A woman who found an old photograph of herself with another girl dressed as Baby Spice at a Spice Girls gig in 1997 has just realised the Baby Spice wannabe is very famous indeed.

Bria Madrid shared the photograph on Twitter, explaining that she found the photo of herself aged five at her first ever concert and only just realised the girl she is photographed with is actress Blake Lively.

Lively would have been around 10 at the time.  She's dressed in a mini skirt with her long blonde hair in pigtails like Emma Bunton.

The concert was at the Glen Helen Amphitheater in San Bernadino County, California in 1997, the same year the group released their second studio album, Spiceworld.

Bria's photo has garnered a whopping 117,000 likes and almost 15,000 retweets and among those commenting on the photo was Blake Lively herself.

The A Simple Favour star retweeted it with the comment, "My secret is out...".
