This Fan Thought Blake Lively Was Baby Spice in Epic Throwback Pic

Before she was one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, Blake Lively was just like Us dressing up as her favorite pop star at a mid-’90s concert.

A fan took to Twitter on Friday, August 3, to reveal that she “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.”

The 30-year-old Gossip Girl alum couldn’t help but get in on the fun, retweeting the adorable photo and writing, “my secret is out …”

Lively then reposted the photo — which shows her in full Baby Spice mode wearing her long blonde locks pulled into pigtails and sky-high platform shoes — to 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)”

To which the real Baby Spice, Emma Bunton, gushed over. “So cute,” the 42-year-old singer commented. “You’re rocking those pigtails @blakelively.”

And the fun didn’t end there. Lively then fangirled over the comment from the former Spice Girls member. “@Emmaleebunton I’m officially [dead],” she replied with four skull emojis. “Forever bowing down to you. I cannot believe you know who I am. This will never be normal.”

Followers flooded the comment section with adoration for both Lively and Bunton. “This post and the exchange between @blakelively and @emmaleebunton just made my life,” one wrote. “I am almost 30 and I would still probably cry if I see all or any of the Spice Girls.
