Though the Spice Girls lead a glamorous jet-set life, now that most of the Girls are now moms, they are forced to deal with everyday childhood mishaps – this time, the chicken pox!
Just days before the Spice Girls are set to make their anticipated return to the stage with their massive world tour kickoff in Vancouver, a pox has descended on the House of Spice.
Cruz Beckham, son of Posh Spice and soccer star David Beckham, appears to have given Bluebell Halliwell, daughter of Ginger, chicken pox forcing Ginger to leave her daughter at home, according to a report in People.
“Bluebell caught chickenpox from Cruz,” Ginger said Friday morning on the British TV show GMTV. “She’s now completely pelted now so I left her at home. Normally they’re running around the set.”
Luckily, the Spice Babies have become great friends and often play together while their moms rehearse. Ginger wrote on the official Spice Girls’s blog that daughter Bluebell “loves hanging with the Beckham boys. Cruz and Bluebell have play dates, and Romeo – well, he is just gorgeous with her. Actually, it was a beautiful moment when we were rehearsing the other day and all of our kids were playing on the stage at the same time. It made me smile.”
Posh Spice has three sons, Brooklyn, 8, Romeo, 5, and Cruz; Baby Spice has one son Beau, born in August; Scary Spice has two children, Phoenix Chi, 8, and Angel, born in April, while Ginger Spice has little Bluebell. Sporty Spice does not have any children.
