Geri Horner's daughter to choose sibling's name

Geri Horner is letting her daughter choose her baby name.

The 44-year-old singer - who has 10-year-old Bluebell from a past relationship - is expecting her first child with husband Christian Horner and she and the Formula One boss are doing their best to involve her older offspring as much as possible.

A source said: "Geri wants to include Bluebell in the pregnancy as much as possible to ensure she doesn't feel left out - especially after being an only child for so long.

"She's taken Bluebell along to scans and has given her the role of helping her and Christian choose a name for her new sibling, as well as picking out accessories for the nursery. Bluebell is really excited about having a sister or brother to play with."

Geri was expected to reunite with her Spice Girls bandmates Mel B and Emma Bunton for a reunion gig next summer but is not sure whether or not to go ahead with the plans because of her pregnancy.

The source added to Closer magazine: "Geri is desperate to perform but she's also conscious of rehearsing while heavily pregnant and wants to ensure she puts herself and the baby first. She doesn't want to let the girls down, but as an older mum, she knows she has to take care of herself."

Meanwhile, Geri previously admitted her best friend is her husband.

She shared: "My husband is my best friend. He knows me inside out, I don't edit myself with him. It was a big learning curve.

"Being happy is the best beauty secret. I wish I'd known that when I was 20, I could have saved myself a lot of money ... I've wasted so much time trying to find-tune who I am but there's something so freeing about being kind to yourself and saying, 'Actually, I'm enough. This is going to have to do.'"
