Victoria Beckham has been asked by Geri Halliwell to be godmother to her baby girl Bluebell, according to reports.

Geri's child is due to be christened this weekend in a private ceremony after being born 11 months ago.

George Michael's boyfriend Kenny Goss has also reportedly been asked to be godfather.

A source told the Sun: "Victoria was thrilled to be asked to be godmother.

"Although they fell out when Geri walked out on the Spice Girls years ago, they became really close again. Geri's relied on her old friend for advice on motherhood and is delighted Victoria is flying over.

"Kenny will be godfather - so she will have interesting godparents."

Fellow former Spice Girls Melanie C and Emma Bunton have also been invited to the ceremony along with Michael.

Victoria is expected to be flying in from Madrid for the occasion.

According to the paper, the father of Geri's child, Sacha Gervasi, is not expected to be at the christening.
