The former Spice Girl was a very close friend of the late music star.
Geri Horner welcomed her second child into the world over the weekend, and chose to pay tribute to late pal George Michael with the name choice.
The 44-year-old and her husband, Christian named their baby boy, Montague George Hector Horner, choosing the middle name in memory of the star who passed away on Christmas Day.
The newborn will share a birthday with Geri's former band mate, Emma Bunton who congratulated her pal on Twitter with the hashtag 'birthdaytwins'.
Amazing news, so happy! #birthdaytwins #birthdaymade love you all. Xxx https://t.co/zFITnTF0Zm— Emma Bunton (@EmmaBunton) January 21, 2017
This is Geri's first child with her husband, Christian. She already has 10-year-old daughter, Bluebell from a former relationship with screenwriter, Sacha Gervasi.
