Halliwell ‘disappointed’ ahead of wedding

Geri Halliwell and her fiancé Christian Horner are said to be mildly upset ahead of their wedding day because his parents have declined to attend.

The 42-year-old former Spice Girl is marrying the 41-year-old Formula One Team Principal on Friday at Syon House in West London.

But apparently just a few days ahead of their nuptials, the couple are dealing with some bad news.

“Geri and Christian are disappointed that his parents aren’t coming, but all his brothers, close family and pals will be there,” a source told UK newspaper The Mirror.

However, it’s claimed the they are choosing to look on the bright side of things.

Geri and Christian are said to be looking forward to spending their special day with other loved ones.

“It is going to be a great day so they aren’t over-thinking it,” the insider noted.

“Geri loves her family, and has made sure they have pride of place on the big day.

“Even though Christian’s parents won’t be there, her mum and sister will be there supporting her all the way.”

Speculation is rife the race car driver’s mother and father are upset with Christian for leaving his former partner of 14 years Beverley Allen, 47, a few months before she gave birth to their daughter Olivia.

But it’s believed Christian is on good terms with Beverley, despite the parental criticism.

“They have resolved their differences having come to an agreement and Christian is just getting on with things now,” the source said.

“Both Geri and Christian are very excited about spending the rest of their lives together. Geri has been planning her big day for a while and it is going to be a fairytale wedding.”

Neither Geri nor Christian have ever married before, but the songstress is mother to daughter Bluebell, who turns nine years old on May 14. Geri shares Bluebell with her ex Sacha Gervasi.
