What could be more fabulous than being in love with the famous Geri Halliwell?

There are millions of people who would die to be with the 42 year old Ginger Spice but their dreams of being her better half are all limited in their imagination because she is already married. Don’t be so surprised. This beautiful singer's wedding with Christian Horner is one of the most well publicized nuptials of all time. The already engaged couple got married on May 15, 2015.

If you don’t know who Christian Horner is, here’s what you need to know. He is the Team Principal of the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Formula One team. He has been holding this position since 2005. He started his career as a race car driver and later switched roles to become Team Principal of FIA F3000.

Horner started his career in motorsport after he won the Formula Renault scholarship in 1991. He also completed British Formula Renault Championship with Manor Motorsport as the season’s race winner and the highest placed rookie as well. He finished second in the Class B Championship winning 8 races. He then moved to Fortec and ADR team and then to the TOM’s and later raced in British Formula two.

He moved up to formula 3000 in 1997 and founded the Arden team. He then retired from driving and racing to focus on developing the Arden team.

Horner became one of the youngest Team Principals at the age of 36. He worked on the Arden team, recruiting different new racer like Viktor Maslov, Marc Goossens, Tomas Enge, Bjorn Wirdheim and several more. Arden raced on three races and finished second in Euro F3000 Champioship in 2000 followed by Enge’s victory in 2002. He was later demoted to third after a failed drug test. But Arden won the team championship.

Horner’s fate took a turn when he was hired as the Team Principal in 2005 after the Austrian energy drink company, Red Bull purchased Jaguar F1 Team. A funny part is that, Horner jumped into a swimming pool wearing just a Superman cape to celebrate the team’s first podium finish at the Monaco Grand Prix in 2006. Victories followed his path and he is now one of the youngest and the most sought out entrepreneur of our time.

Horner has a daughter named Olivia with his former partner Beverley Allen. He also has a step daughter named Bluebell from his present wife Halliwell’s side. Bluebell acted as Halliwell’s bridesmaid in her wedding. But they are yet to have children of their own.

The newlywed couple are enjoying their married life as they are seen going out very often. But rumor has it that the relationship between these two was something many of her fans didn’t want. It is rumored that the former Spice Girls singer had to steal him off his partner of 14 years - who was pregnant with his child - rather than find a man of her own. Though Halliwell and Horner deny the claim, it’s been said that the two have been friends for a couple of years before Christian dumped his long-term partner. And according to various media reports, Christian's parents even refused to attend the wedding, as they're so disgusted at their son.

If it is true then Horner with his millions of net worth on his bank balance does not have any problem of hushing up the tattle talk. But we can’t just bash a celebrity without any proof now, can we?
