Blake Lively has long been a Spice Girls fan - even once dressing up as Baby Spice to one of the band's concerts - so much so that not even she is immune to feeling starstruck by the group's famous members.
A social media user shared a childhood picture of herself posing with an Emma Bunton impersonator at a Spice Girls show. She now realises the Baby Spice doppleganger was, in fact, Blake Lively in platforms and bunches and shared the image on Twitter.
Found a picture when I was 5 at my first concert. #SpiceGirls and took a picture with a girl dressed up as Baby Spice who I just realized now was @blakelively pic.twitter.com/GN6AW9fg0e— Bria Madrid (@briamadrid) 4 August 2018
Lively spotted the tweet and posted the picture on Instagram along with the caption: "Pretending to be someone else since 1997 (Thanks @briaamadrid for the photo of us at the Spice Girls concert. Sorry - not sorry - I tricked you into thinking i was @emmalebunton)"
Bunton herself replied , saying: "So cute, you're rocking those pigtails @blakelively"
Lively responded excitedly, evidently thrilled that Baby Spice knew of her existence: "@emmalebunton Forever bowing down to you. I cannot believe you know who I am. This will never be normal."
The Spice Girls themselves are currently planning a comeback in the form of an animated superhero film with 'girl power' at its heart. Blake lively will definitely be watching.
