A photo of a pre-famous Blake Lively surfaced over the weekend, that showed the former Gossip Girl actress posing with another young girl at a Spice Girls concert. The photo was found by a young woman named Bria Madrid, after digging through old photos and coming across one with her at the Spice Girls concert. Bria, who was about five at the time, is seen posing in the photograph with a young blonde girl dressed as Baby Spice, complete with pigtails and white platform shoes. After a closer look at the picture, Bria realized that this Baby Spice was, in fact, a young Blake Lively. She quickly posted the photo online, after realizing her discovery, saying: “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”.
According to VT.Com, the social media post went viral, with even Blake Lively herself seeing the photo. “My secret is out…”, she commented, after retweeting to photo to her one million followers. On Instagram, Lively wrote: “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).”
The story continued its crazy ride when Emmalee Bunton saw the photo and responded to her tag in Lively’s post. “So cute, you’re rocking those pigtails”, the former Baby Spice told Lively.
