Geri Halliwell is set to marry her millionaire boyfriend after just seven months together.

The former Spice Girls star started dating Christian Horner around January earlier this year, and it is said the Formula One boss proposed a few weeks ago.

An insider told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: ''Geri is delighted and has been telling close friends about the plans - but they have been more cautious around his family.

''They made the decision to get engaged this spring but have kept it quiet to avoid any awkward fall outs.

''Some of his family are still unsure about the situation. They weren't impressed at the breakdown of his relationship with Beverley just six months after the baby's birth.''

Meanwhile, Mel C recently revealed Geri and her former bandmates are playing matchmaker as they try to set her up with guys.

She previously told BANG Showbiz: ''The girls always try and set me up with men, just like any friends, but we haven't had any success yet. There's been a couple of occasions. But I'm a little too busy being a mum and working.''
