Close your eyes, put The Spice Girls' "Wannabe" on blast, and imagine the most amazing girl band reunion of all time. Granted, the possibility of a reunion between Scary, Sporty, Posh, Ginger, and Baby Spice is just a rumor that has been denied in the press, but damn, wouldn't it be a nice gift to ring in the New Year? In the meantime, members of The Spice Girls are raising the next generation of international pop stars (maybe). So what do the Spice Girls' kids look like now? They're all grown up and it's all too much. (Ha, get it? Get it?)
Haven't kept up with what's going on in Spice World 2.0? Here's a recap: All together, The Spice Girls are raising 12 kids between the five of them, according to VH1. The oldest children are now 18 years old, respectively, while the youngest little one will turn 1 year old in January. And, as expected, these famous pop stars-turned-famous moms are channeling their girl power into bringing up equally powerful, confident, and awesome children. Whether or not The Spice Girls' kids will form their own international pop act, though, remains to be seen. (OK, it's probably unlikely, but Spice Girls fans can dream.)
Melanie Brown (Scary Spice)
Melanie "Mel. B" Brown — aka Scary Spice (and the best Spice Girl, in my opinion) — is mom to three daughters: 18-year-old Phoenix with her first husband, back-up dancer Jimmy Gulzar, 10-year-old Angel Iris with actor Eddie Murphy, and 5-year-old Madison with ex-husband Stephen Belafonte. The America's Got Talent judge told People in August that she's raising her three daughters to be "confident, strong women on the inside who are appreciate, respectful, and supportive of other women." Unfortunately, though, they apparently don't like The Spice Girls, according to Brown (for shame).
Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice)
Victoria Beckham — a.k.a. Posh Spice — dropped her pop star mic years ago for a successful career as a fashion designer. When she's not dreaming up new designs, though, she's raising her four kids with her legendary soccer hottie husband David Beckham: Brooklyn, 18, Romeo, 14, Cruz, 12, and Harper, 5. But the fame doesn't stop with the parents: eldest son Brooklyn, who's dating American actor Chloë Grace Moretz, has a burgeoning modeling career and strong social media following, according to Marie Claire.
Emma Bunton (Baby Spice)
When she's not judging ABC's Boy Band competition, Emma Bunton — aka Baby Spice — is raising her two sons with her fiancé, Jade Jones, an R&B singer turned chef. The long-time couple, who celebrated their 19-year anniversary this past spring, are parents to 9-year-old Beau and 6-year-old Tate, according to The Mirror. Bunton and Jones became engaged in 2011, but the 41-year-old songwriter has no plans of tying the knot soon, the Mirror reported.
Geri Horner (Ginger Spice)
Geri Horner (née Halliwell) — aka Ginger Spice — is mom to two kiddos: Bluebell Madonna, 10, and 11-month-old Montague George Hector Horner. Horner welcomed Montague in January with husband Christian Horner, who's also father to 2-year-old daughter Olivia from a previous relationship, according to US Weekly. The 45-year-old pop singer had Bluebell Madonna in May 2006 with her former partner, screenwriter Sacha Gervasi. Ginger Spice is not shy about sharing photos of her blended brood, often posting sweet moments with her children to her Instagram account. And by the looks of it, the Horners are one happy family.
Sporty Spice (Mel. C)
Melanie "Mel. C" Chisholm — aka Sporty Spice — is notoriously private about her family life, particularly her 8-year-old daughter, Scarlet Chisholm Starr, whom she welcomed with former partner, property developer Thomas Starr, in February 2009. The 43-year-old mom rarely posts photos of Scarlet on Instagram, and those image that are available usually show her daughter from behind. And it's with good reason: Mel. C told The Sydney Morning Herald last year that she keeps Scarlet "out of the spotlight [to] protect her."
But that doesn't mean the Version of Me singer doesn't gush about her daughter to the press. Chisholm told the Morning Herald that Scarlet is "very outspoken" and isn't "afraid to speak her mind." "I think she will give the world hell," she said at the time.
In other words: A Spice Girl, through and through.
