Talk about spicing up your life!
Come to think of it, this latest new couple alert actually makes total sense.
Both are British, rather cute and cool in a quirky way and both performed at the Olympic closing ceremonies in London. And he seems to have a thing for female singers because his ex-wife is pop superstar Katy Perry.
Of course I'm talking about British actor and comedian Russell Brand (37) and Geri Halliwell aka "Ginger Spice" (40).
According to British tabloid The Sun
the two have been on a string of dates and are getting pretty serious.
The Sun reports that the romance between them flared up in July when both were rehearsing for the Olympic closing ceremony in London. Brand was there to sing "I am the Walrus" and "Pure Imagination" while Halliwell was reunited with the other Spice Girls to perform a medley of their songs. At the end of the show he posed with The Spice Girls for a photo which was posted by Mel B on her Twitter account and which I'm including here.
At the time, Brand told The Mirror :
"I've got a massive crush on Geri Halliwell too, so everything in the world is as it should be"
Until recently, Russell Brand was dating Isabella Brewster but apparently ended that relationship so he could date Halliwell properly. The couple have reportedly even been out with Geri's six-year-old daughter Bluebell Madonna.
The more I think about it, the more I like the two together. They both have a good sense of humour and are committed to healthy lifestyles. Halliwell has given up alcohol and is really committed to yoga. Brand has also battled drug and alcohol addiction and has been clean for ten years.
Congrats Russell....looks like your life just got a little bit spicy!
