Blake Lively's Reaction to Baby Spice Commenting on Her Pigtails Is *Everything*
Ready for some celeb nostalgia? Twitter lost its mind over the weekend when a user named Bria Madrid posted an amazing throwback pic: She’s at her first concert (the Spice Girls, natch), posing with a preteen in pigtails. The caption? “Found a picture when I was 5 at my first concert. #SpiceGirls and took a picture with a girl dressed up as Baby Spice who I just realized now was @blakelively.” Wait. WHAT?!
So, you're telling us before she was one of the biggest names in Hollywood, Lively was just a super-fan much like ourselves? Who knew we had so much in common?
Lively reposted the photo on her own Twitter and Instagram with the caption: “Pretending to be someone else… since 1997 (Thanks @briaaamadrid for the photo of us at the Spice Girls concert. Sorry -not sorry- I tricked you into thinking I was @emmaleebunton).”But the best part? BabySpice (aka Emma Bunton) wrote back on Lively’s post: “So cute, you’re rocking those pigtails @blakelively” with two little-girl-with-pigtail emojis.
Cue Lively’s freak out when she realized her idol had noticed the pic: “@emmaleebunton I’m officially..” and alllll the skull emojis, meaning Lively has perished from the sheer fan-girl moment of having an actual Spice Girl comment on her pic.
But, wait, there’s more. Lively continued with “Forever bowing down to you. I cannot believe you know who I am. This will never be normal.”
Needless to say, this was a complete fan-girl inception…and we’ll never be normal about Spice Girls either, TBH.
