Geri Horner spotted out on a stroll with new baby in Aston Martin pushchair

The 44-year-old former Spice Girl shared the adorable picture of herself pushing her new baby Monty in the pram on Instagram.

The image caption read: 'It's Nana time.... ? it's quite wonderful , ten years later my mother and I ,still taking a stroll in the park together, with my new baby , having a good chat ?#gratitude.'

Geri looked relaxed and happy on a walk with mum, Ana, alongside as she pushed her son in a luxurious pram worth a whopping £3,000.

Geri's husband Christian Horner - the Team Principal of the Red Bull Racing Formula One team - clearly knows a thing or two about travelling in style, and so it seems that baby Monty will be following in his father's footsteps. 

The Aston Martin Edition pram is created by world-leading designers and hand-made by expert craftsman, with a magnesium alloy exterior, sumptuous sheepskin interior and 100% cashmere blanket.

It seems that Geri will be splashing out on top-end baby products for her new arrival, and perhaps unsurprising that she's opted for the Aston Martin Edition pushchair considering her husband's occupation.

10 Celebrities on pregnancy beauty tips

Trailed by paps, celebrity mums rely on dependable solutions to look their best. So, which failsafe fixes can busy mums steal?

pregnancy beauty tips celebrities beyonce fearne cotton

FEARNE COTTON

'If I’m feeling lazy, I’ll wear sunglasses, a hat and a big coat and no one will ever know if I look like death underneath’

Remember that parenting mantra, ‘Just good enough is good enough’? Well the same applies to getting up and dressed in the morning. Yes, there are women who look perma-polished on the school/gym/supermarket run, but you don’t have to. For mere mortal mums who don’t have a) the entourage or b) the inclination to get up and showered at 5am every day, take a leaf out of Fearne’s book (no pun intended) and add a few emergency accessories to your wardrobe.

We love the recent collections from the high- end high street saviours. Check out Whistles’ wide-brim sun hats, £50, and trans-seasonal felt fedoras, £60, and Jigsaw’s completely covetable spring coats. We’ve got our eye on the navy Collarless Column, £229 and the ivory Belted Cocoon, £249.

 

BEYONCE

‘Sometimes I put a little gold eyeshadow in the inner corners of my eyes – it makes you look more awake’

This is one of the oldest beauty tricks in the book and immediately helps to make tired eyes pop, while also using a little smoke-and-mirrors style distraction to compensate for any under- or inner- eye shadows. You can nail Beyoncé’s failsafe peeper perker-upper by investing in two invaluable pieces of kit, both by the make-up legend Charlotte Tilbury. First up, her Long Lasting Easy Cream Eyeshadow, Eyes to Mesmerise in Jean, £22. The clever cream-to-sheen formula is perfect for creating a fresh, ingénue look: simply run it along your lashline and into the inner corners using her nifty Eye Smudger brush, £25.

JENNIFER LOPEZ

‘I stay out of the sun and use bronzers and self- tanners instead’

FAKE, DON’T BAKE Terrifyingly, sun damage (think pigmentation and age spots) can add a whopping ten to 12 years onto our perceived age, so take Jen’s advice and swap the sun-worshipping for a little relaxation in the shade.

Also, make SPFs your NBBF (that’s new beauty best friend). Choose a skin- protecting formulation of SPF 30 or higher (FYI, leading dermatologists recommend SPF 30), and apply it religiously every day after moisturiser and under foundation.

Neostrata Sheer Physical Protection SPF 50, £34  gives light but broad-spectrum defence against damaging UV rays, and the sheer finish is a great base for make-up. Layer it under Chanel Soleil de Tan Chanel, £32 for a soft, golden glow without compromising your complexion.

 

KATE HUDSON

‘I always clean my face, put a moisturiser on right away and let it soak before doing anything else... I really think staying hydrated is everything’

NVEST IN THE BEST Simple skincare and a regular, sustainable routine are the two best things to keep your complexion tip-top. Follow Kate and make twice-daily cleansing and moisturising non- negotiable. Forget expensive cleansing products; go for simple but highly effective formulations such as Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, from £5.99.

Money is better spent on a tailor-made plan, ideally prescribed by a respected dermatologist. Investment here will always reap the most skin-perfecting rewards, and nine times out of ten will include a protecting antioxidant such as vitamin C, and a nourishing moisturiser.

The prescription-only brand Obagi’s hero products Vitamin C Serum, from £81 (pricey but a little goes a long way) and Hydrate moisturiser, from £39, work together to create supple and luminous skin. Find your nearest Obagi-approved clinic.

Emma Bunton launches eco-friendly nappy and product collection

Kit & Kin nappies

Emma Bunton, (Spice Girl, radio presenter and mum of two), today launches her latest venture, Kit & Kin, which is an eco-friendly nappy and mum and baby product collection.

Emma is launching the brand with business partner Chris Money, who has worked in the world of baby products for over 15 years. Chris and Emma met through a mutual friend, when she had been struggling a little bit with her own boys' skincare. Both of Emma's sons had been suffering with eczema. She got speaking to Chris, and started chatting - and the result is Kit & Kin!

Kit and Kin nappies

Six-month-old Ava Grace takes the Kit & Kin nappies for a spin!

Alongside the range of nappies, which are designed with cute woodland characters on the bottom, there is a product range, which includes magic salve, body wash and cream. They are all natural, with no synthetic fragrances, but still capture that unmistakable 'newborn' smell.

Kit and Kin products Emma Bunton

And the dynamic duo aren't just talking the eco-friendly talk. The majority of the nappies take just 3-6 years to biodegrade. They also have a partnership with World Land Trust, so that for every ten babies wearing their nappies, they buy and preserve an acre of the rainforest, through the Trust.

Emma, also an ambassador for Unicef, felt very strongly about their credentials. She felt that the products had to work, naturally, and nappies had to keep a baby dry for 12 hours, but smelling good was also on her checklist. But this is only the beginning, since the range will hopefully include organic swaddles in the future.
