Geri Halliwell turns 50 today (August 6).
The former Spice Girl and solo pop star was criticised by some fans this week after hugging Nadine Dorries in a selfie taken with the Tory MP at the women's Euros 2022 final.
The It's Raining Men singer has regularly made headlines down the years – usually related to a string of high-profile relationships.
While she has long settled down, here are some of Halliwell's past flings, boyfriends and fiancés before she married her husband, the Formula One team boss Christian Horner.
Who has Geri Halliwell dated?
After breaking up with polo playing beau Jamie Morrison, the singer formerly known as Ginger Spice briefly dated radio presenter and DJ Chris Evans in 1999.
In a match made in pop heaven, Halliwell was with Robbie Williams for while from 2000 to 2001.
She then moved on to Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst, before reportedly dating both Duncan James and Lee Ryan from Blue over the next few years.
During a brief brief fling with screenwriter Sacha Gervasi, Halliwell fell pregnant with her daughter Bluebell Madonna.
She later started dating Britain's Got Talent judge David Walliams – a romance said to have lasted only six weeks.
Halliwell is said to have had an on and off relationship with Henry Beckwith from 2009 to 2011, before she reportedly dated Russell Brand for a few months after the pair met at the Olympics 2012 Closing Ceremony.
Had Geri Halliwell been engaged before?
Her marriage to Horner may have proven to be third time lucky for Halliwell.
In 2008, she got engaged to shipping tycoon Fabrizio Politi, but that only lasted about four months.
Previously, Halliwell was reportedly briefly engaged to a wealthy American named Demian Warner, soon after they met back in 2002.
It has been suggested that Halliwell may also have been betrothed during her relationship with Beckwith.
When did Geri Halliwell marry Christian Horner?
Halliwell and Horner, who is the team principal of the Red Bull Racing Formula One team, began dating in February 2014 before announcing their engagement in November of that year.
They married on May 15 2015 in Woburn, Bedfordshire.
In October 2016, Halliwell and Horner announced they were expecting their first child together.
Their son, named Montague George Hector Horner, was born on 21 January 2017.
Halliwell is stepmother to Horner's daughter, Olivia, from a previous relationship.
