It's been two weeks since Geri Horner welcomed the newest addition to her family and the former Spice Girl has shared a precious image of her baby son Monty with her fans.

Geri (44), who is already mum to ten-year-old Bluebell, shared an image in which she is cradling the new arrival with her husband Christian Horner on Instagram this morning.

The baby, named Montague George Hector, was born on January 21, almost two years after her Bedfordshire wedding to Formula One boss Christian. The child's second name was given as a tribute to Geri's friend, the late George Michael, who died on Christmas Day.

Speaking to The Times, the mum-of-two admitted she feels lucky to have conceived her son at the age of 44.

"I feel incredibly lucky to have conceived naturally at my age, 44. I see it as a miracle.

"Trust me, I can still moan like the rest of them but, equally, I remind myself every day that this is an absolute gift.

"This time round I was carrying quite a heavy baby - and it certainly felt more of a strain on my ligaments and my pelvis." she said.

Geri said her recent pregnancy affected her body differently than when she have birth to Bluebell in May 2006.

"This time I gained more weight physically, but this time the baby was bigger, I think. During pregnancy you never know if its cake or baby," the former Spice Girl said.
