning on the British TV show GMTV. “She’s now completely pelted now so I left her at home. Normally they’re running around the set.”
As Halliwell suggests on the official Spice Girls’ blog, the outbreak was inevitable.
Daughter Bluebell, she says, “loves hanging with the Beckham boys. Cruz and Bluebell have play dates, and Romeo – 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.”
As a mom, you automatically want to be with your child when they are sick. I’m sure this will be a difficult weekend for Geri.
