Los Angeles - Geri Halliwell has announced she's engaged to Christian Horner.

The engagement of the 42-year-old Spice Girls singer and the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Formula 1 boss was confirmed in a £324 notice in the Births, Marriages and Deaths page on Tuesday morning's The Times newspaper.

The post reads: "Mr C.E.J. Horner OBE and Geri Halliwell, The engagement is announced between Christian, son of Mr and Mrs G.M. Horner and Geraldine, daughter of the late Mr L.F. Halliwell and Mrs A. Parkinson."

The pair, who have been friends since 2009, started dating in March 2014, and rumours have been circulating for some time that they are set to tie the knot.

Geri also took to her Twitter account to share the news.

Christian, 40, recently separated from his long-term partner of 14 years, Beverley Allen, with whom he has a daughter, Olivia, while Geri has an eight-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.

No wedding date is included in the ad, but Geri and Christian have become the latest celebrity couple to confirm their engagement via a notice in the broadsheet.

Last week, Hollywood star Benedict Cumberbatch announced his engagement to girlfriend Sophie Hunter via a note in The Times.

It read: "The engagement is announced between Benedict, son of Wanda and Timothy Cumberbatch of London, and Sophie, daughter of Katharine Hunter of Edinburgh and Charles Hunter of London." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
